DFI to present S3: Slope-Support-Stabilization Seminar in Minneapolis

March 20th, 2019 / By: / Events

Registration is open for the Deep Foundation Institute’s (DFI’s) S3: Slope-Support-Stabilization seminar, Aug. 6–9, 2020, at The Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, Minn.

This two-day technical seminar, organized by eight DFI Technical Committees, focuses on the effective application of deep foundations, ground improvement and soil mixing for stabilization of slopes and excavation support. The state-of-the-practice technical program features presentations on design concepts; research; and case histories for challenging slope and landslide repairs, excavation support and slope stabilization projects using deep foundation and ground improvement methods.

The seminar also features a 90-minute panel discussion and live webinar on the effective use of software for analyzing slope and landslide stabilization projects, being facilitated by Chris Ramsey, P.E., of Wood Environment and Infrastructure Solutions and chair of DFI’s Deep Foundations for Landslide and Slope Stabilization Committee. Providers of commonly used software packages will discuss, analyze and present solutions for the same real-world slope stabilization problem, discuss how the software was used to prepare various solutions, and provide tips on using packages to produce and validate solutions.

The event includes an exhibit area where up to 30 DFI member companies are exhibiting innovative products and services.

In conjunction with the seminar, the DFI Women in Deep Foundations Committee is hosting a baseball game fund-raiser at Target Field for the Minnesota Twins vs. Atlanta Braves game on Tuesday, August 6, at 7:10 p.m. Tickets can be purchased during conference registration.
