Overview

Note

This online course is one in a four part mini-series on Web Series: Foundation Engineering: From Site Investigation to Design. Topics in this series include:

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


After participating in this lecture you will be able to:

  • Determine the bearing capacity of different piles
  • Choose a proper pile system for a specific site
  • Estimate the settlement of pile foundation
  • Determine the pile capacity from pile load tests

Description
Pile foundations are generally used when the upper soil stratum is week and there is a need to transfer the structural loads to deeper and more competent strata. The load carrying capacity of pile foundations are provided by the toe bearing capacity as well as the pile shaft capacity through the interface pile-soil resistance.

This lecture aims to present basic concepts required for the design of pile foundations in different site conditions. Bearing capacity analysis of both single pile and pile groups will be discussed for various types of piles in different soil and rock strata. The pile settlement analysis will also be presented for both single piles and pile groups.

Course Contents

  • Factors affecting pile selection for different sites
  • Bearing capacity analysis of piles from both lab and field test results
  • Settlement analysis of pile foundations
  • Design considerations for piles under axial loads
  • Pile load tests

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
