COURSE TITLE: Wood as An Engineering Material: Moisture Relations and Physical Properties
COURSE NO: S02-022
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wood as An Engineering Material: Moisture Relations and Physical Properties
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the macroscopic physical properties of wood with emphasis on their relationship with moisture content.

 

Wood, like many natural materials, is hygroscopic; it takes on moisture from the surrounding environment. Moisture exchange between wood and air depends on the relative hu­midity and temperature of the air and the current amount of water in the wood. This moisture relationship has an impor­tant influence on wood properties and performance. Many of the challenges of using wood as an engineering material arise from changes in moisture content or an abundance of moisture within the wood.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding in fire safety of wood construction or who are involved in the design and planning of wood structures.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with the different wood-moisture relationships
  • Understanding the four thermal properties of wood
  • Learning about the electrical properties of wood
  • Understanding the friction properties of wood
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 4, "Moisture Relations and Physical Properties of Wood" of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Publication, “Wood Handbook - Wood as An Engineering Material”, FPL-GTR-190.

COURSE TITLE: Wood as An Engineering Material: Mechanical Properties of Wood
COURSE NO: S04-019
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wood as An Engineering Material: Mechanical Properties of Wood
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on the most recent research on properties of the wood cell wall at the nanoscale level. It discusses the mechanical properties of wood, the nature and magnitude of variability in its properties as well as the effect of growth features.

 

Many of the mechanical properties of wood tabulated in this course were derived from extensive sampling and analysis procedures. These properties are represented as the average mechanical properties of the species. Some properties, such as tension parallel to the grain, and all properties for some imported species are based on a more limited number of specimens that were not subjected to the same sampling and analysis procedures. The appropriateness of these latter properties to represent the average properties of a species is uncertain; nevertheless, the properties represent the best information available.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding in the mechanical properties of wood or who are involved in the design and planning of wood structures.

COURSE TITLE: Wood as an Engineering Material: Use of Wood in Buildings and Bridges
COURSE NO: S02-025
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wood as an Engineering Material: Use of Wood in Buildings and Bridges
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the features of various types of building systems. It places emphasis on how these systems have adapted to the use of modern materials and techniques.

 

In North America, most housing and commercial structures built prior to the 20th century used wood as the major structural material. The abundant wood resource formed the basic structure for most houses, commercial buildings, bridges, and utility poles. Today, houses and many light commercial and industrial buildings are made using modern wood structural materials. Recently, there has been increased interest in using wood for various types of transportation structures, including highway bridges. Furthermore, prefabricated floor and wall panels along with prefabricated roof and floor trusses or I-joists are replacing piece-by-piece on-site construction with dimension lumber.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding in use of wood in buildings and bridges.

COURSE NO: S02-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Richard Nolan, P.E.
Determining Allowable Design Values for Wood
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course demonstrates how to adjust the reference design values for the most significant factors. Methods for determining all the significant types of design values for wood will be discussed, and include bending, shear, compression (parallel & perpendicular to the grain), tension and deflection. Some of the major factors affecting the design values that will be explained include moisture content, temperature, beam stability, column stability, load duration, repetitive factor, etc. Narration and pictures are provided on some of the slides to expound on the printed information. Realistic examples are included at the end of the slides that show how to size a header and determine the required number of header supports.

 

This course provides prescriptive guidance on how to determine allowable design values for wood. The methodology taught in this course is based on the National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDSWC) published by the American Forest & Paper Association and the American Wood Council, which is a recognized standard for designing wood dwellings. It is not necessary to acquire the NDSWC but it would be a valuable reference to have and would provide further insight into the course.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for engineers, architects or builders who need to determine the allowable design values for wood. After taking the course, engineers, architects and builders will be able to apply the correct allowable design value so that wood components can safely carry a load.

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
