The technical committees of DFI and ADSC will combine their industry expertise to organize SuperPile ‘19. This three-day conference will include presentations on the latest developments in Driven Piles, Augered Cast-in-Place/Drilled Displacement Piles, Micropiles, Marine Foundations, Testing and Evaluation of Foundation Systems, Seismic and Lateral Loads, Drilled Shafts, Ground Improvement (related to piling) and Helical Piles and Tiebacks. Presentations will also highlight recommended practices for project safety and resiliency from design through construction. Special technical sessions will be presented on safe working platform design for rigs and cranes, concreting practices for deep foundations and selection of proper drilling methods for overburden drilling.
On Wednesday, May 1, DFI committees will meet in the afternoon to discuss progress on various committee projects and in the evening from 6:30-8:00 p.m. the Women in Deep Foundations Committee will host a not-to-be-missed networking reception at the iconic Space Needle (purchase tickets separately).
On Thursday, May 2, plenary (combined) sessions will present a variety of technical topics featuring invited speakers as well as the annual Osterberg Lecture and presentation of the Ben C. Gerwick Award for Innovation in the Design and Construction of Marine Foundations.
Two parallel sessions on Friday, May 3, will provide attendees the option to choose presentations of interest. Invited and selected presentations will highlight advancements, innovations and challenges in design and construction of deep foundations, particularly related to piling solutions. Equipment, material and instrumentation suppliers, contractors, engineers, and other vendors will present their services in our Exhibit Hall.
