What does this Excel Sheet do?
This Excel sheet helps you evaluate the strength of a Shear Key
Shear Keys are structural elements which can be used in a variety of scenarios
For driven piles, they can transfer the load from the sleeve to the pile
For drilled piles, shear keys are used to prevent failure at the Steel/Grout interface so that the pile capacity will be governed by rock to grout bond
The spreadsheet is based on API RP2A WSD 2005 Sec 7.4
