Deep Foundations – Drilled Shafts

Posted by Naresh Samtani on Jan 23, 2012

This webinar includes discussion on the terminology and construction of drilled shafts, identification of limit states and resistance factors, development and use of axial resistance charts, concept of mobilized resistance, group efficiency factors for evaluation of axial resistance of shafts in groups, p-multipliers for evaluation of lateral resistance of shafts in groups, redundancy, evaluation of settlement of shaft groups, use of construction point concept, uplift resistance, consideration of extreme event limits state such as scour and seismic events, and typical structural detailing. This webinar assumes that the participant has a basic working knowledge of design and construction of drilled shafts.
