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.

Learning Objectives

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

  • RCC applications, objectives and advantages
  • Investigation and selection of materials
  • Mixture proportioning considerations and selection
  • Understanding the properties of RCC
  • Design and construction considerations
  • Construction methods and equipment
  • Quality control and quality assurance in RCC construction
  • RCC performance

COURSE TITLE: Rational Method Hydrologic Calculations with Excel 2
COURSE NO: C01-010
Rational Method Hydrologic Calculations with Excel 2
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will enable you to calculate peak storm water runoff rate using the Rational Method equation in either U.S. or S.I. units, including determination of runoff coefficient, calculation of time of concentration, and determination of design rainfall intensity.  It will also prepare you for the use of Excel spreadsheets to efficiently make the calculations.

 

Calculation of peak storm water runoff rate from a drainage area is often done with the Rational Method equation (Q = CiA).  Use of Excel spreadsheets for calculations with this equation and for determination of the design rainfall intensity and the time of concentration of the drainage area, are included in this course.  The parameters in the equations are defined with typical units for both U.S. and S.I. units.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable primarily to civil engineers, hydraulic engineers, highway engineers, and environmental engineers, design professionals, technical and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the rational method hydrologic calculations using Excel.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Knowing the parameters and their U.S. and S.I. units to be used in the Rational Method equation
  • Ability to calculate peak storm water runoff rate with the Rational Method equation, using either U.S. or S.I. units
  • Ability to place a given soil into one of the four SCS soil groups based on its measured minimum infiltration rate
  • Ability to place a given soil into one of the four SCS soil groups based on its description
  • Ability to determine a value of the Rational Method runoff coefficient based on land use, soil group, and slope of the watershed
  • Ability to calculate the overland sheet flow travel time for a watershed using the Manning Kinematic equation
  • Ability to calculate the shallow concentrated flow travel time for a watershed using the NRCS method
  • Ability to calculate the open channel flow travel time for a watershed using the Manning equation

COURSE TITLE: Ethics in Professional Practice
COURSE NO: LE2-007
Ethics in Professional Practice
Course Highlights

In this online engineering PDH course, background on the philosophical models that guide ethical behavior is discussed and then applied to specific situations in engineering codes of ethics. This course is based on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Professional Practice Curriculum, Volume 8, Section: Engineering Ethics.

 

Many engineering organizations have drafted codes of ethics to which their members are required to commit.  Generally, these codes are quite similar and are based on a few fundamental principles which provide guidance to professional engineers in common situations. Nevertheless, there are many difficult or ambiguous situations in which the best ethical solution is difficult to determine.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended primarily for engineers seeking to learn ethical principles and how to apply them to their professional practice.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Determining ethical behavior using several philosophical models
  • Evaluating a practical situation in terms of a professional code of ethics
  • Identifying situations that represent conflicts of interest and formulate a proper response
  • Applying the standards of professional ethics in technical communication
  • Recognizing environmental impacts of engineering work
  • Considering principles of sustainable development in the performance of professional duties
