  • hydraulic steel structure

    Design of Hydraulic Steel Structures: 4 PDH

    $24.00
    Add to cart
    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.

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. Hydraulic steel structures are lock gates, tainter gates, tainter valves, bulkheads and stoplogs, vertical lift gates, components of hydroelectric and pumping plants, and miscellaneous structures such as lock wall accessories, local flood protection gates, and outlet works gates. HSS may be subject to submergence, wave action, hydraulic hammer, cavitation, impact, corrosion, and severe climatic conditions.

    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.

    Foundations in Expansive Soils: 6 PDH

    $36.00
    Add to cart
    This course presents guidance and information for the geotechnical investigation necessary for the selection and design of foundations for heavy and light buildings constructed in expansive clay soil areas. The information in this course is generally applicable to many types of structures such as residences, warehouses, and multi-story buildings. Emphasis is given to the maintenance of an environment that encourages constant moisture conditions in the foundation soils during and following construction. Special attention must always be given to specific requirements of the structure such as limitations on allowable differential movement.

    The course provides an understanding of the structure and properties of metals, stress mechanisms, failure modes and the characteristics determine their usefulness for a specific application. Often, materials are subject to variable forces (loads). The engineer calculates these forces to establish the service that can be expected and material scientists experiment to determine how materials deform (elongate, compress, and twist) or break as a function of applied load, time, temperature, and other conditions.Instructor: Seth Grablow, PE
