E022 Engineering Workshop on Pile Foundation Design 1 Day

BEM Approved 8 CPD Points With Full Attendance Normal Price RM 650.00
(If Register Online RM 500.00 Only)
Introduction
Original date is 21-3-2009 RESCHEDULED to the 28-3-2009 (Saturday) 0900 - 1700 due to the unforeseen reason
NOTE: Participants are advised to bring their own Notebook/programmable calculator.

SECTION 1 (9.00-10.30)
• Practical Pile Foundation Design: Guides & checklists for scope of design.
• Guidelines for Planning, evaluation & interpretation of SI for pile foundation design.
• Checklists for what can go wrong in design & construction of pile foundation.
• Checklist for pile foundation design report preparation.

SECTION 2 (11.00-13.00)
• Case study 1: Project briefs related to site conditions, loadings and Client’s requirements for a mixed commercial housing project consisting of 2 blocks of high-rise RC buildings, several blocks of 3-sotrey shop lots, several blocks of 2-storey residential houses, retaining walls & a bridge will be given. Participants are advised to bring their own Notebook/programmable calculator. Software to estimate pile axial load capacity will be given.
• The participants in groups of 2 or 3 are required:
1. To plan necessary scope of SI for the project
2. A SI report will be subsequently given and the participants are required to select suitable pile systems for the buildings, walls and the bridge. Compare the pros and cons for each feasible system selected. Give basis of selection and justifications. Recommend the most appropriate system for implementation.
3. To recommend design loads for each pile system recommended based on estimation of geotechnical pile axial capacity, lateral pile capacity, negative friction, settlement plus structural capacity, etc. Typical catalogue of precast RC & spun piles will be given for participant to estimate structural pile capacity.
4. Recommendation of piling systems shall also include pile installation method and necessary precautions against possible excessive installation/driving stresses and potential pile structural integrity problems. List what can go wrong at site (based on SI report & site conditions) and necessary precautions/mitigations during the installation.
5. Propose necessary and appropriate scope of design validation and QC tests/measurements/observations/inspections to ensure the proposed pile systems recommended have adequate design details for successful implementation.

SECTION 3 (14.00-15.30)
• Case study 2: as case study 1, but in soft ground.

SECTION 4 (15.45-17.00)
• Case study 3: Several maintained load test/PDA results including one instrumented bored pile load test result for driven RC piles, bored piles and microples will be given for the participants to evaluate, to interpret and assess/recommend whether the results are technically acceptable or otherwise.
