E016 Engineering Practical Design, Installation And Testing Of Driven Piles, Bored Piles And Micropiles 1 Day

BEM Approved 8 CPD Points With Full Attendance RM290.00 for Graduate Engineer
RM350.00 for Professional Engineer
Introduction
SECTION 1 (9.00-10.45)
β€’ Scope of pile design including practical design & construction methods plus the necessary QC tests to verify and to validate the important design parameters, structural integrity and performance for various common pile types will be discussed and illustrated with case histories and examples.

SECTION 2 (11.00-13.00)
β€’Pile capacity estimation methods by various static formulas, driving formulas, high strain dynamic test method and various common pile tests to estimate capacity and structural integrity will be presented with particular reference to interpretation, limitations and applications. Methods of assessment of handling, installation and service stresses of driven piles will be presented with examples.

SECTION 3 (14.00-15.35)
β€’ What can go wrong in design, construction & testing of piles plus the suggested precautions and mitigations will also be presented with case histories to stimulate awareness among the participants about the need of comprehensive design checklist and good engineering practice.

SECTION 4 (16.00-17.00)
β€’ Case histories and worked design examples to illustrate how to plan scope of SI, preparation of subsoil profile & selection of design parameters to estimate pile axial & lateral capacity, group efficiency/effect, negative friction & settlement/deformation, etc., will be presented.
