 Construction management: Road construction course

This course is designed to expand your practical side of engineering knowledge. This course is concentrating on the construction of roads. Here you will learn how the road is constructed. The construction stages such as protection of existing services, clearing the area, future utilities, preparing the road subgrade, then placing different pavement layers such as sub-base, base course, and asphaltic courses. We will also discuss the types of asphaltic course and the common defects of asphaltic pavement, such as permanent deformation, fatigue cracking, and low-temperature cracking. Also, I will show a typical cross-section of road and road profiles and many other subjects.

Pile foundation design

This course will discuss the design of pile foundations. We will learn the methods of calculating the pile bearing capacity. The bearing capacity for a pile consists of skin and end bearing resistance. Here you will understand how to calculate the skin and end bearing resistance. Also, we will discuss the effects of the pile group on pile individual bearing capacity. We will determine the impact of pile group on individual pile bearing capacity and the amount of reduction of pile bearing capacity. We will also discuss the safety factor for pile design and the acceptable ranges for the safety factor and many other interesting subjects.

Construction management: Prestressed concrete technology 

The use of prestressed concrete has_been_increasing sharply in recent years. This increased use of prestressed concrete is attributed to the significant improvements in the properties of the structure. Using prestressed concrete resulted in considerable enhancement of the structure's resistance capacity. Also, prestressing concrete will improve the durability of structures by decreasing or eliminating the service cracks. We will tackle the concept of prestressed concrete. This course is one of the four courses I discussed earlier to help understand the practical side of engineering. This aims to increase your knowledge of how prestressing improve the concrete's properties. You will also understand the benefits and types of prestressed concrete systems and the difference between them and many other interesting subjects.

Construction management: concrete construction

This course is designed to expand your knowledge. in this course, you will learn almost everything about concrete. Concrete is the most used material in construction worldwide. We can find material almost in everything around us. Therefore, we need to understand this material's properties and behavior and the reason behind using it intensively in construction. In this course, we will study the different ingredients of concrete. Also, I will explain the admixture and how various admixtures can alter concrete properties. Recently the use of pozzolans increased sharply. Adding of pozzolans to the concrete mix will enhance concrete properties. We will discuss the different types of pozzolans and their effects on concrete. In this course, you also gain knowledge regarding SCC and fiber reinforced concrete and many other subjects.

Construction management: construction field management 

This course is designed to expand your practical side of engineering knowledge. This course concentrates on the practical side of the construction field. in the field, the construction work will be completed with the contract document's assist such as contract drawing, specification, BOQ, shop drawing, method statement, and inspection test and plan. In this course, you will see samples for different contract documents, and you will know the importance of these documents and how to use it. This course will discuss other important topics, such as NOC. NOC is essential for almost all construction projects, this course identifying the NOC, the importance of NOC, and how to acquire it. Also, we will discuss here trial trenches and boreholes. This course will discuss other important topics such as earthwork, formwork, falsework, concrete, waterproofing, dewatering, reinforcement steel. As a person working in construction, you need to know these topics. In the construction field, you will deal with 90% of these topics. In his course, you will acquire essential practical knowledge. This knowledge will help in managing your construction field. This course will also discuss the supporting of deep excavation and the different methods such as sheet pile, secant piles, and kingpost wall.

Construction management: Bridge Engineering 

Bridges are a crucial part of the traffic system, and it is used mainly to reduce the traffic jam and connect areas where the terrain like rivers and mountains exists. The construction of bridges is essential in modern life to accommodate the massive increase in vehicles. In this course, we will discuss the steps of the construction of the Box Girder Bridge. We will discuss the bridge components such as pilling: method of executing piles and tests used to verify pile quality and ability to transfer the structure load. Also, we will discuss pile caps, piers, and superstructure. We will also discuss the component of the prestressing system, equipment, stressing sequence, and prestressing losses. We will also discuss friction losses and how to obtain the friction coefficient from the friction test at the site. We will discuss the reason behind using bearing, bearing types, bearing component, presetting, articulation of bearings, and tests for bridge bearing. Finally, expansion joints, reasons behind using an expansion joint, types, and the expansion joint component and method of installing the expansion joint.
