Measured and computer max moments

 

Dr. Harry Poulos, who just received the American Society of Civil Engineers Lifetime Achievement in Design Award, presents a simplified approach to deep foundation design in seismic areas by which the practical foundation designer can undertake the relevant calculations to satisfy requirements. 

The paper specifically addresses design issues, pile design for axial and lateral loading (with and without liquefaction), and measures to mitigate against liquefaction effects.
