    Abstract

    This study reviews the theories and modelling methods of the interaction between soil and the embedded sheet pile structure covering the various responses and performance of both materials under various conditions. Interaction between soil and the embedded sheet pile structure is important considering the complex and indeterminate behaviour of both materials which results in non-linear structural deformation. The study affirms the importance of numerical computational tools in resolving the complex nature of interaction between soil and sheet-pile. Also, the study considers the contribution of various soil parameters in the interaction and the extent of response in terms of behavioure. deformation, stress distribution etc. It is found that the true behaviour and magnitude of deformation and stress distribution is generally dependent on the model and design technique chosen and all these in general contribute to the overall performance of both the soil and sheet pile wall.
