    Design of Hydraulic Steel Structures: 4 PDH

    Preview Course: Design of Hydraulic Steel Structures
    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. Hydraulic steel structures are lock gates, tainter gates, tainter valves, bulkheads and stop logs, 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.
