COURSE TITLE: Groundwater Hydrology
COURSE NO: C09-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Groundwater Hydrology
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of the occurrence and movement of groundwater. Procedures for planning and managing a site characterization and modeling study are then presented. This is followed by chapters addressing the technical aspects of field investigative methods and computer modeling. A final chapter discussing the interaction of groundwater and surface water is then presented.

 

Since it is not possible to provide specific instructions and/or specific procedures that are universally applicable to every situation that may be encountered, this course emphasizes the use of sound judgment and the development of a good understanding of basic groundwater concepts rather than providing specific guidelines.

 

This 9 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the study and analysis of groundwater flow.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Occurrence and movement of groundwater
  • Planning a groundwater investigation and modeling study
  • Field investigative methods
  • Computer modeling of groundwater flow
  • Interaction between surface water and groundwater
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1421, "Groundwater Hydrology".

COURSE TITLE: Rational Method Hydrologic Calculations with Excel 2
COURSE NO: C01-010
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.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Knowing the parameters and their U.S. and S.I. units to be used in the Rational Method equation
  • Ability to calculate peak storm water runoff rate with the Rational Method equation, using either U.S. or S.I. units
  • Ability to place a given soil into one of the four SCS soil groups based on its measured minimum infiltration rate
  • Ability to place a given soil into one of the four SCS soil groups based on its description
  • Ability to determine a value of the Rational Method runoff coefficient based on land use, soil group, and slope of the watershed
  • Ability to calculate the overland sheet flow travel time for a watershed using the Manning Kinematic equation
  • Ability to calculate the shallow concentrated flow travel time for a watershed using the NRCS method
  • Ability to calculate the open channel flow travel time for a watershed using the Manning equation
  • Knowing the form of the equation used for rainfall intensity as a function of storm duration for a specified return period
  • Familiarity with methods for using Excel spreadsheets to make the different types of calculations
