Seminar Summary
A unique program is planned for the Helical Piles-Tiebacks-Anchors Tradeshow and Educational Seminar organized by DFI and Helical Pile World (HPW), June 4-5, 2019, at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The event includes a structured indoor technical education program each morning followed by an outdoor equipment exhibition and live installation and testing demonstrations that highlight the products, resources and expertise used to design, install and test helical pile and anchor elements for structural support and earth retention applications. The event also includes general exhibits featuring helical pile and anchor manufacturers and distributors, installation contractors and equipment manufacturers, pile testing service companies, and engineering service companies.
Indoor Program
The indoor technical educational program comprises presentations by helical pile experts on design, codes, QC/QA processes and innovations. The program also includes a Pile Prediction Competition in which participating attendees review subsurface and pile installation information and try to predict the compressive resistance of a pile installed at the site at various pile head displacements.
Outdoor Program
In the afternoons on both days, attendees will circulate through outdoor stations including a load test area and equipment exhibits presented by leading manufacturers and suppliers. At each station, industry experts will present information on all aspects of helical pile installation and testing, new applications and innovations for helical pile use and construction.
NOTE: Safety equipment is NOT needed to view live demonstrations. Only those demonstrating the equipment are required to have safety gear.
