The strength of the timbering used for this purpose necessarily depends upon the nature of the soil, the depth of the excavations, and the length of time it is.   Timber Construction Manual, Sixth Edition provides architects, engineers, contractors, educators, and related professionals with up-to-date information on engineered timber construction, including the latest codes, construction methods, and authoritative design recommendations.

Fig. Excavations To Pier Shafts. When excavating for a shaft a hole is excavated as deep as possible without the earth falling in. Vertical sheeting from 9 by 1 inch to 9 by 2 1/2 inches, according to the nature of the soil, is temporally strutted against the faces of the excavation. Walings running right across the excavation are held in position against two opposite sides and strutted by.
