Conduits Culverts and Pipes
This PDH online course is a part of the Civil course category. 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.
Reinforced concrete conduits and pipes are used for dams, urban levees, and other levees where public safety is at risk or substantial property damage could occur. Corrugated metal pipes are acceptable through agricultural levees where levee embankments are not higher than 4 m (12 ft) above the conduit invert. Inlet structures, intake towers, gate wells, and outlet structures should be concrete, or corrugated metal structures may be used in agricultural and rural levees. Guidance on plastic, ductile iron and steel pipes are also covered.
This course is intended for use by civil engineers, construction professionals and others interested in learning about conduits, culverts and pipes.
Upon completion of this course, you will learn about:
- Cast in place conduits for dams
- Circular reinforced concrete pipes
- Corrugated metal pipes
- Concrete culverts
- Plastic pipes
- Ductile iron and steel pipes
- Pipe jacking
