The article presents a comparative analysis of metallic and composite sheet piling with a review of their technical characteristics. Two similar design scheme of the shore protection reconstruction with usage of different materials were considered. Constructive scheme is the erection of a new sheet pile wall and capping beam in dimensions of existing constructions adjacent areas. In the first case, an option for the construction of new metal sheet pile wall with concrete cap beam was considered, in the second – a version of the use of modern domestic composite sheet pilling ShK-150. Application possibility of modern ultra composite materials, received with the use of the pultrusion technologies is justified in this work. Application of the results of current justification of the use of composite materials will develop the methodology for applying composite material in hydraulic engineering construction.
