What to Expect

Nine of DFI’s technical committees will combine their industry expertise to organize SuperPile 2015. This two-day conference will include presentations on the latest developments in Driven Piles, Augered Cast-in-Place/Drilled Displacement Piles, Micropiles, Marine Foundations, Testing and Evaluation of Foundation Systems, Seismic and Lateral Loads, Drilled Shafts, Ground Improvement and Helical Piles and Tiebacks. DFI’s Technical Committees will meet prior to the conference. Day One will be a plenary (combined) session and Day Two will have two parallel (concurrent) sessions providing attendees the option to choose presentations of interest.

Invited and selected presentations will highlight exceptional performance and design of high capacity deep foundations elements based on increased allowable stresses, resistance factors and code provisions, and discussions will address the challenges presented by such innovative solutions and applications. Local, national, and international case histories will supplement presentations on design and construction, new technologies and ideas for future advancements and developments. Panel discussions on interesting topics will provide attendees opportunities to share new ideas and industry experience.

Equipment, material and instrumentation suppliers, contractors, engineers, and other vendors will present their services in our Exhibit Hall.

Who Should Attend

The conference will gather design professionals, engineers, contractors, researchers, material and equipment suppliers, and government agencies involved in the design, construction and research of piling solutions for foundations, excavation support and slope stabilization.
