Structural materials include...
2. Reinforced concrete
3. Masonry (brick)
Structural Engineers design:
California Structural Engrs must design for seismic forces
Structural Engrs often work w/ Architects and Contractors
Large Scale Projects include...
California aqueduct, Central Valley
Smaller scale projects include
Pipeline and valve design
Glen Canyon Dam, Page, Arizona
Safe and efficient movement of both people and goods
Harbors and Ports
Highways, Streets, Roads
Mass Transit Systems
Traffic Engineering: Light timing, traffic flow
Most Urban Planners do not have Civil Engineering backgrounds
Most Urban Planning projects involve Civil Engineering projects: Buildings, roads, bridges
Urban Planning Projects include…
Greenspace (parks) planning
World Trade Center Design Finalists
Roundabout, Santa Barbara
Has evolved into its own separate branch of engineering at many universitiesHSU: Environmental Resources Engineering
Occasionally grouped with Mechanical Engineering, more commonly associated with Civil Engineering
Responsible for controlling, preventing, and eliminating air, water, and land pollution
Projects might include:
Waste water treatment
California’s MTBE dilemma (Methyl-Tertiary-Butyl-Ether)
Air quality control
At one time, Land Surveying was a required course for all engineering majors; Today, it is an elective for Civil Engrs
Responsible for ‘mapping out’ construction sites, locating existing landmarks, establishing boundary lines between properties.
Equipment includes theodolites, transits, levels, Philadelphia rods, surveyor’s chains.
Projects might include:
Constructing topographic maps
Photogrammetry & aerial photography
Usually responsible for construction projects from start to finish, including:
Estimating construction costs
Determining equipment and personnel needs
A typical construction project may involve…
Architects (often head the project)
Civil Engineers, including Structural & Construction
Contractors: (Responsible for actual construction)
Also known as Soils Engineering, involved in:
Coordination with Structural Engineers in large building construction
