SOLVED

Re: Maximize solve block with initial variables

Hello Terry,

 

I entered the soil parameters from the Caltrans Trenching & Shoring Manual Example 6-2, Cantilivered Soldier Pile Wall into the worksheet you provided and the value of Kph = 1.26 compares well with the calculated value of 1.20 from the example.  The only irregularity is that the example shows the soil at the base of the wall sloping at 1:1.6 (32 deg).  This value must be entered as beta = -32 in the worksheet for the soil slope at the top of the wall which is acceptable, considering the geometry of a soldier pile pushing into the supporting soil.
