This course will treat a central question that remains always before us as we make choices on both a personal and professional level - a question that society demands that we ask ourselves individually. It is the question that society will use in judging our actions and the resulting consequences.

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.

The goal of this five module series is to educate the learner, whether an agency person, or academia, or otherwise, cost effective ways to implement a successful program which combines pavement management, recycling and preservation. This series of courses are designed to increase participants' knowledge of a) pavement management and distress evaluation system, b) the three major asphalt pavement in-place recycling techniques (i.e. Hot in Place Recycling, HIR, Cold in Place Recycling, CIR, Full Depth Reclamation, FDR and their respective sub disciplines). These courses are designed for state and local transportation agency engineers and other agency personnel who are responsible for pavement management, evaluation, selecting, designing, and/or constructing the agency's asphalt pavement resurfacing, rehabilitation, reconstruction and preservation alternatives. The course will particularly benefit those individuals responsible for selecting and designing asphalt in-place recycling and preservation projects, for writing effective specifications, or for inspecting asphalt in-place recycling and preservation projects during their construction. Contractors, consulting engineers, and industry representatives involved in pavement management, evaluation, asphalt pavement in-place recycling and pavement preservation will benefit from the course.

This course should be of interest to those who practice surveying but also those who work in the civil engineering field, including county engineers, city engineers, public works officials, transportation engineers, DOT personnel, federal employees, contractors and consultants. The first part of this course looks at the terminology and definitions of a Geographic Information System (GIS). The second part of this course deals with the planning, design, implementation and uses of a GIS. The third part of the seminar will deal with the National Spatial Reference System/Readjustment of North American Datum (NAD) 83.

The objective of this course is to assist an engineer in the development of the most reliable and cost-effective rehabilitation alternatives for asphalt pavements. The abilities of the engineer required to preserve the existing pavement system are much different than those required to originally design the system. They need to have an understanding of what caused the distress they are seeing and what steps can be taken to correct them. The course is broken into two units: pavement management concepts and pavement rehabilitation procedures. The first unit will address pavement management concepts at the project level which will include an overview of pavement management, pavement structural and condition assessment, distress mechanisms for Hot Mix Asphalt and project evaluation. The second unit provides information on pavement rehabilitation through pavement maintenance techniques, surface rehabilitation procedures, recycling of asphalt pavements, and asphalt overlays.

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.

This course is a comprehensive coverage of stormwater runoff hydrographs and their use. It will be of interest to consulting engineers, municipal and county engineers, highway and construction engineers, as well as, site developers and planners, or anyone interested in learning methods for calculating and designing stormwater drainage systems to accommodate stormwater runoff from large drainage basins. The basics of hydrograph development based on mass balance are presented, as well as, methods for measuring the necessary parameters (precipitation, evaporation and stream flow). Unit hydrographs are developed from existing hydrographs and synthetic unit hydrographs are calculated using Natural Resources Conservation Service methods. The usefulness of unit hydrographs to allow development of runoff hydrographs for any storm condition is discussed. A simplified Rational Method unit hydrograph is presented which is useful in designing stormwater detention and retention ponds.
