Cellular cofferdams are basically two types:

(1) Circular type

(2) Diaphragm type

**Circular type: Circular type consists of individual
**

large diameter circles connected together by arcs of

smaller diameter. These arcs usually intersect the

circles at a point at 30o or 45o with the longitudinal

axis of the cofferdam.

It requires less number of piers per linier meter of cofferdam as compared with the diaphragm type of an equal design.Advantages of the Circular type: 1. . Each cell can be filled independent of the other without hampering the progress of work 4. 2.. The circular type can be used singularly in a group or at end.) 3. sudden floods etc. It will not collapse in the event of failure of adjoining cells (due to interlock damage.

. The stress is smaller than at the point of circular cell of comparable design.• Diaphragm type: It consists of two series of arcs connected together by diaphragm perpendicular to the axis of the cofferdam. 2. This will not increase the interlock stress which is a function of the radius of the arc. It has uniform interlock stress through the section at any given level. Generally the radii of these arcs are made equal to the distance between they arcs of smaller diameter. Advantages of the Diaphragm type: 1. It can be widen readily by increasing the length of the diaphragm if it is required by stability.

each sheet pile must deflect at a relatively large angle from the straight line in order to form the desired circle. Cell fill Steel cells: Steel cells are fabricated out of steel sheet piles. . In large diameter cells any two adjacent piles are almost on a straight line. however.Components of cellular cofferdams: 1. Steel cells 2. In smaller cells.

The fill should be as dense as possible. 4. 2. It should be posses high angle of friction. Normally. 3. It should possess large resistance to scour and leakage.Cell fill: The material used for the cell fill should have the following properties- 1. natural deposits of mixed sand and gravel posses all of these desirable properties and as such are the best materials for the cell fill . The fill should be free-drainage granular soil with little fine particles. Well graded soils are most suitable.
