Diaphragm Walls – Design and Construction

Ronan Leroy

The presentation will initially review the concept, objectives and construction method of diaphragm walls. This will be followed by an interesting case study of a quay project whose concepts can be applied to projects of similar nature in Western Australian ports. Also, the concept of curved diaphragm walls without anchors will be introduced and a recent project which has utilized three cellular diaphragm walls for one of the world’s largest private condominiums in Singapore will be reviewed in detail.
