For instance, a retaining wall or cofferdam design may give a required modulus, but is each particular section capable of being driven into the ground without buckling or loss of profile.

Section modulus is an exact mathematical calculation based on the geometry of the pile. If the geometry changes during driving - so does the section modulus.
