Virtual Event
Oct 27, 2021

Join Keller for the third webinar in our series highlighting our solutions to a wide range of geotechnical challenges.

About this event

This webinar will focus on liquefaction mitigation. Liquefaction is a common problem in earthquake-prone areas where soils lose strength due to the ground motion and behave like a viscous liquid, damaging overlying structures.

Learning objectives

  • Basic mechanisms of liquefaction
  • Engineering implications of liquefaction
  • How ground improvement counters liquefaction

Attendees will receive 1 PDH credit.  PDH Online
