Coastal Construction - Designing the Foundation

COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Designing the Foundation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides general guidance on designing foundations in a coastal environment.

Although design considerations for foundations in inland areas are very similar to those in coastal areas, foundations in coastal environments differ in the facts that they should 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. Thus, coastal flooding is more damaging than inland flooding.

This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Gaining an overview on the foundation design requirements and recommendations
  • Expanding on the different foundation styles
  • Familiarizing with the major steps in foundation design and analysis
