The 2011 DFI / ADSC Micropile Seminar held last week in Little Rock, AR was an exciting whirlwind tour of micropile technology and featured presentations from the leading micropile practitioners in the United States and worldwide. The next Micropile Seminar will occur sometime in either Spring, Summer or Fall of 2012. Keep an eye out for information on this event that is likely to be combined with an Anchored Earth Retention seminar to boot.
If you are interested in LRFD for Micropiles, I have posted my presentation on the subject from the seminar on my Scribd page. You can view that presentation and others I have given in the past at http://www.scribd.com/jonbennett. If you have questions or comments as to other aspects you would like to see covered, let me know as I will be presenting a revised version at the next seminar.
In terms of upcoming Micropile industry events, don’t miss SuperPile this week in Charleston, SC. The next ADSC / DFI Joint Micropile Committee meeting will be held at the ADSC Summer Meeting also in Charleston, SC. Check ADSC’s website for information on that. Hope to see you at one of these events.
