Selected aspects of the design and construction of reinforced concrete sunk wells
Keywords: sunk wells, cylindrical tank, rectangular tank, cutting-edge, concrete plug, sinkability
The article provides basic information on the design and construction of sunk wells. Sunk wells are enginee-ring structures commonly used in construction, particularly under difficult soil conditions or when construction sites have a small area. Sunk wells are made using the “cut and lower” method, which means that the first segment to be lowered is equipped with a cutting-edge section (bottom blade) that cuts into the soil and the structure sinks into it. In design, it is necessary to take into account the phased execution of these structures and their spatial work. The article presents the loads working during the construction and operation of sunk wells, as well as the assumptions and guidelines for static calculations and dimensioning. When the sunk well steining is significantly high (the well is embedded deep), concreting and lowering are most often performed in two or three segments. The article describes the subsequent steps taken during the implementation of sunk wells, constantly changing static diagrams and the method of adopting them in calculations. It also presents the method of lowering sunk wells with possible implementation difficulties. The article is supplemented with exemplary drawings of the steining reinforcement, cutting-edge section and bottom plate of the well and the photos of selected realizations.
