World leading instructors: Steven Gencorelli, PE, Luis Oscar Garcia, P.E., Dimitrios Konstantakos P.E.


6.5 PDH Credits Available

Online workshop - design of foundation piles and helical piles, learn how to solve foundation design challenges

Beyond software, the seminar focuses both on theory and practice. Starting from simple examples to more advanced topics the worskhop is distilling years of deep foundation and helical pile design experience. The workshop will build on solid fundamentals, and help engineers minimize uncertainties in deep foundation design.
