Basic methods for calculating sheet piling were presented in the paper. The Blum’s graphical and analytical- graphical methods were characterized for a sheet pile that is single anchored at the top and freely supported at the bottom. Methods for determining the sheet pile length, sinkage into the soil and the selection of the sheet pile profile were shown. The method for determining the reaction value on the sheet pile support was also presented. The calculated design parameters for both methods were compared in a table. On the basis of the above calculations, it was determined that the two calculation methods lead to similar cross-sections of sheet piling.
