Geotechnical-Structural Interaction Seminar
This half-day seminar is your opportunity to learn from Geotechnical and Structural engineers how their interaction affects the designs for both professions. Presentations will cover a variety of foundation systems and how they are selected and evaluated; supportive excavation and the iterative designs between geotechnical and structural engineers; and some newer foundation systems that are a part of the modern built environment.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 11, 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Kostas Research Institute, Northeastern Univ., Burlington MA
PDHs: 4.0 SEAMASS or 4.0 NCSEA Diamond-Certified PDHs


Presentation 1:
Structural Engineer & Geotechnical Engineer, Working Together
The design of support of excavation is one of many challenges where a back-and- forth between two engineers is necessary to ensure safety and stability at the heart of a building structure.
Bill Walton, PE, SE, F.ASCE, D.GE | Senior Vice President, GEI Consultants
Michael Flynn, PE | Project Manager, GEI Consultants

Presentation 2:
Foundation Selection 101
This presentation will provide a high-level overview of various foundation systems and highlight the typical subsurface conditions (geology) in the Boston basin and how they affect foundation selection and design.
Presenter:  Damian Siebert, PE | Geotechnical Discipline Leader, Haley & Aldrich

Presentation 3:
The State of the Art in Geotechnical Engineering
Loading to new heights, pushing the capacities of foundation elements. The presentation will include the use of high capacity micropiles, latest trends in ground improvement, and the implications on the allowable capacity of the changes in the Building Code allowable material stresses on driven piles.
Presenter:  Kelvin Wong, PE | Project Manager, Haley & Aldrich

Presentation 4:
Seismic Design & Building Code Updates for 9th Edition
Seismic design loading is unique in that it comes from the ground up. Learn the intricacies of the geotechnical impacts from seismic design along with code updates to the 9th Edition Mass Code.
Presenter: Jean Louis Locsin, Ph.D, PE | Senior Technical Specialist, Haley & Aldrich
