This book presents the current design practice of diaphragm walls, with an emphasis on the most effective techniques. It provides an overview of various approaches to diaphragm wall design and presents several successful techniques used in Boston's Central Artery/Third Harbor Tunnel (CA/T) Project. The CA/T Project, a massive civil engineering effort, employed more than three million square feet of diaphragm walls. Prepared by SEI/ASCE Technical Committee on Performance of Structures During Construction, this report focuses attention on the importance of techniques that take soil-structure interactions into consideration. In addition, the Committee's goal is to encourage research and development in the area of soil-structure interaction by encouraging dialogue, coordination, and cooperation between the geotechnical and structural engineering professions.
