Event description

Description

In Asia Pacific region, super-tall buildings and massive civil engineering structures have been constructed in the last few decades. The heavy load from the structure is required to be supported by a strong foundation. Deep foundations such as large diameter bored piles, high strength steel or concrete driven piles and barrettes are the best option. This one-day CPD course will share practical experience on the modern techniques for the design, installation and verification of deep foundations.

Course Outline

  • Ground investigation methods for deep foundation design and construction
  • Evaluation of soil and rock parameters for design and construction
  • Current standards and procedures for the design and installation of deep foundations
  • Fundamentals of the design process for deep foundations. Capacity determination for single piles and pile group subject to axial and lateral loads
  • Driven pile types and their installation
  • Large diameter bored piles and barrettes
  • Quality control and verification by pile loading test and dynamic test

Course code: CPD-005-2018
