This course provides information important to the design of foundations used in coastal areas. The design methodology comes from FEMA's Coastal Construction Manual (CCM) and has been developed from studying failures after numerous coastal storms. Flood loads are developed using both ASCE 7 and the CCM and applied to pile supported structures. Other flood effects such as erosion and scour are covered. Pile design is discussed as well as bracing methods used in pile systems. An example of how to calculate flood loads and how to apply them to the foundation at a coastal location is included to help provide context on the method and magnitude of the loads.

I like Mr. Coulbourne's courses but his answers to multiple choice questions do not reflect comments or information provided in his presentation, or more than one of the responses is in his presentation as alternatives, or the information is missing entirely. Because the test is essential for CEU's it's more than annoying. As well as expensive.
