Continuing Education Webinar (3 CPC)

PFAS AND PUBLIC WATER SYSTEMS (1 CPC)

James Peeples, PE, Vice President, T&M Associates

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, are widely used in products such as firefighting foams, waterproof clothes, and nonstick cookware. Called “forever chemicals” because they don’t break down under typical environmental conditions, PFAS accumulate in soil and water and can persist in the human body once ingested. This session will include a short background on PFAS and the reason they are so widespread in the environment, a discussion of the current state of PFAS regulation at the Federal and State level, recent developments regarding PFAS breakdown and how future PFAS work will be impacted, and PFAS treatment case studies for public water systems.

COMPLEMENTARY USE OF NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES FOR ACCURATE ASSESSMENT OF CURRENT, AND PREDICTION OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE OF CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS (1 CPC)

Nenad Gucunski, Professor and Chairman, Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rutgers University

Effective and economical management of bridges depend on the accurate assessment of their current condition and prediction of their future performance. Among all the bridge components, reinforced concrete decks, in most cases, deteriorate the fastest. The complexity of deterioration processes requires the application of multiple nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and other technologies to accurately describe the condition, and likely causes of deterioration. Listen to an overview of the benefits stemming from periodical multi-NDE technology surveys for bridge management, especially from the use of rapid and automated data collection and analysis processes.

Attendees are eligible to receive NJ or NY credit for this session.

VIRTUAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION METHODOLOGIES (1 CPC)

Aditi Patel, P.E., Vice President, LiRo’s Virtual Design Construction & Operations Department

Explore the use of Virtual Design and Construction methodologies in all phases of a project life cycle. Emerging technologies such as Reality Capture combined with Building Information Modeling could be successfully implemented in Design, Pre-Construction, Construction and Maintenance of facilities more efficiently, to reduce costs and increase accuracy of the information driving critical project decisions. This presentation will focus on use of cutting-edge technology to help inform the design process, getting stakeholder buy-in, solve critical coordination challenges early on to save expensive errors later during construction, enhanced project controls, closeout and handover workflows.

First UHPC Bridge Deck Overlay on a Major Suspension Bridge in the United States

Michael McDonagh, P.E., P.Eng. and Jordy Padilla, P.E.
Accreditation: 1 Credit Hour

In 2018, the Delaware River and Bay Authority determined that the deck of the first structure was near the end of its service life. Through a 50-year lifecycle cost analysis, a partial-depth deck replacement overlay utilizing Ultra High- Performance Concrete (UHPC) was identified as the preferred alternative to deck replacement and conventional overlays. The pilot project replaced the top 3.75 inches of the deck with UHPC on approximately 25,000 square feet of deck, incorporating overlays on the main suspension bridge, deck truss and steel girder approach structures. The completion of this project set new milestones in the U.S. as the largest use and continuous pour of UHPC overlay.

An Introduction to Physical Asset Management

Justin Furch, Technology Practice Leader
Accreditation: 1 Credit Hour

Physical asset management, which differs from financial or software asset management, is an important and often complicated topic to most organizations. Focusing on increased efficiency and transparency, a well-defined asset management system will provide an organization with their current condition and valuation to support these needs, as well as provide a foundation for budget planning and goal setting. Asset management is one of the first steps in developing risk assessments and resiliency. It can be incorporated into every part of an organizations’ operations and will provide immediate value when fully adopted. This presentation will cover the basic components of asset management, what it provides, why it is so important, and how to get started.

How the Towers Fell, Lessons Learned from the 1993 and 9/11 Attacks

Product: On-Demand
Location: Online
Member Price: $35
Course Length: 3 hours
Credit(s):  3 PDH

To understand “How the Towers Fell” we first need to examine how and why the WTC Complex and PATH Station were first constructed, the existing “New Jersey Tubes” they replaced, the details of the 1993 WTC bombing damage, the forensic Investigation by ATF & FBI, the recovery and repair effort, and the lessons learned on improving security and emergency response at the WTC complex that was a factor during the 9-11 attack. This will be followed by a description of evacuation of the WTC complex after the first plane hit the towers, and how the Twin Towers and Seven WTC collapsed with a first-hand in-depth description of the site damage.

We will examine the damage to lower Manhattan and the severe economic impact that the tragic event had on the community and will build upon the information presented on the 1993 Bombing and the 9/11 attacks. It will also cover, temporary shoring, flood protection, and site cleanup from the 9- 11 attacks followed by the construction of the Temporary PATH Station, reconstruction, repairs to the PATH tunnels and Exchange Place Station in NJ. It will cover recommended improvements in building codes. It will foster discussion about whether a standard high-rise tower could have survived the 1993 Bombing and why the Twin Towers and 7 World Trade Center all remained stable for different time periods only to collapse later in a manner resembling controlled demolition.
