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".

Slope Stability
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock.

 

Slope stability criteria are presented for strength tests, analysis conditions, and factors of safety. The criteria are intended to be used with methods of stability analysis that satisfy all conditions of equilibrium. Methods that do not satisfy all conditions of equilibrium may involve significant inaccuracies and should be used only under the restricted conditions described herein.

COURSE TITLE: Emergency Action Planning for Dam Safety
COURSE NO: C04-054
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Emergency Action Planning for Dam Safety
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH covers the basic guidelines and definitions regarding Emergency  Action Plans (EAP) for dams.

 

To improve the Nation’s emergency preparedness and response capabilities, FEMA believes that formal guidelines are needed to help dam owners, in coordination with emergency management authorities, effectively develop and exercise Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) for dams. The purpose of the guidance in this course is to meet that need.

 

The EAP guidelines in this course are focused on developing or revising EAPs for dams that would likely cause loss of life or significant property damage as a result of a failure or other life-threatening incident. The areas downstream of each dam are unique. Therefore, the extent and degree of potential impacts of each dam vary.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and civil engineers, as well as other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding in preparing and/or handling emergency action plans for dam safety.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the purpose, scope, coordination requirements, evacuation responsibilities, and maintenance of the EAP
  • Familiarizing with the outline and contents of an EAP
  • Understanding EAP responsibilities, notification flowcharts, response processes, and preparedness
  • Learning about inundation maps
  • Familiarizing with the notification flowchart, high flow notification table, and inundation map thru various examples
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety Emergency Action Planning for Dams" by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), publication FEMA 64, dated July 2013.
