The Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) Practical Deep Foundation Design and Construction for Seismic and Lateral Loads Seminar will be on August 6, 2015, in Los Angeles, CA. On August 5, there will be an opportunity to network with speakers at a reception in the exhibit area.

The DFI seminar will focus on state of the practice in analysis, design, construction and testing of deep foundations subject to seismic and lateral loads. Industry leaders will overview the design approaches and challenges of seismic and lateral load design, address performance-based design for foundations in liquefiable and non-liquefiable soils, discuss practical soil-structure interaction solutions, and present case histories that highlight the use of conventional software packages and emphasize constructibility issues for deep foundations subject to lateral and seismic loads.
