Soil Structure Interaction: The Connection that Matters

Presented by Allen Cadden, P.E., D.GE


Schnabel Engineering

Receive (1.0) PDH

12Noon - 1PM EST


Presentation Topic:

Solving challenging foundation issues requires close coordination of the project’s structural designers and the geotechnical designers. We will explore the subsurface challenges of three projects to review the critical interaction between the below grade and above grade structure and the value provided when the team works together. The first will address coordination and interaction of battered piles in a karstic environment, the second the impact of non structure loading on ground conditions and building performance, and the final one will look at the challenges of designing and building an 85 ft tall retaining wall. Unforeseen conditions are right around the corner when the project team is not working together.
