CEE 405: Asphalt Materials I

  • View CEE 405 Lecture
  • View CEE 405 Lab
  • View CEE 405 Field Trip
  • Instructor: Bill Buttlar
  • Course Description: This course covers properties and control testing of bituminous materials, aggregates for bituminous mixtures, and analysis and design of asphalt concrete and liquid asphalt cold mixtures; structural properties of bituminous mixes; surface treatment design; and recycling of mixtures.
  • Prerequisites: A course in Transportation Engineering (CEE 310).

CEE 421: Construction Planning

  • View CEE 421 Lecture
  • Instructor: Khaled A. El-Rayes
  • Course Description: Project definition; scheduling and control models; material, labor, and equipment allocation; optimal schedules; project organization; documentation and reporting systems; management and control are studied in this course.
  • Prerequisites: A course in Construction Engineering (CEE 320).

CEE 453: Urban Hydrology and Hydraulics

  • View CEE 453 Lecture
  • Instructor: Art Schmidt
  • Course Description: This is an intermediate-level course on hydrology and hydraulics relating to drainage of surface water. Although much of the emphasis is on runoff from urbanized or urbanizing areas, the principles and tools learned in this course will be useful for any drainage problem. The goal is for you to learn hydrologic and hydraulic analysis tools useful for solving today’s surface drainage problems - analysis tools that can be used for the structural approach of design and build, and the nonstructural approach of planning, operation, and management. Covered materials range from traditional procedures to new developments near the forefront of the technology.
  • Prerequisites: Students should have a basic hydrologic and hydraulic background equivalent to undergraduate courses in Water Resources Engineering and Introductory Fluid Mechanics.

CEE 470: Structural Analysis

  • View CEE 470 Lecture
  • Instructor: Carlos Duarte
  • Course Description: This course covers direct stiffness method of structural analysis; fundamentals and algorithms; numerical analysis of plane trusses, grids and frames; virtual work and energy principles; finite element method for plane stress and plane strain.
  • Prerequisites: A course in Structural Engineering (CEE 360).
