PILE WALL Filed Aug. 7, 1950 Patented Dec. 8, 1931 UNITE@ STATES ARTHR MA'UTERER, OF DORTMUND, GERMANY PILE WALL Application led August 7, 1930, Serial No. 473,685, and in Germany August 7, 1929.

This invention relates to coder-dam or pile wall constructions and aims to provide an improved method and means of correcting or compensating for inclination of the pile .i sections during ramming.

In the case of pile walls which are rammed in the form of boxes, and wherein the connection of the separate bars or sections of the pile walls are located on the outside, the disadvanxo tage of having the piles become inclined relatively to the vertical is very great, because it becomes inconvenient and often most diflicult in the ramming of a wall to close the joints formed at the meeting points at the ends-d 13 since the piles of course will not be parallelin a suitable manner and without considerable consunption of power. Inclination invariably occurs in the ramming of the wall whether long or short and regardless of Where it is begun, and this must be eliminated in some manner if the inclination to the vertical eX- ceeds a predetermined amount.

According to the present invention, these disadvantages are eliminated in that intermediate portions for effecting the equalization are inserted only in one of the outer walls of the pile. These inserts consist of two parts which are applied in the known manner (by welding or the like) by means of a shaping iron which takes up the resistance, while the two side portions are formed with the necessary taper to correct the inclination. A connection of the other outer Wallis not necesa that the equalizing portion (the so-called ramming equalization) can be produced in the simplest manner.

In the accompanying drawings is illustrated an example'of construction according to the invention.

Figure 1 represents a plan view of a boxshaped pile wall constructed with the new intermediate corrective member, and

Figure 2 is a side elevation of said member sary in this case, so that it has the advantage looking in the direction of the arrow in Figure l.

The-applied intermediate member is shown to consist of two suitably shaped side portions a and which are welded or otherwise joined together along a central longitudinal line indicated at c. In conjunction with this is a support d connected to the side portions c and b thereof at e by welding or other securing and which serves to stiften and rigidly support the two plates. The side portions or plates have suitable locking formation or means by which they are suitably connected with the adjacent portions of the pile as shown in the illustrative example.

The described means will obviously correct or compensate for inclination and being very simple both in form and application provides a decided improvement with advantages over prior expedients of the kind.

I claim 1. In a pile wall of box-shape construction, means for correcting or compensating for inclination of the component sections during ramming into position, comprising tapered or wedge-shaped plates joined together along a central longitudinal line and having edges adapted to locking connection with the ends of said sections, combined with a reinforcing I-shaped member applied against the backs 7f, thereof along the line of unity and joined or secured thereto along or parallel to said line; the means as a unit being inserted at intervals between adjacent sections of the Wall where the correction or compensation of inclination thereof is to be eected.

2. In a pile wall of box-shape construction wherein locking connection of the component sections is at the outer side, means for correcting or compensating for inclination of the sections during ramming into position, comprising tapered or wedge-shaped plates joined along a central longitudinal line and having edges adapted to locking connection with the ends of the sections, combined with a reinforcing I-shaped member applied against the backs thereof along their line of jointure and united thereto along edges parallel to said line; said means as a unit being inserted at intervals between adjacent sections of the wall where correction or compenastion of inclination is necessary.

3. Inclination correction means for a pile wall according to claim l, wherein the tapered plates are connected together by welding.

4. Inclination correction means for a pile wall according to claim l, wherein the tapered plates are connected together and with the reinforcing member by welding.

In testimony whereof I alix my signature.

ARTHUR MAU'IERER.
