Shake Table Testing in Studying Liquefaction-Induced Shallow Foundation Settlement and Mitigation Measures (Live Webinar)

Ramin Motamed, PhD, PE

In this webinar, Dr. Ramin Motamed will present his research that examines the efficacy of different remedial measures including helical piles, lowering the groundwater level, and installing sheet piles in mitigating liquefaction-induced settlement of shallow rigid foundations. The presented results are based on an extensive series of shaking table model tests conducted at large and moderate scale levels. The models were based on similar subsurface ground conditions observed in recent earthquakes where shallow liquefiable soil layers imposed significant damage to the building foundations.

Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in-place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
