[Live Webinar] Forensic Engineering Applications in Civil Engineering

Intended Audience: Civil & Structure Engineers
Credits: 3 PDH Units
When: Wednesday 3/10. 2 – 5 pm ET

22 STUDENTS ENROLLED

Forensic engineering is broadly defined as the application of the engineering sciences to the investigation of failures or other performance problems. This webinar will discuss the engineering principles involved in the diagnosis of common types of accidents and failures and will include discussion of the latest technologies used by forensic engineers.

The webinar begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of forensic engineering and how the failure investigation and forensic analysis process works. Instruction is provided regarding the technical reporting required and how to prepare for court as an expert witness.

Structural and construction case studies will be included in this webinar and will be the basis for a discussion on professional integrity, ethics and the legal aspects of engineering.

The subject matter of this webinar is appropriate for both those with little to no experience in the field of forensics and those with some experience in the field.

Date:  Wednesday.  March 10.  Starts: 2 – 5 pm ET
Credits: 3 PDH Units

Learning Objectives:

At the successful conclusion of this webinar, you will learn the following knowledge and skills:

  • The causes and types of failures
  • The investigation process and how the legal system affects that investigation
  • Steps involved in conducting failure studies
  • Details of famous structural and construction failure cases
  • Essential lessons from previous mistakes and ways to avoid them and/or minimize their impact

  1. 4

    This was a very good course. There was a lot of material to cover and we ran out of time, but it was interesting and interactive. The case studies were particularly worthwhile.

  2. An Outstanding Course

    5

    Although I’ve been a PE for 40 years, this is my first exposure to Forensic Engineering. Dr. Al Nara taught me a lot about this field. I hope to take other courses of his.

  3. 5

    Good course very informative.

  4. Lots of info, ore time needed to focus on analysis

    3

    A lot of the presentation was obvious points about observing and preparing a report, but some was covered too quickly. I took 12 pages of written notes and had trouble just making the important notes. Cover key points more thoroughly to get points across.

  5. Forensic Engineering

    3

    I’m an experienced Professional Engineer and would have liked to see more up to date examples of cause and effect failures not ones from 40 years ago.

  6. FORENSIC ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS IN CIVIL ENGINEERING

    3

    PROVIDED A GOOD OUTLINE OF VARIOUS ASPECTS OF FORENSIC ENGINEERING AND PROVIDED SOME GOOD INFORMATION ABOUT SOME KEY AND WELL KNOWN BUILDING FAILURES AND PROBLEMS.

    I DO WISH HE HAD DISCUSSED THE PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE FAILURE IN THE FORT LAUDERDALE AREA.

  7. Its only 30 minutes into the webinar, its a 3 hour webinar. The webinar is designed for both beginners and experienced engineers, need to cover the basics first.

  8. Forensic Engineering Applications in Civil Engineering

    2

    This webinar is obviously designed for those who are not aware of forensic engineering. The presenter is focused on defining forensic engineering and is not presenting any information on investigation and applications of forensic analysis in civil engineering. This webinar is not for experienced forensic engineers who want to broaden their knowledge of the field of forensic analysis.
