COURSE NO: G02-003
An Introduction to Pile Foundations for Structures
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course is an introduction to data, principles, and methods for use in planning, design, and construction of deep foundations. Deep foundations are braced column elements (piles) transmitting structure loads down to the subgrade supporting medium. This course provides an introduction and general information with respect to the selection and design of deep foundations. Single and groups of driven piles and drilled shafts under axial and lateral static loads are treated.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil, structural and geotechnical engineers and other design and construction professionals interested in learning the types and application of timber, steel and concrete piles for foundations of structures.

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
