    FRP Pile Repair Project: 30%

    Grades:

    A= 90% and over

    B= 80-89%

    C= 60-79%

    D= 50-59%

    F= below 50%

    G. Assignments, Exams and Tests

    Two Repair Methods Will Be Covered:

    Conventional Repair

    - Concrete Behavior

    - Concrete Evaluation

    - Surface Repair

    - Strengthening and Stabilization

    - Protection

    - Case Studies

    FRP Repair

    - FRP Basics

    - Materials

    - Recommended Construction Requirements

    - Design Recommendation

    - Design Examples

    - Case Studies

    Assignments:

    The majority of assignments will require classroom presentations based on a review of the literature. ASCE has several journals that contain relevant papers, e.g. Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities, Composites for Construction, Bridge Engineering. Students will be given considerable freedom to select a topic.

    H. Attendance Policy

    USF Policy on Religious Observances: “ Students who anticipate the necessity of being absent from class due to the observation of a major religious observance must provide notice of the date(s) to the instructor, in writing, by the second class meeting.”

    I. Policy on Make-up Work

    "Plagiarism is defined as “literary theft” and consists of the unattributed quotation of the exact

    words of a published text, or the unattributed borrowing of original ideas by paraphrase from a

    published text. On written papers for which the student employs information gathered from books, articles, or oral sources, each direct quotation, as well as ideas and facts that are not generally known to the public at large, or the form, structure, or style of a secondary source must be attributed to its author by means of the appropriate citation procedure. Only widely known facts and first-hand thoughts and observations original to the student do not require citations. Citations may be made in footnotes or within the body of the text. Plagiarism, also, consists of passing off as one’s own, segments or the total of another person’s work."

    J. Program This Course Supports
