  • A guide to offshore wind energy

    A Guide to Offshore Wind Energy: 2 PDH

    $12.00
    Offshore wind turbines harness the energy of the ocean winds and turn it into electricity. This course introduces the basic principles of proposed US offshore wind facilities. The course summarizes a study conducted by EESI of existing European and Asian offshore wind farms. The topics addressed include technical issues related to marine foundations and structures, transmission issues unique to offshore power generation, political and regulatory issues and the public's perceptions of proposed offshore wind farms. This course demonstrates that offshore wind energy has been successfully implemented in other parts of the world and that the potential for wind farms in U.S. waters is favorable.Instructor: Juan Pesante, PE

    This course focuses on the equipment and equipment components used to generate heating and cooling. It does not include fans and pumps. This distinction is clear for most equipment types, such as unit heaters, boilers, and chillers. However, for packaged air-conditioning (AC) equipment the distinction can be subtle. Most packaged AC equipment is treated as a unit by performance rating procedures. Hence, separation of the fans is difficult. For this study, only the refrigerant compressors of packaged equipment are considered.

    Proper design, construction, and maintenance of hydraulic steel structures (HSS) is imperative for safe operation and reliable service over the structure’s lifetime. Engineers charged with the responsibility of maintaining these structures must be familiar with the basics of HSS design, as well as the intricacies of the structure’s abilities and limitations. This 4 hour interactive course prescribes guidance for (a) designing hydraulic steel structures (HSS) by load and resistance factor design (LRFD) and (b) fracture control. Allowable stress design (ASD) guidance is provided as an alternative design procedure or for those structure types where LRFD criteria have yet to be developed.

  • Deterioration of Concrete: 2 PDH

    Deterioration of Concrete: 2 PDH

    $12.00
    In this course, the student will review Chapter 3, Causes of Distress and Deterioration of Concrete from Engineer Manual (EM) 1110-2-2002, “Engineering and Design – Evaluation and Repair of Concrete Structures” published by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (issued 30 June 1995). This course is most relevant to engineers wishing to attain knowledge on the most common causes of problems in concrete. The course also provides a brief description of the basic mechanism of each common problem, a description of the typical symptoms that would be observed during a visual inspection, and suggests preventative methods or techniques to prevent further damage.Instructor: Raymond Bosek, PE

    A basic understanding of the underlying causes of concrete deficiencies is essential to performing meaningful evaluations which lead to the proper selection of the method or technique used to successfully repair concrete. Symptoms or observations of a deficiency must be differentiated from the actual cause of the deficiency, and it is imperative that causes and not symptoms be addressed in repairs. Deterioration of concrete is an extremely complex subject since, in most cases, the damage detected will be the result of more than one mechanism.
