At the end of this course, the participant will be

• Know the different types of piles according to their operating mode • Choose the appropriate piling technique for your project • Estimate the axial and lateral bearing capacities of the piles • Estimate the stiffness of their springs • Become familiar with the Broms approach to lateral capacity Description : A training course for people who want to learn and/or improve their level of expertise in everything related to the design of deep foundations, essentially calculations of axial and lateral bearing capacity and estimation of lateral spring stiffnesses . Target Clientele: This training is aimed at geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, civil engineers, contractors, promoters, owners and also anyone with a civil engineering background (technical or university), with equivalent training or professional experience. or working in the field of civil engineering. Program : • Type of existing piles in the market: advantages and disadvantages • Calculation of the axial and lateral bearing capacity (single piles versus group of piles) • Calculation of spring's stiffnesses • Broms's method • Examples to investigate (eg.: Bridge pillar resting on a group of piles)
