COURSE TITLE: Curing Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
COURSE NO: C05-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Curing Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on details of concrete curing practice as they pertain to construction of Portland cement concrete pavements. It is organized around the major events in curing pavements: curing immediately after placement (initial curing), curing during the period after final finishing (final curing), and termination of curing and evaluation of effectiveness of curing.

 

Curing has long been recognized as an important process in constructing durable concrete pavements. Proper curing allows the concrete to develop its potential strength and durability. Inadequate curing can result in surface damage in the form of plastic shrinkage cracking, spalling, and erosion of paste. Since many variables influence the choice of curing materials and when and how to apply curing, the material presented places particular emphasis on attention to details with respect to moisture retention and concrete temperature control.

 

This 5 PDH  online  course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the design and installation of concrete pavements.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Selection of curing materials and procedures
  • Analysis of concrete properties and jobsite conditions
  • Knowing how to adjust the curing practice to account for specific project conditions

COURSE TITLE: Low Impact Development Design Strategies
COURSE NO: C07-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Low Impact Development Design Strategies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the wide array of impact reduction and site design techniques that allow engineers and planners to create stormwater control mechanisms that function in a manner similar to that of natural control mechanisms.

 

The low-impact development (LID) approach combines a hydrologically functional site design with pollution prevention measures to compensate for land development impacts on hydrology and water quality. The primary goal of Low Impact Development methods is to mimic the predevelopment site hydrology by using site design techniques that store, infiltrate, evaporate, and detain runoff. Use of these techniques helps to reduce off-site runoff and ensure adequate groundwater recharge. Since every aspect of site development affects the hydrologic response of the site, LID control techniques focus mainly on site hydrology.

 

This 7 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers and planners as well as construction professionals who are interested in learning about low impact development design techniques and their applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding low-impact development goals
  • Understanding low-impact development site planning
  • Understanding low-impact development hydrologic analysis
  • Understanding low-impact development integrated management
  • Understanding erosion and sediment control considerations for low-impact development

COURSE TITLE: Groundwater Hydrology
COURSE NO: C09-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Groundwater Hydrology
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of the occurrence and movement of groundwater. Procedures for planning and managing a site characterization and modeling study are then presented. This is followed by chapters addressing the technical aspects of field investigative methods and computer modeling. A final chapter discussing the interaction of groundwater and surface water is then presented.

 

Since it is not possible to provide specific instructions and/or specific procedures that are universally applicable to every situation that may be encountered, this course emphasizes the use of sound judgment and the development of a good understanding of basic groundwater concepts rather than providing specific guidelines.

 

This 9 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the study and analysis of groundwater flow.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Occurrence and movement of groundwater
  • Planning a groundwater investigation and modeling study
  • Field investigative methods
  • Computer modeling of groundwater flow
  • Interaction between surface water and groundwater
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1421, "Groundwater Hydrology".
