Presented by Dr. Shailendra Endley of PSI

The lecture includes several topics; bearing capacity, settlement, pile performance and expansive soils where the limitations and accuracy of recommendations are not properly communicated to the structural engineer. This may lead to both improper design and unpleasant situations. An attempt is made to bring light to these situations and ways they can be avoided.
