COURSE TITLE: Curing Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
COURSE NO: C05-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Curing Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on details of concrete curing practice as they pertain to construction of Portland cement concrete pavements. It is organized around the major events in curing pavements: curing immediately after placement (initial curing), curing during the period after final finishing (final curing), and termination of curing and evaluation of effectiveness of curing.

 

Curing has long been recognized as an important process in constructing durable concrete pavements. Proper curing allows the concrete to develop its potential strength and durability. Inadequate curing can result in surface damage in the form of plastic shrinkage cracking, spalling, and erosion of paste. Since many variables influence the choice of curing materials and when and how to apply curing, the material presented places particular emphasis on attention to details with respect to moisture retention and concrete temperature control.

 

This 5 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 concrete pavements.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Selection of curing materials and procedures
  • Analysis of concrete properties and jobsite conditions
  • Knowing how to adjust the curing practice to account for specific project conditions

Rational Method Hydrologic Calculations with Excel 2
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will enable you to calculate peak storm water runoff rate using the Rational Method equation in either U.S. or S.I. units, including determination of runoff coefficient, calculation of time of concentration, and determination of design rainfall intensity.  It will also prepare you for the use of Excel spreadsheets to efficiently make the calculations.

 

Calculation of peak storm water runoff rate from a drainage area is often done with the Rational Method equation (Q = CiA).  Use of Excel spreadsheets for calculations with this equation and for determination of the design rainfall intensity and the time of concentration of the drainage area, are included in this course.  The parameters in the equations are defined with typical units for both U.S. and S.I. units.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable primarily to civil engineers, hydraulic engineers, highway engineers, and environmental engineers, design professionals, technical and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the rational method hydrologic calculations using Excel.
