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.

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

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.

COURSE TITLE: Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
COURSE NO: C05-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents EPA's BMP for identifying and eliminating non-stormwater discharges to storm sewers to improve runoff stormwater quality.

 

Non-storm water discharges are typically the result of unauthorized connections of sanitary or process wastewater drains to storm sewers. These connections are common, yet often go undetected. Non-storm water discharges can include discharges of process water, air conditioner condensate, non-contact cooling water, vehicle wash water, or sanitary waste.

 

EPA recognizes that these discharges are significant sources of pollutants, and unless regulated by an NPDES permit, they are also illegal. Therefore the EPA published the Storm Water Phase II Rule on December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination” is one of the Best Management Practices that requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas to identify and eliminate non-storm water discharges to storm sewers in order to improve runoff water quality.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to municipality owners and/or operators, construction contractors/workers, site developers, engineers, managers, and all other personnel involved in the detection and elimination of illicit discharges.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Types and methods of illicit discharges
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • Maintenance and cost considerations
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s Best Management Practice relating to “Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination”. This BMP addresses the following:
  • Failing Septic Systems
  • Industrial/Business Connections
  • Recreational Sewage
