Geotechnical Analysis for Rock-Socketed Drilled Shaft

Date & Time: 
Mon, 05/23/2016 - 11:30am - 1:00pm
Location: 
E.L. Robinson Engineering, 1801 Watermark Drive, Suite 310, Columbus, OH 43215
  • Offered for free to Central Ohio Section ASCE Members
  • Seating is limited to the first 25 people
  • Bring your own lunch

Purpose and Background
Drilled shafts are a common foundation selection for all types of structures. When the soil is relatively poor quality and the structure loads are relatively large, the shafts are often drilled through the poor soils into underlying rock mass is present. These shafts could be founded or seated on the rock mass surface, or they could be drilled into the rock mass to form a rock socket. This webinar concentrates on the geotechnical analysis for drilled shafts that derive their axial and lateral resistance from rock sockets. The webinar is based upon Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methodology as per the specifications of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). It discusses load transfer models for axial and lateral behavior of rock sockets. It also discusses selection of appropriate rock parameters and methods of axial and lateral load analysis.

Introduction to Jet Grouting

Purpose and Background
Jet grouting is defined as the injection of a fluid grout at high pressure to erode the soil partially replacing it and creating a soil-crete. This method is often used to for structural support, creating low permeability barriers, shoring, and underpinning. Applications are many, including liquefaction mitigation, controlling structure settlement, roof support for tunnels, mitigating karst subsidence, slope reinforcement, structural support, and more.
