Design of Utility Infrastructure

Design of Utility Infrastructure

2 hrs. Online Course

Level: Fundamental

Item#: RV-11340AW

SME: Alfredo Cely, P.E., MSEM

Average Rating

4 25
Utilities and their infrastructure are one of the main facilities that support our modern society. From drinking water to telecommunications, underground utilities provide the basic services for our communities. Thus, their design is a critical component of construction projects. Through this interactive online course, engineers, architects, planners and contractors will learn design criteria for the design of different utility types, from gravity to pressurized flow facilities.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Recall the operational needs of the project to size utility lines
  • Identify existing facilities through subsurface utility engineering techniques as described on ASCE 38-02
  • Determine the capacity of existing facilities and how to supplement them
  • Describe key elements for the design of gravity and pressurized flow facilities
  • List available software for the analysis and design of gravity and pressurized flow
  • Specify horizontal and vertical separations between different utility lines
  • List as-built survey requirements when constructing new facilities
