2019-20 DFI Traveling Lecture at ASCE Geo-Institute Pittsburgh Chapter Dinner Meeting

March 19, 2020

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The 2019-20 DFI Traveling Lecturer Willie M. NeSmith, P.E., will be delivering his presentation on the Application of Cast in Place Piles in Intermediate Geomaterials at ASCE Pittsburgh's Geo-Institute Dinner Meeting.

The presentation will focus on how the development of more powerful and robust installation platforms has made it feasible to install cast-in-place piles into materials once considered too resistant for the system. This lecture reviews current installation platforms and tooling and presents case histories for installation in soft limestone, partially weathered rock, shale and glacial till.
