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: Dam Safety Risk Management
COURSE NO: C03-060
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Dam Safety Risk Management
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH covers the basic guidelines and principles of dam risk management.

 

Risk management is the overarching activity when risk is used to inform dam safety decision making and builds on risk analysis and risk assessment phases. It encompasses activities related to making risk-informed decisions, prioritizing evaluations of risk, prioritizing risk reduction activities, and making program decisions associated with managing a portfolio of facilities. Risk management includes evaluating the environmental, social, cultural, ethical, political, and legal considerations during all parts of the process.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and civil engineers, as well as other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of dam risk management in order to make risk-informed decisions.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about the dam safety risk management framework for decision making
  • Understanding the aspects and components of Risk Analysis (i.e. types, estimation & results)
  • Understanding the aspects and components of Risk Assessment (i.e. process, safety decision making approach & tolerable risk)
  • Understanding the aspects and components of Risk Management (i.e. objectives, urgency of action & prioritization)
  • Familiarization with the aspects and components of Risk Communication and public awareness
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety Risk Management" by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), publication FEMA P-1025, dated January 2015.

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
Course Document
