Online Helical Pile Design Workshop

(Part of out Foundation Piles Design Workshop)

Gain expertise and confidence with step by step instructions!


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.
