Abstract : This report describes a computer program--CSHTSSI--for soil-structure interaction analysis of sheet pile retaining walls. The model employed for analysis of the wall-soil system is a special case of a general beam-column. Hence, CSHTSSI is a special-purpose application of the general-purpose, beam-column analysis program CBEAMC. The report: describes the wall-soil system, presents the procedures employed to generate nonlinear pressure-displacement curves from soils data, outlines the method of solution, and provides example solutions obtained with the program.
