  • As populations in cities grow, natural ground cover is being replaced with impervious surface cover that, in turn, is causing an increase in stormwater runoff. The need to successfully manage and mitigate the harmful effects of stormwater runoff is becoming clear. This course discusses how permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) offers solutions for stormwater management, including mitigating runoff volumes, decreasing peak flow, reducing flooding potential, and decreasing stream bank erosion. Pavement components, design considerations, and pavement maintenance are also examined.

  • Retaining walls resist the lateral displacement of soil or other materials, and their long-term performance is dependent on proper design and construction. This course focuses on the segmental retaining wall (SRW), a type of mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall. Presented here are SRW types and components, advantages over other retaining wall systems, design considerations, and construction tolerances, as well as reasons that SRWs fail.
