Join us for the final webinar in our 2022 series.
Mitigating Seismic Hazards with Deep Soil Mixing
Deep soil mixing (DSM) is an increasingly popular ground improvement technique to provide foundation support for structures and to mitigate seismic hazards. DSM is a powerful method thanks to its ability to treat nearly all soils and its flexibility to form different geometric shapes. This presentation will provide an overview of the DSM construction method and typical QA/QC measures. Case histories will be used to illustrate the design and construction of DSM to mitigate seismic hazards including surface fault rupture, liquefaction and lateral spreading. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how DSM can be employed to solve challenging earthquake engineering problems.
Attendees will receive 1 PDH credit.
