Current Topics in Soil Nailing/ Tiebacks and Landslide Stabilization Practices
February 24 - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
This one-day seminar is organized by Deep Foundations Institute and the Geotechnical Society of Edmonton and programmed jointly by DFI's Technical Committees on Soil Nails and Tiebacks and Landslide and Slope Stabilization.  Geotechnical specialists from academia and industry will present the fundamentals of design and construction for soil nail/tiebacks and landslide/slope stabilization practices and case histories and advances in construction methods.  Fundamentals will cover an overview of the appropriate geotechnical site conditions where these techniques are typically used, basic design approaches, materials and methods, limitations and references for additional learning.  Presentations will highlight specialty design and construction solutions using a strength reduction design method, hollow bars as soil nails and micropiles, launched soil nails, drainage combined with platypus anchors, jet grouting with micropiles, Platepiles and deep mixing.  A panel discussion will follow the presentations allowing time for questions and answers and interaction between speakers and attendees.  Exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are available.
