Steel Cofferdam Design and Calculation for High Pile Cap Construction
Using the steel cofferdam of Xinzhao Pearl River Bridge in Guangzhou City as the engineering background, structural designing and size proposing of steel cofferdam are introduced briefly. To ensure structural safety, general purpose finite element software Ansys was used to analyze structural strength and stability. Load styles and boundary conditions were also discussed. 6 load cases with calculating model were presented.
