E029 Engineering Workshop on Bored Pile and Micropile Foundation Design 1 Day

BEM Approved 8 CPD Hours (Ref No: IEM09/PP/033/W) Normal Price RM 650.00
(If Register Online RM 500.00 Only before 08-08-2009)
Introduction
SECTION 1:
• Practical Bored Pile & Micropile Foundation Design: Design concept; Guides & checklists for comprehensive design; Applications & limitations.
• 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
• Case Histories to illustrate how to design bored piles & micropiles with particular reference to estimation of axial, lateral load capacity, settlement and scheme of design validation will be illustrated and presented.
• Comprehensive technical notes and slides will be illustrated and distributed to participants for reference when doing the assignment/case studies

SECTION 2: Case study 1
• Project briefs related to site conditions/site contour plan, loadings and Client’s requirements for a mixed commercial housing project consisting of one block of high-rise RC buildings including deep basement car park near a high slope where high retaining walls are required. The project site geology is Kenny hill formation & the site terrain is generally hilly. Site plan with necessary details 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. SI report will be subsequently given and the participants are required to consider and select suitable pile systems and wall systems for the project. Compare the pros and cons for each feasible systems considered. Give basis of selection and justifications. Recommend the most appropriate system for implementation.
3. To design the piling system recommended including estimation of geotechnical pile axial capacity, lateral pile capacity, negative friction, settlement plus structural capacity, etc.
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.
• Participants will be given adequate guides and advice during the course of the workshop.

SECTION 3: Case study 2
• as case study 1, but in limestone formation.

SECTION 4: Case study 3
• Several maintained load test/PDA results for bored piles and micropiles will be given for the participants to evaluate, to interpret and assess/recommend whether the results are technically acceptable or otherwise.
• Comments & advice for the case studies will be discussed.
