Spring Short Course
When: April 26, 2019 @ 7:30am to 3:30pm
Where: Columbia Tower Club, Seattle
What: Excavation Supports and Dewatering Technics
Infrastructure and building construction often require deep excavations.These excavations must be supported to ensure the safety of workers and to minimize impact on adjacent properties and utilities. Excavation depths exceeding 10 to 20 feet require specialized planning and design for support. Often times deep excavations encounter groundwater, control of which is crucial to prevent failures due to excessive ground settlement. The short course is designed to increase the knowledge and skill of the practicing engineers / consultant / contractors / academician / students involved in geotechnical works in design and execution of a technically sound and economically feasible deep excavation and dewatering system. The participants shall have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the various methods of excavation support, design and numerical modeling of
excavations supports, control of groundwater and shoring construction.
Course attendees will be eligible to receive 0.7 Continuing Education Units (CEU) or 7 Professional Development Hours (PDH).
