COURSE TITLE: Design and Construction of Earth and Rock-Fill Dams
COURSE NO: G07-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Design and Construction of Earth and Rock-Fill Dams
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the fundamental principles underlying the design, construction, performance monitoring and modifications of earth and rock-fill dams. The design and construction of earth and rock-fill dams are complex because of the nature of the varying foundation conditions and range of properties of the materials available for use in the embankment.

 

The successful design, construction, and operation of a reservoir project over the full range of loading require a comprehensive site characterization, a detailed design of each feature, construction supervision, measurement and monitoring of the performance, and the continuous evaluation of the project features during operation.

 

This 7 PDH  online course is applicable to geotechnical and structural engineers, geologists, design and construction personnel who are involved with the design and construction of earth and rock-fill dams.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Geological and subsurface explorations
  • General design considerations and performance parameters
  • Foundation and abutment preparation
  • Seepage control methods
  • Design of embankments and appurtenant structures
  • General construction considerations
