A Civil Engineering Course by Hamid ElDarwich, Civil Engineerig Philosophy Founder:
Seismic Rehabiliation is the modfication of existing structure to make it more resistant to earthquakes. During the unergrad studies, engineers spend their time learning about the design of buildings rather than maintaining or rehabilitating the existing structure.
In this minicourse, I will cover some the methods that can be used for seismic rehabiliation of Rreinforced Concrete Buildings; this course is meant to be only a basic course because each method I will be covering desevres a whole course on its own; I have summarized the basic concepts about these methods that the engineers need to know in case they are assigned a rehabiliation project.
The methods that will be covered are:
- Base Isolation,
- TMD (Tuned Mass Damper)
- CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) Wrapping
- Steel Jacketing
- Adding New Structural Elements
- Adding Supplemtary Dampers
- Slosh Tanks
Finally, I will provide a comparison between these methods per project basis; this comparison will help the engineer decide when to use this or that method for a specific project.

No matter which role you have in a building construction project, it is vital that you understand the "guts" of a building in order to make a positive impact. For contractors, engineers, architects, real estate developers and facilities managers, it takes years or even decades to learn the materials and systems in a building. The typical source of this education is on-the-job because this material is not taught in schools. Young professionals spend an extraordinary amount of time trying to understand the complexities of a modern building. Every project is different and the materials and systems can change drastically from one building to the next. Time can be better spent by adding value to projects instead of learning terminology and construction sequencing. The lessons in the course have been developed to boil down years of on-the-job training into high-impact, bite-sized classes.

Concrete Technology MCQ Practice Questions (Civil Eng)
Examination Preparation and Interview questions on Concrete Technology Practice questions for Civil Engineering
Created by Manu Mitra - Software Analyst
Students: 384, Price: $19.99
Students: 384, Price: Paid
Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens (cures) over time. In the past limebased cement binders were often used, such as lime putty, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement or with Portland cement to form Portland cement concrete (for its visual resemblance to Portland stone). Many other non-cementitious types of concrete exist with different methods of binding aggregate together, including asphalt concrete with a bitumen binder, which is frequently used for road surfaces, and polymer concretes that use polymers as a binder.
When aggregate is mixed with dry Portland cement and water, the mixture forms a fluid slurry that is easily poured and molded into shape. The cement reacts with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses. Often, additives (such as pozzolans or superplasticizers) are included in the mixture to improve the physical properties of the wet mix or the finished material. Most concrete is poured with reinforcing materials (such as rebar) embedded to provide tensile strength, yielding reinforced concrete.
These questions will give you basic idea for Examination Preparation and/or interview on Concrete Technology Practice questions for Civil Engineering.
These questions are only for practice and understanding level of knowledge only. It is not necessary that these questions may or may not appear for examinations and/or interview questions
In this practice test, because of large amount of questions (around 234 questions) some of questions may have repeated
I had to put as 70% pass rate because there may also be wrong answers from my side.

RFEM is a powerful 3D FEA program helping structural engineers meet requirements in modern civil engineering. Efficient data input and intuitive handling facilitate modeling of simple and large structures.
The structural analysis program RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.
Intuitive Graphical User-Interface
A structure is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs or by using tables. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects. The user interface is operated intuitively. Therefore the model and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.

Students: 3, Price: Paid
This course will teach you how to design a reinforced concrete columns. We will design two type of columns namely:
This course will guide you through how to use ACI-318 code to properly design the columns. We will also know the requirements we should follow when designing columns like the maximum spacing of the bars, the minimum column dimensions, the percentage of steel which should be needed etc.
Like you all know if you want to become a good structural engineer you should be able to at least design a reinforcement concrete column and because in a structure if a column fail, then the structure fails as well, to prevent this; you should be able to properly design a good reinforce concrete column to avoid failure.
A square column is a column that has all its sizes equal. That is the size of the width and depth of the column is similar. And the stirrup that goes inside the square column as the reinforcement is called a tied stirrup.
A Rectangular column is a column that has the width of the column different from the depth of the column. While the stirrup which is also use a reinforcement for rectangular column is also called a tied stirrup.
A circular column is a column that has a circular dimension which is the diameter. Finally the stirrups that goes inside the circular column as the reinforcement is called the spiral stirrup.
