Short Courses

Short Courses are an excellent training opportunity to learn about new technologies, innovations and practical applications used in today’s tunneling and underground construction industry.

The course fee includes course materials, coffee breaks, lunch and and PDH certificate with transcript.

Course location: Dallas Convention Center

Shotcrete in Underground Construction

Sunday, June 19, 2022 | 9:00 am – 4:30 pm | Salon B, Level 5
Member $400 | Nonmember $510

Safe and efficient open excavations are critical parts of underground construction projects. Support of excavation (SOE) design impacts many aspects of the project. Combining the technical aspects, practical considerations, and meeting the project contractual requirements to achieve this goal is not an easy task.

This course provides a road map for choosing and designing the appropriate SOE system that is right for your project. It also provides design methodology and details with some examples. In addition, SOE performance is a critical part of the design to protect existing structures, both above and underground. You will learn about optimizing the SOE performance to protect exiting structures and meeting third-party requirements. This course is a must for geotechnical and structural engineers specializing in the design of underground construction projects.
