8 PDHs in ONE DAY at our next CE Event!

On March 23 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers, in conjunction with the New York State Society of Professional Engineers will hold Common Mistakes in Design of Coastal and Marine Projects. This event, worth 8 PDHs, will be held atĀ Mott MacDonald in Iselin, New Jersey. The best part? These credits will all be eligible for your professional engineering renewal requirements for 2020.

This participatory classroom-seminar, led by staff consultant at Bergmann Associates Saied Saiedi, PhD, PEng,
will discuss common mistakes in the design of coastal & marine projects with the following objectives:

  • To provide for a list of significant design mistakes
  • To discuss case studies of damages referring to underlying design mistakes
  • To introduce design tools and practical rules of thumb
  • To perform class exercises

There will also be several special features, including real-life case studies, class exercises, computational aids and design tools, and a collection of technical literature and educational video clips.

If you’re looking for a complete course outline, you can expect:

  • Examples of major damages and failures
  • Introduction to coastal & marine hydraulics (waves, currents, etc.)
  • Introduction to coastal sediment transport
  • COMMON MISTAKES related to:
    • Design wave height
    • Design water level
    • Field data vs. theoretical guides
    • Sediment transport (capacity vs. actual transport, etc.)
    • Beach morphology
    • Nature-based (green) solutions vs. gray structures
    • Forces on structures (pipes, piles, sea walls, vessels, etc.)
    • Breakwaters and revetments
    • Static and dynamic stability of vessels
  • Software and design tools
  • Five take-away messages

If you’re a NSPE member, you can attend this event for $225. Sustaining members cost $275 and non-members cost $325. All ticket prices include the cost of breakfast and lunch.
