Finite Element Analysis of Double-Walled Steel Box Cofferdam
Steel cofferdam has an abroad application in high pile cap construction in deep water foundations. Because of the obvious three-dimensional effect and its complex stress and strain, the traditional simplified calculating method couldn’t reach the requirements of practical engineering. The general purpose finite element software Ansys was used to analyze the stress and strain of steel cofferdam and sealing concrete, and achieved a good effect to ensure the engineering safety.
