Helical Piles in Practice (1 hr Complimentary Webinar)

This Webinar is scheduled for 11am MST (1pm EST) for one hour

Description

Helical foundation systems offer a versatile replacement of conventional deep foundations solutions. The most important differences between the helical foundations and the conventional foundation types are mainly in method of construction. Helical piles need much less construction time and could be used or loaded immediately. Helical piles could be used where conventional deep foundation cannot. Underpinning is the best example of these unique differences.

The fundamental mechanisms by which helical piles develop resistance to load are described in a manner consistent with basic principles of soil mechanics. Along with the thorough description of installation methods and equipment that is provided, the concepts used for design and quality control/quality assurance follow logically. The section on corrosion and life expectancy is particularly important now as applications of helical piles expand into greater use with permanent structures with longer intended service periods. Applications for helical piles are described which may prove novel to many engineers and open opportunities for innovation and development of more cost-effective solutions.

Target Audience

This 1hr introductory webinar will be suitable for Structural engineers, geotechnical engineers, technicians, and technologists. Civil engineers, public works and construction department employees of federal, provincial and municipal governments and engineers responsible for large industrial, commercial or institutional facilities who must deal with different types of foundations.

This webinar will be of interest to a wide range of practising civil engineers at different stages in their careers. Some familiarization with soil mechanics is desirable but the knowledge is not required at a specialist level.

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.
