  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Maggiano's Little Italy - Northpark Center


Registration is closed

Differential movement of a structure results in some type of distress, with the magnitude of distress proportional to the angular distortion.  The potential for differential movement in expansive soils is commonly referred to as potential for vertical movement or rise. 

Unfortunately, PVR is both a concept and a specific procedure.  The purpose of this presentation will be to evaluate what PVR is and what it is not, and how the unknowns associated with the estimate impact decisions on design.  Case studies will be included.  


Meals are served family style on the table.  We will start networking at 11:30 a.m., start the meal at 11:45 a.m., and the presentation will be from 12 to 1 p.m.

We will be meeting at Maggiano's Little Italy at Northpark Center (on the Northwest Highway side, next to Dillards.)  Valet parking is included in your meeting registration, or self-park anywhere at the mall.
