equipment and the right contractor.
In many cases, the use of a mandrel
allows contractors to install PVC sheet
piles to depths of 30 feet (9 m) or more,
and many contractors choose to use a
fixed-mast pile driving rig to speed up
the installation process. The 30-inch
(76-cm) and 24-inch (61-cm) width of
the PVC sheet piles used in these case
studies was also a factor in the sheet
pile products selected due to the speed
of the installation and reduced number of interlocks. Engineers preferred
the use of PVC sheet piling in applications involving contaminants due to
the superior corrosion resistance and
reduced ground disturbance. Engineers
should be comfortable specifying PVC
sheet piling in cutoff and containment
applications because PVC sheet piling
has been demonstrated to have realworld, long-term effectiveness.
