WhAT is A DiAphr Agm WAll?

A diaphragm wall is an underground concrete structural

element commonly used for retention systems and permanent foundation walls. They can also be used as deep groundwater barriers. in this case it is used as our permanent basement wall solution. Diaphragm walls are commonly referred to as D-Walls.

The basement D-Wall/retention system for one one one Eagle street will be installed at ground level before excavation of the basement commences. D-Walls are commonly used in congested areas as they can be installed

in close proximity to existing structures.

WhErE Will ThE D-WAll BE loCATED?

The D-Wall will be located on three sides within the construction boundary line. The wall will be 640mm wide and 19m in depth.

WhEn Will ConsTruCTion of ThE D-WAll hAppEn?

installation of the D-Wall is to commence in early 2009 and will take between 2-4 months depending on the ground conditions encountered.

hoW Will ThE D-WAll BE ConsTruCTED?

The D-Wall will be typically constructed in the following manner:

Step 1: 1:
Step 1:
1:

A guide wall is installed to set out the position of the D-Wall.

A guide wall is a temporary concrete

structure built either side of the D-Wall

location and used to ensure that the panels are excavated vertically and

in tolerance.

Step 2: Step 3: 2: D-Wall construction begins with primary trenches being excavated in ‘hit
Step 2:
Step 3:
2:
D-Wall construction begins with primary
trenches being excavated in ‘hit and miss’
(alternating) sections or ‘panels’.
As each panel is excavated, the soil
is
replaced with a bentonite solution.
Bentonite* is cementitious slurry,
which exerts hydraulic pressure against
the trench walls and acts as shoring to
prevent collapse.
3:
A crane places a pre-fabricated panel
reinforcement cage through the
bentonite slurry within the excavation.
Step 4:
4:
Concrete is poured into the panel to
displace the bentonite slurry.
This is done using one continuous
operation through a tremie (funnel
type pipe) that extends to the bottom
of
the excavation.
The tremie pipes are extracted as the
concrete rises; however, the discharge
end of the tremie pipe always remains
embedded in the fresh concrete.

steps 1-4 are continued in a ‘hit and miss’ sequence to create a continuous wall, the D-Wall.
