PODCAST of interest: Geotech perspectives on large diameter piles

Dr. Kathryn Petek who is a senior engineer at PDCA Engineering Affiliate member firm Shannon & Wilson, Inc. in Seattle, appeared  in a recent episode of the Geotechnical Engineering Podcast with host Jared M. Green, PE, D.GE, F.ASCE. 

If you haven't already, carve out 30 minutes to view the broadcast on YouTube; you'll hear Dr. Petek explain a fascinating driven pile project on which she worked to design a foundation for large diameter piles to be driven to depths of 120-140 feet. She recalls that despite the contractor installing the piles with a hammer smaller than specified, the dynamic testing was near-perfect.

It's an enjoyable segment in which she also describes her unique entry into the deep foundations industry while at the same time recalls her years at the University of Michigan. To access the full podcast in it's video version, please CLICK HERE.
