Soil Mixing and Micropiles: States of Practice for Design, Construction and Quality Assurance

September 08, 2016 - September 09, 2016
Rosen Shingle Creek
Orlando, FL
This two day seminar covered the evolution of the deep mixing industry and an advanced Micropile 201 design short course. DFI’s Soil Mixing Committee and ADSC-DFI Joint Micropile Committee supported by the International Society for Micropiles presented a 2-day seminar on soil mixing and micropiles. Following DFI's Soil Mixing committee meeting on September 7, the first full-day of the seminar on September 8 focused on evolution, design, quality control and assurance, specifications, acceptance criteria, highlighted by innovative regional case histories on the use of soil mixing for earthquake mitigation, soft soil and organic treatment, environmental applications, structure and embankment support, dams and levees, dredged material stabilization, and support of excavation. The second day, September 9, presented advanced design of micropiles, including geotechnical and structural design for structural support and slope stabilization, lateral loading, connection details, materials and construction techniques, and corrosion protection, supported by case histories.
