You can save 20% when enrolling for all four webinars in the series.

After participating in this course, you will be able to

  • Estimate the lateral capacity and deflection of piles
  • Choose the proper improvement technique to enhance the lateral capacity of piles
  • Analyze pile-load test results

Description
Pile foundations are sometimes used to withstand lateral forces and moments experienced in offshore structures and high-rise buildings. The pile foundations' lateral load capacity and deflection will govern the pile's performance in this scenario. The lateral performance of the piles depends on the pile characteristics (length, diameter, stiffness) and the surrounding soil properties. 

This lecture focuses on the analysis of pile behaviour under lateral loads. The lateral load-carrying capacity estimation will be presented for both short and long piles in cohesive and cohesion-less soils. The lateral pile deflection will also be estimated for single piles and pile groups.

Outline

  • Factors affecting the lateral capacity of piles
  • The lateral capacity of single piles and pile groups
  • Pile lateral deflection
  • Design considerations for laterally loaded piles
  • Methods to increase the lateral capacity of piles

Who Should Attend
Those who deal with construction-related geotechnical engineering issues or need to build background on geotechnical analyses and design, including:

  • Civil, Environmental and Transportation Engineers/Technicians
  • Geologists, city and public works officials/planners
Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time
