ABOUT THE EVENT /

The course-seminar comprises four parts presenting the essentials of the Unified Method of deep foundations design for capacity, drag force, settlement, and downdrag for single piles, pile groups, and piled foundations, which emphasizes analysis and design for settlement. The presentations are illustrated with case histories of testing and design analysis. Conventional head-down and bidirectional static loading test methods are detailed, including how to evaluate strain-gage measurements from instrumented pile loading tests and how to assess residual load. Settlement analysis is of vital importance to the design of piled foundations, and the course addresses principles of settlement analysis and how to calculate settlement of piles and piled foundations—single piles as well as pile groups. Pertinent aspects of construction procedures, Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD), and Reliability Base Design (RBD) are briefly addressed.
