State Workshop
Geologic and Geotechnical Investigation and Analysis for dams in the PNW - A Workshop for Engineers and Geologists.

Location:

Portland, OR

Date:

03/03/2020 - 03/04/2020

Description:

Geologic and Geotechnical Investigation and Analysis for Dams in the PNW - A Workshop for Engineers and Geologists will focus on soils, rock, and seismic conditions typical for the Pacific Northwest including internal erosion potential of soils; Cascadia subduction zone and local crustal earthquakes; and landslide hazards.

Participants will come away with an understanding of site investigation, geologic interpretation and geotechnical analyses appropriate for different dam settings. Speakers will discuss recognition of risk factors using original designs, inspections, and analyses. The workshop will look more specifically at how to understand geotechnical investigation and analysis, as well as communication between geotechnical professionals and other engineers.

This workshop is geared towards dam safety engineers; geotechnical engineers; engineering geologists; and engineers working in dam design or rehabilitation. Audience participation will be encouraged.
