Durability software - optimization of a sheet pile solution

Durability is a software that simplifies the choice of a steel sheet pile section, taking into account the durability of steel in different environments, as well as the service life of the structure.

It is a simple tool, yet quite powerful, for designs based on Eurocode 3 – Part 5 (EC 3-5) or on the Allowable Stress Design (ASD) method. The user just needs to input bending moments, shear forces, deflections, and so on.

Useful features
  • select the loss of steel thickness from the tables 4.1 and/or 4.2 of EN 1993-5,
  • consider reduction factors for the inertia and section modulus (EN 1993-5),
  • limit the choice to a pre-defined range of sheet piles or steel grade,
  • ...
The results are also summarized in a table showing all the acceptable solutions.
