Seepage and Drainage - 7 PDH
2. SEEPAGE ANALYSIS
3. SEEPAGE CONTROL BY CUTOFF
4. DESIGN OF DRAINAGE BLANKET AND FILTERS
5. WELLPOINT SYSTEMS AND DEEP WELLS
6. LININGS FOR RESERVOIRS AND POLLUTION CONTROL FACILITIES
7. EROSION CONTROL
Upon completion of this course you will:
Learn techniques for analysis of seepage considerations at earth structure;
Learn how to construct and apply flow net diagrams;
Learn how to estimate seepage quantities for different soil conditions;
Learn how to calculate seepage forces exerted on soils subject to seepage conditions;
Learn about the conditions that lead to “boiling” seepage and mitigation techniques to minimize or eliminate its consequences;
Learn the cutoff techniques for seepage control;
Learn how to design and apply drainage blankets;
Learn about the different types of reservoir linings and their applicability;
Learn about “piping” failures and subsurface erosion; and
Learn about wellpoint systems.
This course is intended for civil engineers, structural engineers, geotechnical engineers, geologists and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to methods and techniques for seepage and drainage control for foundations of structures, and earth structures such as dams, reservoirs and levees.
Benefit for Attendee
This course will give engineers and other design and construction professionals an introduction to tools that can be used to evaluate seepage and drainage conditions and design for their mitigation and control.
