Micropiles for Railroad Structures

Innovative solutions to difficult railway subsurface conditions have been needed since the golden spike was driven in Utah.  Many solutions that are used routinely still have not had wide spread acceptance in AREMA Guideline.  The intent of this webinar is to provide practitioners with innovative solutions and some explanation in their use on North American RR.  The presentation will provide some design guidelines, however, is not considered a design course.  You will receive 1.0 PDH for attending this webinar.
