Civil Engineering Civil engineering focuses onthe infrastructure of the world: Water works, Sewers, Dams, PowerPlants, Transmission Towers/Lines,Railroads, Highways, Bridges,Tunnels, Irrigation Canals, RiverNavigation, Shipping Canals, TrafficControl, Mass Transit, AirportRunways, Terminals, Industrial PlantBuildings, Skyscrapers, etc.
Civil Engineering• In the beginning, Civil Engineering included all engineers that did not practice military engineering; said to have begun in 18th century France• First “Civil Engineer” was an Englishman, John Smeaton in 1761• Civil engineers have saved more lives than all the doctors in history --- development of clean water and sanitation systems
Civil Engineering• Henry H. White, first KY Civil Engineering Graduate from Bacon (Georgetown) College in 1840• Fall of 1886, “State College” (UK) established civil engineering degree• John Wesley Gunn of Lexington received first Civil Engineering degree from A & M College (UK) in 1890
CE Student Organizations• Chi Epsilon – Civil Engineering honorary• ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers)• AGC (Association of General Contractors)• ARTPA (American Road and Transportation Builders Association)• ITE (Institute of Transportation Engineers)• KSPE (Kentucky Society of Professional Engineers – section of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE))
Civil Engineering Specialties• Construction • Structural• Environmental/ • Surveying Water Quality • Transportation• Geotechnical • Water• Hydraulics Resources• Materials
Construction Engineers• Design formwork, scaffolding, lifting apparatus, etc.• Management of construction resources: labor, materials, equipment, money and time.
Environmental Engineers• Apply fluid mechanics, biology and chemistry to the design and operation of environmental control systems, e.g., municipal and industrial wastewater systems.• Model and monitor the movement and behavior of water pollutants in natural waters.
Geotechnical Engineers• Analyze soil and rock that affect the behavior of struc- tures, pavements, underground facilities, and containment structures for solid and liquid wastes.• Design foundations, retaining walls, roadway cuts, etc.• Field and laboratory work along with design.
Hydraulic Engineers• Analyze and design systems to transport liquids.• Small and large systems of pipes as well as engineered and natural channels.• Hydraulic machinery such as pumps and turbines, hydraulic controls such as valves and weirs, and hydraulic structures such as dams and spillways.
Materials EngineersDesign, analyze, and construct materials such as:• Steel• Concrete• Masonry• Asphalt• Composites
Structural Engineers• Design and analyze all man- made objects whose primary function is load resistance: buildings, bridges, aircraft, transmission towers, radar domes and antennas, drilling platforms, etc.• Must also consider the economics, esthetics and social implications of their creations.
Surveyors• Precisely locate and layout engineering projects.• GIS (Geographic Information Systems), GPS (Global Positioning Systems), and lasers distance measurement devices.• Maps and aerial photos.
Transportation Engineers• Analyze movement of persons and goods.• Plan, design, construct, maintain and operate various transportation modes (e.g., highway, railway, air, water, etc.).• Design traffic management systems.
Water Resources Engineers• Develop, use and manage world’s water resources.• Design water distribution systems, wells, reservoirs, canals, locks and dams, port facilities and flood control systems.• Analyze the impact of other engineering projects on the natural hydrologic system.
