This routine analyses anchored sheet pile walls using the "elastic line" method. A complete description of the method with examples is shown here; review this completely when using this routine. The program assumes the following:
  1. Soil is homogeneous and granular.
  2. Water table is between the support and the excavation line.
  3. Support is no more than halfway down from the pile head to the excavation line.
  4. Buoyant weight is half the saturated unit weight of the soil.

Remember to choose whether you want to work in SI or US units when starting the program!
