## Exercises 7.3 & 7.5

The worksheets in this spreadsheet illustrate the use of the BS8002 & EC 7
state design methods for the design of cantilever sheet pile walls.

Although the spreadsheet contains the data for Exercises 7.3 and 7.5 from
data may be changed so that the reader can see the effect of varying the s
retained height etc.
Instructions:

1. On opening the spreadsheet, the user must click "Enable Macros" in the
dialog box. (The macros contain the algorithms used to determine the des

2. As the routines call data from the partial factors spreadsheet, a dialog b

values, click "Don't Update". If, however, you have changed values in the p
