On-Demand: Session 4- Micropiles: A Foundation Alternative for Challenging Conditions
Now Available On-Demand!
Abstract: FREE Webinar: Investment in high-voltage transmission has dramatically increased in recent years due to the growing demand for power, increased reliability standards, and the integration of renewable energy sources. Micropile foundations — because of their ability to be installed using compact, portable equipment — provide a viable alternative to more traditional foundation designs when preferred alignments traverse rugged or protected terrain where standard modes of access are not practical or possible. Micropiles are lightweight, high-capacity elements that are readily adaptable to site-specific ground conditions and tower loads. Crux Subsurface will share the development and application of this innovative foundation alternative, and discuss the contribution that micropiles have made to foundation design optimization in the industry. Crux will discuss the next steps for furthering design optimization through a multi-disciplinary engineering focus and construction methods that allow for foundation selection based on individual site conditions.
