Deep Foundations Settlement Analysis (Single & Group Piles) (0.2 CEUs / 2 PDHs) (2 hr Webinar)

This Webinar is scheduled for February 19, 2019 @ 11am MST (1pm EST) for 2 hours.

Note: If you register and are unable to attend, access to a recording of the session will be provided. There is a no cancellation policy.
 
Description
 
Settlement analysis is one of the important requirements when it comes to design of both of shallow and deep foundations of structures, tanks, bridges..etc. This course is focusing on discussing the importance of the settlement analysis and also presents selected practical methods that can be used in performing settlement analysis (i.e., elastic settlement & consolidation settlement). The course will focus on settlement analysis methods used for deep foundations (i.e., single & group piles).
 
Objective
 
The objective of this course is to provide the participants with an opportunity to gain comprehensive understanding of the practical deep foundations settlement analysis methods and how to apply them in day-to-day engineering
practice easily.  

Target Audience

This course is intended for practicing civil engineers at different stages in their careers, civil engineering students and graduates, and engineering technologist who are interested in understanding the concept of deep foundation settlement analysis and the practical foundation settlement analysis methods that can be applied in calculating settlements of real foundation engineering problems scenarios. Some familiarization with soil mechanics is desirable but the knowledge is not required at a specialist level. 

After you attend this course/workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of foundations design,
  • Recognize the importance of settlement & analysis and consideration in the design process,
  • Use practical methods of foundation settlement analysis (immediate/elastic and long-term/consolidation settlement),
  • Perform foundation settlement analysis, and
  • Work on provided (solved) examples.  

Dr. Gamal Abdel Aziz

Dr. Gamal Abdelaziz, P.Eng, MSc. has a Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.

Dr. Abdelaziz has served as a senior geotechnical engineer at DST Consulting engineers, Sarafinchin Consulting engineers, Trow Consulting and EBA engineering. Currently he is the managing director of SAGA Engineering, Edmonton, AB, Canada. 

Dr. Abdelaziz has over 32 years of experience in geotechnical and structural engineering, foundation design, teaching, research and consulting in Canada and overseas.

Dr. Gamal has designed and delivered over one hundred geotechnical engineering workshops which are very well received by practitioners engineers in Canada and globally.

Currently he is a senior geotechnical engineer with SAGA Engineering, Edmonton, Alberta. His duties include revision of geotechnical design, including slope stability, foundation and machine foundation design, soil investigation, design of cuts and earthfills, evaluation of stability of existing slopes, slope reinforcement using geotextiles, geogrids, soil nails, base reinforcement to support earthfills on soft subgrade soils, Erosion protection using geocells matting, rip rap, stabilization of unstable slopes, evaluation of soil bearing capacity to support footing foundations, Settlement studies, deep foundations including driven piles, auger injected (CFA) piles, additional support to existing foundations by underpinning utilizing concrete panels, grouting, micropiles, evaluation of earth pressures on retaining walls, security of excavation base, tieback support, etc.

Dr. Abdelaziz is a former adjunct professor at University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada, visiting professor at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada and part time professor at Seneca College, Toronto, Canada.

Dr. Abdelaziz is specialized in numerical modeling for solving sophisticated geotechnical engineering problems with respect to pile foundation and the linear and nonlinear analysis of soil-structure interaction. He designed charts to predict pressures acting on tunnels, and developed an analytical model for pile bearing capacity prediction.

Dr. Abdelaziz authored a number of technical papers and delivered numerous internal and external workshops on various geotechnical and Municipal engineering topics. Dr. Abdelaziz has been involved in a number of projects in Canada and overseas, such as tunneling, silos, buildings, retaining structures, siphons, irrigation networks and many other civil engineering projects in terms of design and construction.

Education @ Your Desk. A Live Webinar Class means that you will attend the class via the web using your computer. There are scheduled breaks for coffee and lunch. You use a microphone, headset, or your phone and are able to interact with the instructor and other students while following notes while watching the presentation slides online just as you would in a live classroom. Notes are posted online. For an extra cost a hard copy can be requested.

The virtual classroom is becoming more and more popular, and we have a lot of experience teaching in this format. The only real difference between a live in-class and live via webinar is where you sit and what you look at. You can learn from the comfort of your own home or office. You pay less for the live webinar format than you would for the in-class format, and you do not have to travel to another city to attend the class. Please contact us at gic@gic-edu.com for Special Group & Corporate Rates for one or more participants.

We could offer any of our courses at a location of your choice and customized contents according to your needs, please contact us at : inhouse@gic-edu.com or click here  to submit an online request.
