US Steel Sheet Pile Design - Cantilevered Wall (Granular Soil) with Cooper E80 Surcharge

Spreadsheet Description:
Computes the depth required, maximum moment, and section modulus required for Sheet Pile Design based on US Steel's Sheet Piling Design Manual. There is a sheet to analyze the effects of Cooper E80 loading per AREMA Specifications. However,  normal traffic or equipment surcharge loads can be used as well. Graphs are provided for Log Spiral Active and Passive coefficients.

Table of Contents:
1) Background and Instructions
2) Calculations for Pile Depth
3) Equation Solver and Graphical Check of Results
4) Maximum Moment and Section Modulus
5) Calculations and Graph of E80 AREMA Loading
6) Tables and Graphs of Log Spiral Curves Used for Active and Passive Coefficients

Instructions For Users:
1) Go to Pile Depth. Fill in white boxes with the appropriate data using drop lists

1) For use cohesionless soils
2) Ground water is lowered to the bottom of excavation

Units are a bit of a bug bear but maybe this could help /frequently-asked-questions/excelcalcs-faqs/trouble-with-units?/

It would be good to have both SI and Imperial Incorporated into the worksheet

How can I determine the deflection of the cantilever sheet pile. Is there a way of interpreting the graphs to determine it. Please let me
Know. Thanks Ray H.

I would like to have this spreadsheet but I need a design for cohesive soils
