CPD by Others
Code : 2015124
Event Name : Experience Sharing to the Use and Price of Steel Sheet Piles in Hong Kong and Macau
CPD Code : Formal Events
Speaker : Mr. Falko Zueck

Falko Zueck is a geotechnical engineer who has 10 years of experience in the steel sheet piling business. In 2001, Falko graduated from the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany, where he obtained a master degree. After working for a ground-engineering consultant for several years, Falko joined the technical department of ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling in Luxemburg. He has been involved in the design and optimization of numerous mayor port projects and had profound knowledge in finite element simulations of retaining structures. In 2012, Falko was stationed in São Paulo to set up a local engineering department in South America. He promoted the use of steel sheet piles and provided technical assistance in countries where steel foundation solutions have not been commonly used. Currently, Falko is in charge of providing technical support to customers in UK, NAFTA, CHINA and ASEAN countries.

Details :

Steel sheet piles are long structural sections with a vertical interlocking system that creates a continuous wall.  The wall is often used to retain either soil or water.  The ability of a sheet pile section to perform is dependent upon its geometry and the soil that it is driven into.


The speaker will introduce the use of steel sheet piles and share his experiences in the following areas:

  • General including cost aspects of different types of steel sheet piles;
  • Introduction tothe next generation of wide AZ-piles;
  • Benefits of “Eurocode” design for steel sheet piles;
  • Durability aspect of permanent steel structures;
  • Problems encountered in using steel sheet piles in Hong Kong and Macau; and
  • Cost elements to be considered in pricing steel sheet piles.
