Prepared by the Technical Committee on Performance of Structures during Construction of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE. This report presents the current design practiceAfor diaphragm walls, with an emphasis on the most effective techniques. It provides an overview of various approaches to diaphragm wall design and presents several successful techniques used in Boston's Central Artery/Third Harbor Tunnel (CA/T) Project, a massive civil engineering effort thatAemployed more than three million square feet of diaphragm walls. This report focuses attention on the importance of techniques that take soil-structure interactions into consideration.Technical Committee on Performance of Structures During Construction. 4.7 Effect of Wall Stiffness The wall stiffness used in the Base Model corresponds to a 3 W thick soldier pile tremie concrete (SPTC) wall with W36x300 members spacedanbsp;...
