COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Determining Site-Specific Loads
COURSE NO: S05-013
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Determining Site-Specific Loads
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides the design professional and others with guidance on how to determine, by calculation or graphical interpretation, the magnitude of the loads placed on a building by a particular natural hazard event or a combination of events. The calculation methods presented in this course are intended to serve as the basis of a methodology for applying the calculated loads to the building during the design process.

 

All coastal residential buildings should be designed and constructed to prevent flotation, collapse, or lateral movement due to the effects of wind and water loads acting simultaneously. Throughout this course, the recommendations of the engineering standards ASCE 7-10, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 2010) will be followed unless otherwise noted. ASCE 7-10 includes procedures for calculating dead and live loads; loads due to soil pressure, fluids, wind, snow, atmospheric ice, and earthquake; and load combinations.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • The following site-specific loads for coastal buildings:
    • Dead Loads
    • Live Loads
    • Snow Loads
    • Flood Loads
    • Tsunami Loads
    • Wind Loads

COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Designing the Building
COURSE NO: S05-014
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Designing the Building
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides the design professional with sufficient background and examples for effectively designing a residential building proposed to be constructed in a coastal hazard area. The designer will find that engineering judgment will need to be applied to a range of issues which will arise during the design of a coastal residential building. This course describes the design process which involves the following:

  • Determining design loads
  • Determining the building’s foundation, structural frame, and envelope
  • Determining the connections between individual elements
  • Determining the elevation, placement, and support for utilities
  • Selecting the appropriate materials

 

In this course, the recommended design method is Allowable Stress Design (ASD), so there are factors of safety (FS) built into the development of the material stresses and the forces at the connections. This design method has been chosen for this manual because ASD continues to be the predominant design method in light-frame, residential, wood construction.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the design process
  • Determining site-specific loads
  • Applying loads to the building
  • Determining forces at connections and stresses in materials
  • Developing connections at each link
  • Selecting building materials
  • Designing for the building envelope
  • Designing for electrical and mechanical equipment
  • Designing for appurtenant structures
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 9, "Designing the Building" of the Coastal Construction Manual, published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Publication FEMA 55, Volume II.

COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Constructing the Building
COURSE NO: S04-016
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Constructing the Building
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses constructing buildings, including foundation, framing, building envelop, and electrical and mechanical equipment, in coastal areas. Individual sections cover construction items that will probably require the most care or attention on the part of the builder in order for the design intent to be achieved. Builders may find that the permitting and inspection procedures in coastal areas are more involved than those in inland areas. Not only must all Federal, state, and local Coastal Zone Management and other regulatory requirements be met, the design plans and specifications may need to be sealed by a design professional.

 

Construction of residential buildings in coastal zones presents challenges to the builder not usually found in more inland locations. For all coastal residential buildings, these challenges may include the following:

  • Connection details require additional inspections
  • The need for careful surveying to place the building within property line setbacks and above The Design Flood Elevation (DFE)
  • The additional care required to ensure that all elements of the building will withstand the large forces associated with high wind speeds and coastal flooding
  • The additional care that must be taken in constructing a building envelope that will withstand the intrusion of air and moisture under the effects of high wind speeds
  • The difficulty of providing durable exterior construction in a moist, sometimes salt-laden, environment
  • The requirement to protect and, usually, place utilities above the DFE

 

In constructing coastal residential buildings on elevated pile foundations, builders face additional challenges:

  • The difficulty of constructing a driven pile foundation to accepted construction plan tolerances
  • The difficulty of building on an elevated post-and-beam foundation, compared to building on continuous wall foundations

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to structural engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Constructing the foundation
  • Framing the main structure
  • Constructing the building envelope
  • Constructing the appurtenant structures
  • Installing electrical and mechanical equipment
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 13, "Constructing the Building" of the Coastal Construction Manual, published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Publication FEMA 55, Volume II.

Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the laws and rules of ethics and professional responsibility governing the practice of engineering in the State of Maryland. Excerpts from Title 14 of the Maryland Codes and Title 9, Subtitle 23 of the Maryland Regulations which relate to the rules of profession conduct, continuing education requirements, proper use of seal and other pertinent regulatory provisions are presented in this course.

 

Engineering ethics is (1) the study of moral issues and decisions confronting individuals and organizations involved in engineering and (2) the study of related questions about moral conduct, character, ideals and relationships of peoples and organizations involved in technological development (Martin and Schinzinger, Ethics in Engineering).

 

Since engineers are faced with frequent moral and ethical dilemmas while practicing their engineering profession, this course will provide you with moral and ethical guidance in your decision making process. Most importantly, it will provide you with insight on how to conduct, respect and protect your engineering practice with the utmost professionalism.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to Professional Engineers licensed in the State of Maryland and who are required to demonstrate continuing professional competency in engineering ethics as a condition of their license renewal. For each renewal period, every licensee must complete sixteen (16) professional development hours, at least one of which must be relative to the rules of professional responsibility, conduct and ethics.
Learning Objectives
