Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Geotechnical Engineering Series - Earth Retaining Structures, you'll learn ...

  • Classification of earth retaining structures based on load support mechanism, construction method and system rigidity
  • Effects of cohesion, wall friction and wall adhesion on lateral earth pressure
  • The impact of surcharge loads on retaining walls
  • How to check retaining walls for the four basic modes of instability

This course, as a part of the Geotechnical Engineering Series, covers basic theories, engineering evaluations, design approaches, and practical CQC (construction quality control) procedures for the design and construction of retaining walls. Although the focus of the course is on earth retaining structures for surface transportation facilities, much of the material is applicable to other applications.

This course is applicable to geotechnical, civil, mining, structural, and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design, and construction of earth retaining structures.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • General approach to retaining structure design
  • Types of earth retaining structures
  • Considerations for selection of retaining structure
  • Lateral earth pressures
  • Effect of cohesion on lateral earth pressures
  • Effect of wall friction and wall adhesion on lateral earth pressures
  • Lateral pressure due to water
  • Lateral pressure from surcharge loads
  • Design steps for retaining walls involving bearing capacity, overturning and sliding, global stability, and settlement and tilt
  • Drainage systems for retaining structures
  • Construction monitoring and inspection

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 30 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
