Soldier Piles are purely a cantilever support and can be supported by additional anchors or bracing as lateral support.
Soldier pile walls are common piled walls for basements where ground conditions are generally consistent soils, clays or rock. Piles are typically drilled at intervals of 0.9 – 3.0m with the infilling or lagging provided by shotcrete panels or timber sleepers/precast planks.
If the soldier pile is cast in situ it may be constructed with conventional bored piling techniques.
In a basement construction, soldier piles may be designed to accommodate load points for the final structure, resulting in significantly longer piles beneath perimeter columns. Following the construction of a capping, the excavation proceeds with shotcrete infill panels constructed to provide the lagging between the piles transferring lateral loads into the soldier system.
