Design of Debris Control Countermeasures for Culvert and Bridge Structures

COURSE NO: C09-003
PDH CREDIT: 9
Design of Debris Control Countermeasures for Culvert and Bridge Structures
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on designing debris control countermeasures for culvert and bridge structures.

 

This course will present evaluation procedures that can be used to estimate the debris potential for a site. Structural and non-structural countermeasures will be discussed in detail. The various effects on the hydraulic elements of channels and structures as a result of debris accumulation will also be discussed. Several photographs of debris countermeasures are included in the text to familiarize the student with their use in field conditions. Several example problems are included in the text to familiarize the student with the course material.

 

This 9 PDH  online course is applicable to civil, geotechnical, transportation and environmental engineers, as well as LEED design professionals, land developers, and anyone interested in the evaluating and providing countermeasures for debris at culvert and bridge structures.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Defining the various sizes of Detritus
  • Estimating potential debris delivery
  • Determining the drag force as a result of debris accumulation
  • Understanding the potential for debris accumulation in the floodplain
  • Differentiating between Class A, B, C, and D flows
  • Characterizing debris
  • Estimating debris quantities
  • Analyzing debris impacts to structures
  • Familiarizing with debris countermeasures
  • Understanding the maintenance of bridge and culvert structures with debris accumulation
