    Upcoming Webcast: CH2M Fairhurst Joint Venture Helps Make Scottish Highway Design a Reality with the Help of Reality Modeling

     

    CH2M designed a challenging 43 km section of the A9 between Glen Garry and Dalraddy for Transport Scotland.  They relied on Bentley’s OpenRoads technology and ProjectWise among others to overcome the challenging design considerations.  But when it came to communicating their design, CH2M turned to the use of 3D reality modeling to help convey their designs to the public and other non-technical stakeholders who are not used to interpreting technical plans and profile drawings.  Learn how Bentley’s ContextCapture and LumenRT software had a tremendous positive impact on CH2M’s ability to explain their design proposals, especially when addressing resident’s or stakeholder’s concerns about the possible visual impact of the project.

    100-Year Bridges: Design Practices and Performance Benefits of Hot-Dip Galvanized Steel (Archived Webcast)

    Hot-dip galvanizing has been used as a means of corrosion protection for more than 150 years, and new technologies and creative chemistries continue to evolve the coating. As FHWA, state DOTs, and local municipalities strive to build the 100-year bridge, what role does hot‑dip galvanizing play? When best design practices are followed, hot‑dip galvanized steel can provide a sustainable and cost effective 100‑year bridge life.

    This webcast will explore some of the specific design practices to avoid pitfalls such as warpage and distortion and connection points, as well as address new research on galvanized slip critical connections and the final report of the galvanized bolts on the Bay Bridge in Oakland, CA.

    Part 2: Monitoring Dust at California’s Salton Sea: Sensing and Verifying the Effectiveness of Engineering Treatments (Print PDH from the January/February 2016 issue of Informed Infrastructure)

    This PDH looks at an ongoing project taking place at California’s Salton Sea, which demonstrates that using cutting-edge remote sensing techniques to analyze and monitor land surfaces and air quality can be both challenging and fascinating. Formation Environmental (FE) is working with the Imperial Irrigation District and other multi-disciplinary team members in modeling, monitoring, and mitigating the effects of the 2003 agreement that will transfer 303,000 acre-feet of newly conserved water annually from agricultural to urban use.

    Part 1: Southern California’s Shrinking Salton Sea: Mapping, Managing and Mitigating New PM10 Air Pollution Sources (Archived Webcast)

    The Salton Sea Air Quality Program is focused on monitoring and mitigating dust emissions from exposed Salton Sea playa. Remote sensing is a key component of this program, and will be used to map playa surfaces, vegetative cover, and active dust source areas. Learn how satellite, aerial and UAV images all contribute to this effort and how they are being processed using Trimble eCognition image analysis software. The presentation will also discuss dust control pilot projects, such as Surface Roughening, and the remote sensing techniques used to inform design and evaluate dust control effectiveness.

    Part 1: Taking Control of BIM Before it Takes Control of You (Archived Webcast)

    The movement toward building information modeling (BIM) for civil projects is taking hold worldwide. Firms and project managers that have made the leap are reaping rewards by winning new work and managing projects with more efficiency. Owners are making the move to mandate BIM for projects, given better cost controls and improved project quality.
    In this Webcast, our presenters will discuss the ways in which BIM has made an impact, and specifically how project managers can advance their work and their careers with the conceptual, analytical and visionary tools that BIM provides. Our presenter will share some of the rewards they’ve seen that have advanced workflows, and outline the approaches improving their ability to deliver projects more quickly with more control on costs.

    Part 2: Enhancing Collaboration to Improve Steel Building Project Efficiency (Print PDH)

    This linear process obviously calls for a lot of data transmittal, interpretation and recast-ing in different formats — it’s a workflow derived from paper-based practices going back decades. And it’s become apparent that the process fails to capture the savings and efficiencies made possible by modern design practices based on 3-D models.

    Part 1: Structural Steel Fabrication Package: A Paradigm Shift (Archived Webcast)

    The process of preparing the fabrication package for steel buildings has remained essentially unchanged for 30 years. Alternative construction methods like design-build, Integrated Project Delivery, and early fabricator involvement have shortened the delivery of steel to the job site but have not made the process more efficient.
