Structural Design of Concrete Lined Flood Control Channels

COURSE NO: S03-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Structural Design of Concrete Lined Flood Control Channels
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the design of reinforced, concrete lined flood control trapezoidal and rectangular channels which convey rapid and tranquil storm water flows to prevent flooding. This course also presents provisions for coordinating the disciplines involved in the design of channels, selecting channel type, and identifying the critical aspects of designs which require quality assurance inspection during construction.


Channel design involves determining the overall channel configuration including appurtenant structures, designing reinforced concrete structures and pavement or concrete lining, determining type and location of joints, designing sub-drainage systems, and designing appropriate safety features.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning and design of concrete lined flood control channels.
