This course surveys American literature from the post-Civil War period to the present. The course is divided into three units, each of which focuses upon a specific period in American literary thought and expression. The lessons within each unit are designed to cultivate an approach to reading that regards each text as the writer's attempt to answer - or perhaps better to understand - an urgent question entailed in the intellectual, material, and experiential character of her or his age. View a detailed course description of E 338. This course is independent study and is self-paced. Students have five months upon registration in which to complete all coursework. Exams must be taken in a proctored location, with arrangements to be made by the student. Exam proctoring fees vary by site and are not included in the course fees.

In this course students survey significant texts in the American literary and cultural tradition from the Colonial period through the Civil War. This course is historical in its conception and, therefore, emphasizes an historical approach to the material. This approach - designed to cultivate historically-committed interpretation - regards writers as producers of time and place-specific cultural work and treats their texts as enactments of that work.

Design of reinforced concrete spread footings is the focus of this course. Fundamental assumptions for determining the soil pressure distribution under footings are presented along with commonly used formulas. Structural design of footings to comply with Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-02 and ACI 318-05) is addressed. Individual topics include: loads, load factors, load combinations, resistance factors, materials, flexure, shear, reinforcement details, development length, and embedment reinforcement. Brief comparisons are made to illustrate the primary differences between footing design by ACI 318-02 and the previous version ACI 318-99. Changes in course content due to the 2005 revisions to ACI 318 were minor and are addressed with a course revision sheet.

This course is designed to familiarize Designers with pervious concrete (PC) as a stormwater best management practice through infiltration. Discussion will include PC mix design, design issues affecting PC pavement, including soils and stormwater infiltration, site hydrology, pavement sizing, siting & layout, site preparation, PC placement and post placement landscaping, monitoring, and long term care and maintenance. In particular Piedmont soil types and infiltration rates are discussed. ASTM standard test for measuring infiltration rates through porous pavements is demonstrated. The historical evolution of pervious concrete paving and its many benefits are also covered. Some attention is given to good and bad installation practices. Intended audience: This course will be of direct interest to those in the Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning fields, including county engineers, city engineers, public works officials, transportation engineers, DOT personnel, consultants, and all those with responsibilities for stormwater design and control.

Seismic Design Part 1 covers the basic knowledge necessary to understand structural dynamics and earthquake engineering in the context of structural design. The first portion of the course is a brief overview of structural dynamics which defines terms and general concepts to aid in understanding how structures respond to dynamic loads and why we design structures the way we do. The second component of the course is an overview of basic seismology and earthquakes. Material presented in this section includes why earthquakes happen, where they are likely to happen, what is meant by earthquake magnitude and what are the effects of earthquakes on infrastructure. The final two segments of the course describe the earthquake hazard in the United States and the basic premise for seismic design according to current codes. The overall goal of this course is to provide the background necessary to understand structural behavior under dynamic loads, earthquake hazard and effects, and the current prescriptive code requirements. Course Objectives: Develop a fundamental understanding of the response of structures to dynamic loads; Develop a fundamental understanding of the terminology, mechanisms, causes and effects of earthquakes; Be familiar with the seismic hazard across the United States; Understand the basic premise of the current design methodology prescribed by U.S. codes

Today with the common use of GPS and modern technology, science seems to be getting the upper hand in this age old struggle between the Art of Surveying and the Science of Surveying. This has resulted in surveyors setting many additional corners, in some cases next to established property corners. In some instances this has resulted in court fights and lawsuits that are totally unnecessary. The modern surveying profession needs to understand more about the art of accepting and proofing evidence of existing property boundary locations. Learning to survey properly not just based on technology or mathematical calculations.

This course provides an overview of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. This course can serve as a refresher or update on key planning, safety, and design issues pertaining to human-powered transportation modes for the practicing transportation engineer and planner. The material is divided into three basic topics: an overview of safety, mode usage, and evolution of federal policies, basic design concepts and considerations for pedestrians, and basic design concepts and considerations for bicyclists.

Concrete slab on grade is the single most common structural element used in the building industry today. This course, first of a series on concrete construction and design, examines the construction of high quality residential slabs on grade from the viewpoints of the contractor and engineer. Videotape and computer modeling are used extensively as an elaborate residential driveway is planned, modeled, constructed and finished. Planning is covered in detail. Various methods of preventing and limiting cracking are examined in depth.
