Underground car parks | Guide books

[:fr]Guides et manuels pratiques sur les parkings souterrains. Ils sont le fruit d'études de marchés et d'analyses approfondies des us et coutumes des pays en question. Ces études se concentrent sur le dimensionnement et la mise en oeuvre des écrans de soutènement périphériques permanents en palplanches acier. Une analyse des coûts permet de comparer les différentes solutions d'un point de vue économique et technique (résistance au feu, etc). Les aspects environnementaux sont analysés en détail à l'aide d'une analyse du cycle de vie (ACV). Les Pays-Bas ont été le premier marché pris sous la loupe.[:en]Guide books for underground car parks, based on different market studies, focusing on design and installation of steel sheet pile walls (local conditions, costs, ...), and comparing them with alternative solutions. Additionally, a Life Cycle Assessment was performed for some of the studies (see the Sustainability page for more details).[:]

Benefits of steel solutions in bridge design

[:en]Today’s modern bridge construction projects face totally new challenges. The public, the regulators and the authorities demand new structures that are cost effective during their planning, execution, lifetime and dismantling. This translates into a higher relevance of the life cycle costs, and the so-called external costs associated with the execution and maintenance of the structure.[:]

Flood defence and riverbank protection

Cette brochure résume en quelques pages les solutions techniques pour la protection des zones habitées contre les inondations le long de cours d'eau ou de canaux. Ces solutions sont également appliquées pour le renforcement des berges de rivières et de canaux navigables.How to protect inhabited zones from recurring floods? In the past dykes were quite often simply built with soil and a clay core, but most of them have to be rebuilt or reinforced. Currently more and more of the new flood protection systems are being executed with steel sheet piles, a strong and durable material. Steel sheet piles can also preserve the riverbanks from erosion or enable enlarging of canals to cope with larger ships. This brochure highlights these solutions.
