This course introduces the basics of residential and small-scale commercial rainwater harvesting systems design. It is intended to serve as a first step in considering options for constructing a rainwater harvesting system or implementing a harvesting program.
This course covers a full range of topics and design examples intended to provide engineers with the information needed to make knowledgeable decisions regarding the selection, design, fabrication, and construction of bracing systems for bridges.
This course provides practical information regarding the decking options and design considerations for steel bridges, presenting deck types such as concrete deck slabs, metal grid decks, orthotropic steel decks, wood decks, and several others.
This 4 PDH online course provides guidance on the design and construction of conduits, culverts, and pipes, and design procedures for trench/embankment earth loadings, highway loadings, railroad loadings, surface concentrated loadings, and internal/external fluid pressures.
This course contains guidelines and procedures for the design and construction of skid-resistant pavement, pavement evaluation with friction measuring equipment, and maintenance of high skid-resistant pavements.
This course provides guidance on best practices for earthquake-resistant house design and construction for use by builders, designers, code enforcement personnel, and potential homeowners. It also introduces and explains the effects of earthquake loads on one- and two-family detached houses and identifies the code requirements intended to resist these loads.
Roundabouts are a common form of intersection control used throughout the world and increasingly in the United States. The course provides guidance on geometric planning and design, for single and multi-lane roundabouts.
This course presents guidance for selecting economical foundations on expansive soil to minimize structural distress to within tolerable levels and guidance for minimizing problems that may occur in structures on expansive soils.
This course provides a general description of the various concrete deck types, a discussion of the basic structural behavior of concrete decks, and an overview of major design and detailing considerations.
The Extending Service Life of Existing RC Pavements course provides information on best practices in rehabilitation strategies for extending the service life of continuously reinforced concrete pavements
This course discusses the activated sludge process employed extensively throughout the world in its conventional form and modified forms, all of which are capable of meeting secondary treatment effluent limits at wastewater treatment plants.
This course provides discussion of and detailed examples of process design calculations for a single stage BOD removal MBBR system, a two-stage BOD removal MBBR system, a single stage tertiary nitrification MBBR system, a two-stage BOD removal/Nitrification MBBR system a post-anoxic denitrification MBBR system and a pre-anoxic denitrification MBBR system.
This course includes discussion of process design calculations for the membrane module used in an MBR system, for an MBR aeration tank designed to provide BOD removal and nitrification, and for a pre-anoxic tank to go with an MBR BOD removal and nitrification system.
This course is about measurement of the flow rate of a fluid flowing under pressure in a closed conduit. Several categories of pipe flow measurement devices are described and discussed, including some associated calculations.
This course provides guidance on design loads for residential buildings and focuses on those aspects of ASCE 7 and other technical resources that are particularly relevant to the determination of design loads for residential structures.
