ASCE Seattle Section Geotechnical Group - 27 February 2020
The Application of Drilled Displacement Elements for Liquefaction Mitigation and Foundation Improvement

Presenter:
Willie M. NeSmith, PE
Former Chief Geotechnical Engineer
Berkel & Company Contractors

ABSTRACT
When drilled displacement piles are installed in materials that exhibit granular behavior, there is a significant increase in density in the vicinity of the piles. The increase is most pronounced in loose to medium dense materials and can be utilized to mitigate liquefication and increase the foundation response stiffness of the mass of the material penetrated. Case histories are presented wherein ground improvement elements were installed using drilled displacement pile processes to mitigate liquefaction and increase allowable foundation loading.
