Sonic Technology for Geotechnical Tieback Anchors
Bill Poupis, VP of Operations, and Shawn Miller, Operations Manager
Join us for a discussion around the installation of Tieback Anchors and how sonic technology enhances the process. Tieback Anchors are construction element that serve as a solution to aging infrastructure instead of complete re-construction. They actively apply tensile forces to existing structures and can be used as part of new construction, or to remediation existing structures. Tieback Anchors can be constructed out of strands of cable, or reinforcing bar grouted into the soil.
Presenters Bill Poupis and Shawn Miller with Aquifer Drilling & Testing, a Cascade Company, will be highlighting a recent project were sonic technology was chosen over conventional technologies. They will discuss the process of installing Tieback Anchors as well as how sonic technology enhances the process on such projects.
