COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Designing the Foundation
COURSE NO: S04-017
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Designing the Foundation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on designing foundations, including selecting the appropriate materials, in coastal areas.

 

Design considerations for foundations in coastal environments are in many ways similar to those in inland areas. Like all foundations, coastal foundations must support gravity loads, resist uplift and lateral loads, and maintain lateral and vertical load path continuity from the elevated building to the soils below. Foundations in coastal areas are different in that they must generally resist higher winds, function in a corrosive environment, and withstand the environmental aspects that are unique to coastal areas, such as storm surges, rapidly moving floodwaters, wave action, and scour and erosion. These aspects can make coastal flooding more damaging than inland flooding.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with the different foundation styles
  • Learning the foundation design requirements and recommendations
  • Understanding pile foundations
  • Understanding the difference between open/deep, open/shallow and closed/shallow foundations
  • Learning about pier foundations
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 10, "Designing the Foundation" of the Coastal Construction Manual, published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Publication FEMA 55, Volume II.

COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Designing the Building
COURSE NO: S05-014
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Designing the Building
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides the design professional with sufficient background and examples for effectively designing a residential building proposed to be constructed in a coastal hazard area. The designer will find that engineering judgment will need to be applied to a range of issues which will arise during the design of a coastal residential building. This course describes the design process which involves the following:

  • Determining design loads
  • Determining the building’s foundation, structural frame, and envelope
  • Determining the connections between individual elements
  • Determining the elevation, placement, and support for utilities
  • Selecting the appropriate materials

 

In this course, the recommended design method is Allowable Stress Design (ASD), so there are factors of safety (FS) built into the development of the material stresses and the forces at the connections. This design method has been chosen for this manual because ASD continues to be the predominant design method in light-frame, residential, wood construction.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the design process
  • Determining site-specific loads
  • Applying loads to the building
  • Determining forces at connections and stresses in materials
  • Developing connections at each link
  • Selecting building materials
  • Designing for the building envelope
  • Designing for electrical and mechanical equipment
  • Designing for appurtenant structures
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 9, "Designing the Building" of the Coastal Construction Manual, published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Publication FEMA 55, Volume II.

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty five (25) questions to earn 5 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this FEMA publication.
The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.

COURSE TITLE: Coastal Construction - Constructing the Building
COURSE NO: S04-016
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Constructing the Building
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses constructing buildings, including foundation, framing, building envelop, and electrical and mechanical equipment, in coastal areas. Individual sections cover construction items that will probably require the most care or attention on the part of the builder in order for the design intent to be achieved. Builders may find that the permitting and inspection procedures in coastal areas are more involved than those in inland areas. Not only must all Federal, state, and local Coastal Zone Management and other regulatory requirements be met, the design plans and specifications may need to be sealed by a design professional.

 

Construction of residential buildings in coastal zones presents challenges to the builder not usually found in more inland locations. For all coastal residential buildings, these challenges may include the following:

  • Connection details require additional inspections
  • The need for careful surveying to place the building within property line setbacks and above The Design Flood Elevation (DFE)
  • The additional care required to ensure that all elements of the building will withstand the large forces associated with high wind speeds and coastal flooding
  • The additional care that must be taken in constructing a building envelope that will withstand the intrusion of air and moisture under the effects of high wind speeds
  • The difficulty of providing durable exterior construction in a moist, sometimes salt-laden, environment
  • The requirement to protect and, usually, place utilities above the DFE

 

In constructing coastal residential buildings on elevated pile foundations, builders face additional challenges:

  • The difficulty of constructing a driven pile foundation to accepted construction plan tolerances
  • The difficulty of building on an elevated post-and-beam foundation, compared to building on continuous wall foundations

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to structural engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Constructing the foundation
  • Framing the main structure
  • Constructing the building envelope
  • Constructing the appurtenant structures
  • Installing electrical and mechanical equipment
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 13, "Constructing the Building" of the Coastal Construction Manual, published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Publication FEMA 55, Volume II.
