“Case History: Instrumentation and Monitoring of the Port of Anchorage Expansion Project”
The Port of Anchorage is undergoing a multi-phase expansion utilizing Open Cell Sheetpile Structures. These structures consist of driven sheetpiles in consecutive “U” shaped cells and are subsequently backfilled with granular material. The height of these cells range from 40 to 110 feet. Terracon was subcontracted to instrument the sheetpile structures prior to backfilling in order to compare the actual cell performance after backfilling with the estimated performance using finite element analyses. This presentation will discuss the many challenges of the instrument program implementation and the instrumentation utilized, as well as a brief discussion of the observed behavior relative to the predicted behavior from the finite element analysis.
