About the Author

Howard A. Perko, PhD, PE, has sixteen years of consulting engineering experience, is an instructor at Colorado State University, and the Director of Engineering for Magnum Geo Solutions, LLC. Dr. Perko has been active in the Helical Foundations and Tiebacks Committee of the Deep Foundations Institute since 2002, serving as its Chairman since 2008. He is also a member of the editorial advisory board for helicalpierworld.com.

More About the Author

Dr. Perko has 15 years of engineering experience and holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering with Geotechnical/Foundation Engineering specialization. He is a licensed professional engineer in 20 states and his project experience includes foundation designs, slope stabilization, excavation shoring, earth retention, and underpinning. Most of his experience has been with CTL|Thompson,, a 300 person consulting firm headquartered in Denver, Colorado, where he served as a member of the management committee. He currently serves on the board of directors for Magnum Geo-Solutions, LLC, the engineering and technical support group associated with Magnum Piering, Inc.

Many years ago, his father, Ed Perko, told him to find a niche. During his tenure at CTL|Thompson, Howard started getting involved in projects involving helical piles and thought this would be an interesting niche. He spent the next ten years learning as much as he could and eventually became the chairman of the Deep Foundation Institute committee on Helical Foundations. Frustrated that the only literature available on the topic was in manufacturer's catalogs, Dr. Perko decided a book on the topic was needed. You can read more about the book and Dr. Perko on the official book website, www.helicalpilebook.com.

I must congratulate Howard Perko on his recent publication. In my opinion, it is the first publication that covers all aspects of helical steel screw piles in a manner that is straight forward, practical and based on experience but at the same time carries the academic creditability of a reference book.
During the course of ten year business specialising in screw piles in New Zealand we have completed over 350 static compression load tests and a similar number of tension tests. Howard Perko's book generally supports most of the design criteria, test results and installation methods we have tried and tested. This book goes a long way to elevating helical screw piles to an internationally recognised main line piling system.

Howard Perko does a great job in his book with mixing experience,along with common sense,into his approach on helical piles.The pictures are a great addition as they tend to tell the info he is trying to convey. This book is also loaded with great refrences.Great job Howard.

Any engineer, contractor or project owner considering helical piles as a deep foundation would be well served to purchase this book. The author's writing style makes this an easy read whether you are new to helicals or have been using/designing with them for years. Highly recommended!

Text is well written, concise and though. Good examples and practical use. Uses "LPILE" extensively which most CEs are familar with and have the software.
