COURSE TITLE: Low Impact Development Design Strategies
COURSE NO: C07-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Low Impact Development Design Strategies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the wide array of impact reduction and site design techniques that allow engineers and planners to create stormwater control mechanisms that function in a manner similar to that of natural control mechanisms.

 

The low-impact development (LID) approach combines a hydrologically functional site design with pollution prevention measures to compensate for land development impacts on hydrology and water quality. The primary goal of Low Impact Development methods is to mimic the predevelopment site hydrology by using site design techniques that store, infiltrate, evaporate, and detain runoff. Use of these techniques helps to reduce off-site runoff and ensure adequate groundwater recharge. Since every aspect of site development affects the hydrologic response of the site, LID control techniques focus mainly on site hydrology.

 

This 7 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers and planners as well as construction professionals who are interested in learning about low impact development design techniques and their applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding low-impact development goals
  • Understanding low-impact development site planning
  • Understanding low-impact development hydrologic analysis
  • Understanding low-impact development integrated management
  • Understanding erosion and sediment control considerations for low-impact development

COURSE TITLE: Roller Compacted Concrete
COURSE NO: S08-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Roller Compacted Concrete
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information and guidance on the use of RCC in dams and other civil works structures. Elements discussed include investigation and selection of materials, mixture proportioning, design and construction considerations, construction equipment and techniques, inspection, and performance.

 

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) defines roller-compacted concrete (RCC) as "concrete compacted by roller compaction; concrete that, in its unhardened state, will support a roller while being compacted." Properties of hardened RCC can be similar to those of conventionally placed concrete. However, RCC can also be made with hardened properties that are outside the range of typical properties of conventionally placed concrete. The term "roller compaction" is also defined by ACI as "a process for compacting concrete using a roller, often a vibrating roller."

 

RCC may be considered for application where no-slump concrete can be transported, placed, and compacted using earth and rock-fill construction equipment. Ideal RCC projects will involve large placement areas, little or no reinforcement, and little or no embedded metal work or other discontinuities such as piles. Application of RCC should be considered when it is economically competitive with other construction methods. It may be considered in lieu of gabions or riprap for bank protection, especially in those areas where riprap is scarce. It may be considered for large work pads, aprons, or paved areas, massive open foundations, base slabs, cofferdams, massive backfill, emergency repairs, and overtopping protection for  embankment dams. It may be used in lieu of conventionally placed concrete in concrete gravity and arch-gravity dams. RCC may be considered for use in levees where foundations are adequate and may also be used in caps for jetties to reduce the amount of required rock.

 

This 8 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design, construction of roller-compacted concrete structures.

Learning Objectives

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

  • RCC applications, objectives and advantages
  • Investigation and selection of materials
  • Mixture proportioning considerations and selection
  • Understanding the properties of RCC
  • Design and construction considerations
  • Construction methods and equipment
  • Quality control and quality assurance in RCC construction
  • RCC performance
