SEAOC SSDM Webinar: Concrete Design Example 5 - Pile Foundation

 Registration is closed for this event

About the Webinar Series

These webinars continue SEAOC's series of seismic design examples problems using the provisions of the 2012 International Buildings Code (IBC). The webinars will present four examples of concrete systems from Volume 3 of SEAOC’s Structural/Seismic Design Manual (SSDM) Series: Examples for Concrete Buildings. Design examples will be presented in detail, addressing not only main concepts, but also the nuts and bolts of seismic-resistant design. Webinars will be from 11:30 to 1:00 on consecutive Thursdays. A question and answer period will be provided at the end of each webinar.

In This Webinar

The presentation includes a review of Example 5 of Volume 3, which pertains to the design of a cast-in-place concrete pile foundation.  The foundation addressed in the example is a post-tensioned concrete parking garage.  However, the pile design methodology is applicable to any building.  The presentation includes recommendations for coordination with the geotechnical engineer, determination of the most cost-effective geotechnical pile capacity for the project, determining the number of piles at each location, geotechnical and structural design of the piles to resist vertical and lateral loading, distribution of base shear, review of applicable Code requirements and recommendations for detailing.
