COURSE TITLE: Design and Construction Guidance for Breakaway Walls
COURSE NO: S03-021
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Design and Construction Guidance for Breakaway Walls
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course provides guidance on designing and constructing breakaway walls below elevated buildings located in coastal high hazard areas in accordance with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

 

Obstructions below an elevated building can significantly increase the potential for flood damage by increasing the surface area subject to wave impact and ve­locity flow. As such, NFIP regulations require that the area below the lowest floor of elevated buildings either be free of obstructions or have any enclosed areas be constructed of non-supporting break­away walls, open lattice-work, or insect screening. The walls, lattice, or screening are intended to collapse under wave loads without causing collapse, displacement, or other structural damage to the elevated building or the supporting founda­tion system.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved in coastal design and construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding NFIP regulations concerning breakaway walls
  • Learning about Flood Insurance Considerations affecting rates and costs of NFIP flood insurance for elevated buildings
  • Knowing the Performance of Breakaway Walls
  • Understanding the function of breakaway walls as well as their impact on other building elements
  • Learning about the three different design methods for breakaway walls
Course Document

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

COURSE TITLE: Hydrologic Analysis of Interior Areas
COURSE NO: C11-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Hydrologic Analysis of Interior Areas
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance in hydrologic analysis of interior areas for planning, design investigations, and flood risk reduction.

 

Floods have social, environmental, and economic consequences and they directly impact people and communities. Some of the immediate impacts of flooding includes loss of human life, loss of livestock, and damages to properties and crops.

 

This course provides information of interest to planners and designers of interior system involving flood loss reduction measures and actions. Interior area investigations are differentiated from other studies only by the uniqueness of the hydrologic analysis requirements for the flood loss reduction measures commonly used. Interior area planning studies are an essential aspects of feasibility studies.

 

This 11 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental, and stormwater management engineers as well as other technical personnel interested in learning more about hydrologic analysis of interior areas.

COURSE TITLE: Ethics in Professional Practice
COURSE NO: LE2-007
Ethics in Professional Practice
Course Highlights

In this online engineering PDH course, background on the philosophical models that guide ethical behavior is discussed and then applied to specific situations in engineering codes of ethics. This course is based on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Professional Practice Curriculum, Volume 8, Section: Engineering Ethics.

 

Many engineering organizations have drafted codes of ethics to which their members are required to commit.  Generally, these codes are quite similar and are based on a few fundamental principles which provide guidance to professional engineers in common situations. Nevertheless, there are many difficult or ambiguous situations in which the best ethical solution is difficult to determine.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended primarily for engineers seeking to learn ethical principles and how to apply them to their professional practice.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Determining ethical behavior using several philosophical models
  • Evaluating a practical situation in terms of a professional code of ethics
  • Identifying situations that represent conflicts of interest and formulate a proper response
  • Applying the standards of professional ethics in technical communication
  • Recognizing environmental impacts of engineering work
  • Considering principles of sustainable development in the performance of professional duties
