Conduits, Culverts and Pipes - Design and Installation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the design and construction of conduits, culverts, and pipes, as well as design procedures for trench/embankment earth loadings, highway loadings, railroad loadings, surface concentrated loadings, and internal/external fluid pressures.


In general, reinforced concrete conduits, culverts and pipes are used for dams, urban levees, and other levees where public safety is at risk or substantial property damage could occur. Corrugated metal pipes are acceptable through agricultural levees where conduits are 900-mm (36-in.) diameter and where levee embankments are not higher than 4 m (12 ft) above the conduit invert. Inlet structures, intake towers, gate wells, and outlet structures are usually concrete. However, corrugated metal structures may be used in agricultural and rural levees.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the design and installation of conduits, culverts and pipes.
