The Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) will be soliciting Committee Projects Fund proposals again this year with a slightly modified requirement set. The Committee Project Fund will provide financial support for DFI Technical Committee projects that advance the state of practice and understanding of deep foundations and produce a usable deliverable. All proposals MUST be submitted through a DFI Technical Committee.
If you have any ideas for Micropile Committee related projects that you would like to prepapre a proposal for, please contact me to discuss.
Information on this year’s Project Fund will be forthcoming soon but proposals will be due in December 2012 so it is very beneficial to get started early if interested.
Registration is now open for the ADSC / DFI Small Diameter Geo-Support Design and Construction Seminar!
The Small Diameter Geo-Support Design and Construction Seminar is a two-day event that will cover aspects of both anchored earth retention and micropile foundation support from a perspective of design, construction, and case history coverage. The seminar will feature presentations from leading North American and worldwide experts on the design and construction of small diameter geo-support systems. This practice-oriented seminar will be valuable to owners, engineers, architects, general contractors, and others in terms of understanding the fundamentals, applications, design, and construction of small diameter ground anchors and micropiles for earth retention and foundation support applications. There will be opportunities for networking and individual discussion with the panelists and presenters throughout this two-day event.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
