Auckland Online Presentation – Drilled Displacement Piles/Elements for Liquefaction Mitigation

October 28 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Presented by W.Morgan NeSmith (P.E), Director of Engineering, Berkel & Company, Atlanta, USA Liquefaction induced settlement or structure movement due to lateral spread are two significant design challenges in seismically active areas. In deep liquefiable sands (e.g. 9 m and deeper), traditional vibration or soil mixing techniques may prove to be financially and operationally inefficient. Drilled displacement systems that densify the sands by mechanically displacing them laterally can be an efficient alternative in this scenario. The presentation will provide background…
