Abstract—There is growing need of basements, subways and other underground excavations in congested cities. Considering proximity of other structures and traffic problems open excavation may not be always feasible. Panels of small width, forming a wall are constructed along retention periphery, adequately designed as cantilever sheet piles and anchored in substratum to achieve stability against various forces may be adopted here. The particular problem is studied; equations developed for stability considering passive pressure and balancing couple by trial and error method, the results are verified with analytical model (FEM). Results are presented here.
