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
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-1905, "Bearing Capacity of Soils".

COURSE TITLE: Slope Stability
COURSE NO: G04-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Slope Stability
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock.

 

Slope stability criteria are presented for strength tests, analysis conditions, and factors of safety. The criteria are intended to be used with methods of stability analysis that satisfy all conditions of equilibrium. Methods that do not satisfy all conditions of equilibrium may involve significant inaccuracies and should be used only under the restricted conditions described herein.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as design and construction personnel working on projects involving slope stability analysis.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Aspects applicable to all load conditions
  • Analyses of stability during and at the end of construction
  • Analyses of steady-state seepage conditions
  • Analyses of sudden drawdown stability
  • Analysis of stability during earthquakes
  • Design criteria for existing and new embankments
  • Design criteria of other slopes
  • Presentation of various types of analysis and results
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapters 1 through 4 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1902, "Slope Stability".

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
  • Types of instrumentation
Course Document
