Civil engineering

  1. 1. Civil Engineering EG380 Colorado State University Dr. Robert N. Meroney Click on speaker, then click on title
  2. 2. Civil Engineering is Everywhere  Civil Engineering is a composite of many specific disciplines. – Structural – Waste Treatment – Transportation – Geotechnical – Water Management 61% are clueless – ConstructionWhy? Management about engineering
  3. 3. Building Big!!!!Buildings & Structures: CitiesInfrastructure: TransportationCulture: Art: ArchitectureThe Future: Without Limit! Link: Building Big Site
  4. 4. What is Civil Engineering???? Civil engineering is a composite of many specific disciplines. – Structural & solid mechanics. – Waste treatment & environmental. – Transportation. – Geotechnical & soil mechanics. – Hydraulics & water management. – Construction management.
  5. 5. Structural & Solid Mechanics Structural engineers design steel, concrete, or timber framed structures such as: – Tall buildings & towers, – Bridges, – Dams, – Retaining walls, & foundations, &. – Stadiums. Link: Mackinack Bridge Link: Chesepeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel
  6. 6. Waste Treatment & Environmental. Wastewater treatment engineers are civil or environmental engineers trained to design or analyze water treatment plants. Water treatment plants are categorized as follows: – Sanitary waste treatment facilities, – Industrial waste treatment facilities, – Potable (drinking) water treatment facility. Largest treatment basins in the USA Link: Visit Sewage World
  7. 7. Transportation Transportation Engineers design and analyze – Highways, – Railways, – Airports, – Urban and Suburban Road Networks, – Parking Lots, and – Traffic Control Signal Systems. Link: Transportation at work
  8. 8. Geotechnical & Soil Mechanics Geotechnical Engineers analyze the subterranean rock and soil to determine its suitability to support extreme loads. Proper geotechnical engineering is essential for a safe and secure structure. Link: A bad engineering job
  9. 9. Hydraulics & Water Management Watermanagement involves the use of hydrologic and hydraulic principles to design: – Drainage systems, – Detention/retention ponds, – Navigational waterways, and – Flood control levees, dams, Link: Hoover Dam and lakes. Link: Flood Pictures
  10. 10. Construction Management Construction managers: – Review contracts, – Order materials, – Hire and schedule sub- contractors. The job of a construction manager is to: – Provide quality control and insure project is completed on time and. – Within budget.Link: Golden Gate Bridge Construction
  11. 11. U.S. Civil Engineering: 150years  The twelve founders gathered at the Croton Aqueduct, New York, on November 5, 1852, to establish ASCE.  The American Society of Civil Engineers, a pro- fessional organization representing more than 123,000 civil engineers, celebrates its 150thLink: ASCE History Site anniversary in 2002.
