Workshop on Design and Performance of Deep Foundations under Liquefied Soil Conditions

December 2016
IIT Madras
Chennai, India
Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) of India is happy to announce this workshop on on the eve of the Indian Geotechnical Conference, IGC 2016, with the theme ‘Geotechnology Towards Global Standards’ on 15-17 December 2016. The three-day conference is being organised by the Chennai Chapter of Indian Geotechnical Society, IIT Madras, and College of Engineering Guindy of Anna University and the workshop by DFI. The workshop is designed as two sessions. The morning session is on ‘Design and performance of deep foundation under liquefied soil conditions’ and the post lunch session is on ‘Experiences in the design and execution of deep excavation.' The workshop is expected to cover the following issues: The external loads induced by liquefaction; the design models; degraded geotechnical parameters; performance studies; practical application of the models; groundlaboratory investigations for geotechnical parameters; code provisions and modications; case histories; design and execution of deep excavation in soft ground; construction and monitoring; and excavations in urban environments.
