Helical Piles Design, Installation and Testing

This two-day course will focus in detail on the basic fundamentals of helical piles, including  the different design theories for piles subjected to axial and lateral loads. It will also explore the most recent advances for helical piles subjected to seismic and machine loads. Types of helical piles, installation methods, and the effect of geometrical configurations on their performance and capacity will be discussed. A thorough treatment of the different field testing programs (i.e. static and cyclic loading tests) will be provided together with a brief description of instrumentation techniques. The most recent advances in the construction and performance of square-shaft small diameter piles, as well as the circular-shaft large diameter piles, will be presented. It takes place Thursday and Friday, March 7-8, 2013, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., at the Holiday Inn & Suites, Capilano Room, 1110 Howe Street, Vancouver. For more information and to register, visit Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
