COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Designing the Building
COURSE NO: S05-014
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Designing the Building
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides the design professional with sufficient background and examples for effectively designing a residential building proposed to be constructed in a coastal hazard area. The designer will find that engineering judgment will need to be applied to a range of issues which will arise during the design of a coastal residential building. This course describes the design process which involves the following:

  • Determining design loads
  • Determining the building’s foundation, structural frame, and envelope
  • Determining the connections between individual elements
  • Determining the elevation, placement, and support for utilities
  • Selecting the appropriate materials

 

In this course, the recommended design method is Allowable Stress Design (ASD), so there are factors of safety (FS) built into the development of the material stresses and the forces at the connections. This design method has been chosen for this manual because ASD continues to be the predominant design method in light-frame, residential, wood construction.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the design process
  • Determining site-specific loads
  • Applying loads to the building
  • Determining forces at connections and stresses in materials
  • Developing connections at each link
  • Selecting building materials
  • Designing for the building envelope
  • Designing for electrical and mechanical equipment
  • Designing for appurtenant structures

COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Designing the Foundation
COURSE NO: S04-017
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Designing the Foundation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on designing foundations, including selecting the appropriate materials, in coastal areas.

 

Design considerations for foundations in coastal environments are in many ways similar to those in inland areas. Like all foundations, coastal foundations must support gravity loads, resist uplift and lateral loads, and maintain lateral and vertical load path continuity from the elevated building to the soils below. Foundations in coastal areas are different in that they must generally resist higher winds, function in a corrosive environment, and withstand the environmental aspects that are unique to coastal areas, such as storm surges, rapidly moving floodwaters, wave action, and scour and erosion. These aspects can make coastal flooding more damaging than inland flooding.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with the different foundation styles
  • Learning the foundation design requirements and recommendations
  • Understanding pile foundations
  • Understanding the difference between open/deep, open/shallow and closed/shallow foundations
  • Learning about pier foundations

COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Determining Site-Specific Loads
COURSE NO: S05-013
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Determining Site-Specific Loads
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides the design professional and others with guidance on how to determine, by calculation or graphical interpretation, the magnitude of the loads placed on a building by a particular natural hazard event or a combination of events. The calculation methods presented in this course are intended to serve as the basis of a methodology for applying the calculated loads to the building during the design process.

 

All coastal residential buildings should be designed and constructed to prevent flotation, collapse, or lateral movement due to the effects of wind and water loads acting simultaneously. Throughout this course, the recommendations of the engineering standards ASCE 7-10, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 2010) will be followed unless otherwise noted. ASCE 7-10 includes procedures for calculating dead and live loads; loads due to soil pressure, fluids, wind, snow, atmospheric ice, and earthquake; and load combinations.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • The following site-specific loads for coastal buildings:
    • Dead Loads
    • Live Loads
    • Snow Loads
    • Flood Loads
    • Tsunami Loads
    • Wind Loads
    • Tornado Loads
    • Seismic Loads
       
  • Determining the combination loads for coastal buildings
