Abstract: Proceedings of Geo-Denver 2007, New Peaks in Geotechnics, held in Denver, Colorado, February 18-21, 2007. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 40 papers on various types of deep foundations. The field of deep foundations is one of the oldest and broadest topics in geotechnical engineering, yet one that continues to evolve new and innovative technologies for economical solutions to challenging ground conditions. Topics include: drilled shafts; concrete cylinder piles; micro-piles; auger-cast piles; steel pipe piles; and recent advances in design, analysis, modeling, construction, testing and performance of these deep foundation systems.
