Lunch & Learns in West Virginia


While helical piles have been used for over 175 years and remain one of the most versatile deep foundation systems available, they don’t get thorough coverage in undergraduate and graduate studies for engineers. After helical piles were inducted into the 2009 IBC, many engineers found themselves scrambling to understand the system and applications.

As leaders in the industry, Ram Jack offers free opportunities for engineers to find out more about our helical and driven pile systems. A majority of states accept the technical presentation at our Lunch & Learns as Continuing Education credits for those who attend.

What We Cover

  • Driven & Helical Pile Systems
    During the presentation, the components, advantages, and applications of our systems will be reviewed.

  • Theory & Design
    We discuss the engineering principles of our systems for improved comprehension.

  • ICC Acceptance Criteria
    In 2007, ICC approved the first ever helical pile acceptance criterion (AC358), later adding helical piles to the 2009 IBC. We review the requirements of the AC358, as well as the need for an Evaluation Service Report (ESR) by ICC to verify a pile’s capacities and compliance.

  • IBC 2009-2015
    The main helical pile sections in the IBC are reviewed, many of which relate to similar deep foundation systems. We will discuss stability requirements, lateral loads, unbraced length, group effect, and much more.

  • Design Software
    We offer free helical pile design software that was designed by engineers with engineers in mind. We review the benefits, what you can do with the software, and solutions it provides to both you and your firm.
