Struts are supports, generally made of steel or concrete but sometimes also of timber, which are used to retain the walls of a vertical excavation. They are installed inside the excavation as the earthworks progress and generally support each side of the excavation. They can also be angled and supported at the bottom of the excavation, in which case they are referred to as rakers.
Struts can be used for any type of retaining structure – soldier piles, sheet piles, diaphragm walls, secant piles or Soil Mixing – and for spans of up to around 30m in the usual cases (struts longer than 30 m can be considered for specific cases with suspended struts or stanchions).
