Tunnel Operations, Maintenance, Inspection, and Evaluation Manual: Evaluation
This engineering online PDH course will provide an overview on the evaluation of tunnel systems and the associated components. The components explored in this chapter include the typical personnel involved, supplemental inspection and testing methods, risk-based assessments, priority classification, and basic cost estimating. Information is also provided on load rating.
Evaluations are normally performed after the inspection data is received. Sound engineering judgment is used to evaluate the consequences of tunnel system or component failure in terms of overall safety, service level, and costs. In some instances, supplementary inspections and testing may be needed where data is lacking. Risk assessment techniques should include strategies for deploying, operating, maintaining, upgrading, and disposing of tunnel system components in a cost-effective manner.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil and structural engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the evaluation process of tunnel systems.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the evaluation criteria and methods of tunnel systems
- Identifying the typical personnel involved in tunnel evaluation procedures
- Familiarization with different testing methods
- Understanding risk-based assessments
- Recognizing priority classification
- Understanding the basics of cost estimating
