Stability Analysis of Concrete Structures (AIA# TCESCO) (5 credit hours/5 HSW Hours)
This course covers requirements for static methods used in stability analyses of hydraulic structures. The types of concrete structures addressed in this course include dams, locks, retaining walls, inland floodwalls, coastal floodwalls, spillways, outlet works, hydroelectric power plants, pumping plants, and U-channels. The structures may be founded on rock or soil and have either flat or sloped bases. This course defines the types and combination of applied loads, including uplift forces due to hydrostatic pressures in the foundation material. Additionally, the course defines the various components that enable the structure to resist movement, including anchors to the foundation. Most importantly, this course prescribes the safety factors, which govern stability requirements for the structure for various load combinations. Lastly, guidance is provided for evaluating and improving the stability of existing structures.
