This course is based entirely on the information published by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in Technical Manual No 5-818-5: This manual provides guidance for the planning, design, supervision, construction, and operation of dewatering and pressure relief systems and of seepage cutoffs for deep excavations for structures.

Specific content includes:

(1) description of various methods of dewatering
(2) pressure techniques for determining groundwater conditions
(3) characteristics of pervious aquifers and dewatering requirements
(4) guidance for specifying requirements for watering and seepage control measures
(5) procedures for designing, installing, operating, and checking the performance of watering systems for various types of excavations.

This course is based entirely on the information published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in Publication FEMA P-804 - Wind Retrofit Guide for Residential Buildings.

This course will serve to provide guidance on retrofitting existing buildings for improved performance during high-wind events in all coastal regions. The guide will provide a reference guideline for design professionals to determine which package of wind retrofit activities is most appropriate for a particular home.

This course is based entirely on the information published in a technical report prepared by National Highway Institute (NHI) and Office of Bridge Technology (HIBT). This course is 1 of a 2 Part Series that will provide an introduction to highway hydraulics. Inside the report is a discussion of the design highway drainage facilities and should be particularly useful for designers and engineers without extensive drainage training or experience. A review of fundamental hydraulic concepts is provided, including continuity, energy, momentum, hydrostatics, and weir flow followed by a more detailed review of open channel and closed conduit applications.

PART 1 of the Series will cover Chapters 1 through 4 of the technical report (this course)

PART 2 of the Series will cover Chapters 5 through 13 of the technical report

The purpose of this course is to provide basic background information on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for use by Engineers. The use of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS, or drones) has become a valuable tool for a variety of project types ranging from Land Development, Energy/Utility infrastructure, Collection of Biological Data, Public Works and Transportation.

At completion of the course you will be able to:

(1) Understand the meaning of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)
(2) Be familiar with various types of drones
(3) Understand how UASs fits into the larger landscape of autonomous aviation technologies
(4) Understand basic drone operations
(5) Understand the Photogrammetric Process
(6) Understand the regulatory framework for UASs

This course is based entirely on the information published by the North Carolina Department of Labor – Occupational Health and Safety Program – Industry Guide 14: A guide to OSHA Excavations Standard.

This course provides a general guide to review the basic elements of excavation safety and will examine the different sections of the OSHA excavations standard offering numerous illustrations and a safety checklist to help explain how to excavate and work safely in a trench. This guide is intended to be consistent with all existing OSHA standards and if there is any question of inconsistency refer to the OSHA standard specifically. Specific areas of discussion include:

(1) Soil Mechanics, Cave-ins, and Protective Support Systems
(2) Soil characteristics and how to determine soil types
(3) Sloping and benching options
(4) Discussion of Protective systems
(5) General Safety checklist
