Webinar - Geotechnical Analysis of Rock-Socketed Drilled Shafts

Location: ASCE Continuing Online Education (All times are Eastern Time)
Date: February 26, 2018
Time: 9:15 PM – 10:35 PM

This webinar concentrates on the geotechnical analysis for drilled shafts that derive their axial and lateral resistance from rock sockets.  The webinar will be based on Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methodology as per the specifications of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).  Load transfer models for axial and lateral behavior of rock sockets will be discussed.  Selection of appropriate rock parameters and methods of axial and lateral load analysis will be presented.
