COURSE TITLE: Bearing Capacity of Soils
COURSE NO: G10-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Bearing Capacity of Soils
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the guidelines for calculation of the bearing capacity of soil under shallow and deep foundations supporting various types of structures such as buildings and houses, towers and storage tanks, fills, embankments and dams. These guidelines may be helpful in determining soils that will lead to bearing capacity failure or excessive settlements for given foundations and loads.

 

Bearing capacity is the ability of soil to safely carry the pressure placed on the soil from any engineered structure without undergoing a shear failure with accompanying large settlements. Applying a bearing pressure which is safe with respect to failure does not ensure that settlement of the foundation will be within acceptable limits. Therefore, settlement analysis should generally be performed since most structures are sensitive to excessive settlement.

 

This 10 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel who are involved with foundation investigation and design.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the failure modes and other factors that influence the bearing capacity
  • Knowing the non-load related design considerations due to environmental and geotechnical conditions
  • Familiarizing with the laboratory and in situ methods of determining soil parameters required for analysis of bearing capacity
  • Analyzing  the bearing capacity of shallow and deep foundations
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-1905, "Bearing Capacity of Soils".

COURSE TITLE: Earthquake Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities
COURSE NO: C02-076
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Earthquake Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how water and wastewater utilities can be more resilient to earthquakes. It provides the best practices from utilities that have used mitigation measures to address the earthquake threat.

 

An earthquake is a sudden and violent shaking of the ground caused by movement within the earth’s crust or by volcanic activity. The water sector is particularly vulnerable to earthquake damage and service disruptions. By understanding the threat of earthquakes and the potential impacts to both the water infrastructure and the community, water utility owners and operators can make more informed decisions on earthquake mitigation options.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to environmental, civil, and structural engineers as well as others interested in learning more about how wastewater utilities can be more resilient to earthquakes.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the earthquake threat
  • Knowing how to Identify vulnerable assets and determine consequences
  • Learning how to pursue mitigation and funding options
  • Familiarizing with the available tools to assess specific structures
  • Familiarizing with the standards and resources for earthquake resilience
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Earthquake Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities” which is based on the U.S. EPA publication number EPA-810-B-18-001 dated March 2018.

COURSE TITLE: Trenching and Excavation Safety
COURSE NO: C02-072
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Trenching and Excavation Safety
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the requirements for excavation and trenching operations. This course describes safe work practices that can protect workers from cave-ins and other hazards.

 

Trenching and excavation work presents serious hazards to all workers involved. Cave-ins pose the greatest risk and are more likely than some other excavation-related incidents to result in worker fatalities. One cubic yard of soil can weigh as much as a car. An unprotected trench can be an early grave. Employers must ensure that workers enter trenches only after adequate protections are in place to address cave-in hazards.  Other potential hazards associated with trenching work include falling loads, hazardous atmospheres and hazards from mobile equipment. Following the requirements of OSHA Excavation standards will prevent or greatly reduce the risk of cave-ins and other excavation-related incidents.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for employers/business owners, engineers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel working on construction projects involving trenching and excavation safety.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the different risks and dangers of trenching and excavation operations
  • Understanding the OSHA Excavation standards and how they protect workers
  • Pre-planning excavation work
  • Learning the basics of protective systems
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Trenching and Excavation Safety” prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA 2226-10R 2015.

COURSE TITLE: Tunnel Operations, Maintenance, Inspection, and Evaluation Manual: Evaluation
COURSE NO: C02-073
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Tunnel Operations, Maintenance, Inspection, and Evaluation Manual: Evaluation
Course Highlights

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.

Learning Objectives

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
