CME’s Geotechnical Engineer, Navaratnam Anasthas (Anas), P.E. has been teaching continuing education courses through HalfMoon Education.
Anas’ one-hour Slope Stabilization Techniques course explores common types of earth slopes, slope failure risk assessment, and methods and analysis tools necessary to determine the driving and resisting forces acting on a potential slip plane (or slope).
During the Shallow Foundation Design course, Anas delves into a mix of foundation failures and how to avoid them through a complete analysis of Foundation Design. The goal of this course is to provide a means of transmitting the structural load to the structure’s underlying soils appropriately and without foundation failure or distress.
Anas has had great success in teaching these courses, with attendance anywhere from 35 to 85 people per class. These courses are very informative and provide continuing education credit hours for architects and professional engineers in New York.
