What will you learn in this industry report?

Earthquake-resistant buildings are more important in the United States than ever before. As more regions face the danger of seismic activity, engineers are increasingly interested in better foundations for seismically-active regions.
If you're building in places like California, Alaska, the Central U.S., or beyond, you owe it to your project to read this report.

    The seismic forces involved in an earthquake and the effects they can have on deep foundations

    How "seismic waves" work and what makes some of them hyper-destructive while others create minimal effects

    What "soil liquefaction" is, how it works, and why it can create enormous amounts of destruction during an earthquake

    Failure modes of deep foundation piles when subjected to soil liquefaction

    Helical pier performance during seismic activity and soil liquefaction - from both an experimental perspective and real-world evidence

    What the science is saying about helical piers, earthquakes, and the future of foundations for seismically-prone regions of the United States
