NJB: Drilled Shaft Design and Construction: Full-Day Geotech Seminar

  • Snuffy's (Pantagis Restaurant) Scotch Plains, NJ (map)

Presented by John Turner, Ph.D., PE - Dan Brown and Associates

This program is pending approval for up to 6 PDHs.


John Turner is a co-author of the 2010 LRFD FHWA manual “Drilled Shafts: Construction Procedures and LRFD Design Methods” and the author of NCHRP Synthesis 360, “Rock Socketed Shafts for Highway Foundations” and is currently a Senior Principle with Dan Brown and Associates. Dr. Turner will be joining the Geotechnical Technical Group to present on the analysis and design of drilled shafts as well as the techniques used for drilled shaft construction. The presentation will provide an introduction to LRFD design of drilled shafts, including an overall approach to the design of drilled shafts using LRFD methodology; methods for computing axial resistance; and design for lateral loading. Additionally, the presentation will provide an introduction to drilled shaft construction, including dry, wet and cased methods; and recent development in construction techniques. The purpose of this course is to teach the fundamental concepts of drilled shaft design and construction techniques and is intended for geotechnical engineers, foundation engineers, engineering geologists, structural engineers, civil engineers, and construction professionals.
