Structural Design of Concrete Lined Flood Control Channels
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning the different types of trapezoidal and rectangular channels
- Selecting the appropriate channel type
- Learning the different types of retaining wall structures
- Learning the different types of structural joints and anchorages
- Understanding the constructability of paving slabs on sloped sides of channels
- Understanding the constructability of the drainage layer
- Maintaining and protecting channel structures
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-2007, "Structural Design of Concrete Lined Flood Control Channels".
