ASCE Week: Deep Foundations: Design, Construction, and Quality Control

When: 3/24/2022 - 3/25/2022
Where: 14651 Chelonia Parkway, Orlando, FL 32821

Deep foundations are commonly used to support all types of infrastructure features in all types of site and geotechnical conditions. The purpose of this seminar is to present modern techniques for the design, installation, and verification of deep foundations. Over the past twenty-five years, major changes have occurred in the deep foundations industry. New improved methods have been developed for installing all types of deep foundations, increased loads are being used, new quality control procedures have been developed, and updated specifications are used. For driven piles, higher loads can be achieved with new hammers, dynamic quality control methods have been adopted, wave equation analysis is being widely used, and higher strength materials are becoming common. Auger-cast piles are being used with increasing frequency. High capacity drilled shafts are being utilized more frequently. New design methods and specifications have been adopted in many codes and specifications. The course instructors will present modern design and construction procedures for deep foundations including discussions on recent developments.
