  1. These are both poorly posed questions, as pointed out by the OP. For the first, the deflection equations are indeed valid for for elastic behavior only. So, faced with such a question, especially in the AM, one would be forced to play mind games and second guessing such as 'Could they be really getting into the elastic to plastic transition for a mere AM question'? I always thought the explanation to the second question was half-baked. Lateral torsional buckling is not pure torsion, it is only named so (poor choice) because when the compression flange wants to buckle sideways while the tension flange doesn't, it looks like the beam section is subject to a torsional moment. The argument 'a closed section is more resistant to torsion', while true, is not a good justification for their chosen answer.
  2. This post has all relevant information about the PE (Civil) Review Course to be given August - October 2019. The start date is August 8, 2019. 1. The first 9 lectures (out of 21) of the course will be devoted to AM (breadth) topics, and the following 11 lectures will be devoted to the 5 depth areas. Emphasis will be on problem solving in all the sessions. Approximately 20 problems will be discussed in a typical 3-hour session. 2. Lecture 21 will serve as a capstone review session where ‘last minute’ questions from all 5 subject areas will be discussed. This session will also allow us to address queries about the end-of-course practice exam which will be sent out a week before this session. This has the potential to become a student-led session, where the class participants ask questions (either broad subject based, or specific question based), to be addressed by the instructor. 3. The cost to enroll in the 63-hour course is $900. The anticipated start date is Thursday August 8, 2019 and the last lecture is scheduled for Thursday October 17, 2019. The PE exam is Friday October 25, 2019. 4. Candidates who are unsuccessful in the PE exam (the one administered immediately following the conclusion of the review sessions) are welcome to attend the next course sessions at no charge. The features of the highly successful course that remain unchanged are: 1. All lectures taught by Dr. Indranil Goswami, who has taught the PE Review for over 15 years. In that time, there have been over 500 successes at an overall passing rate over 75% 2. Course delivery is via live online WEBINARS. The meeting time is Tuesdays and Thursdays 6 pm – 9 pm Eastern Standard Time. Lecture 1 is a Tuesday. So is Lecture 21, which is a capstone review. 3. Lectures will be recorded and archived on Youtube. Lecture videos are uploaded within 2 hours of completion of the live lecture. Lectures are archived for the duration of the course. Never miss a lecture! 4. Approximately 600 pages of course notes (PDF) are shared with students upon registration. With early registration, you can start your personal review ahead of the course start (recommended). 5. Approximately 300 practice problems (PDF). These are organized into 10 sets – one AM and one PM set or each subject. These are also shared with students upon registration.

  7. I've gotta say, that's the most excitement generated by anything I have ever written.
  8. https://www.amazon.com/Breadth-Exam-2016-Indranil-Goswami/dp/1539098494/
  9. A new 40 question practice (breadth only) exam written by Indranil Goswami will become available on Amazon around September 30th, 2016. Questions are all different from previously published (2012, 2014 and 2015) practice exams. They are also consistent with the latest official NCEES syllabus.
  10. The next course taught by Dr. Indranil Goswami starts August 16th. 21 lectures, each 3 hours covers breadth and depth topics. Online webinars. Lectures are recorded and archived. Early bird ($100 off) deadline is July 1. Practice exam at end of course. Inquire at civilpereview@gmail.com
  11. For those in the Stream Restoration business, what are your thoughts on Rosgen's Stream Classification and Restoration philosophy? I am self-admittedly ignorant on the matter and am just scratching the surface and would find it instructive to get feedback from those who do this on a regular basis.
  12. @ptatohedNo need to delete this thread. It is still a good problem and it may even be a good 'heads up' that even though extremely rare, slight ambiguities may remain in questions.
  13. It was not right to call 0.00085 as the Hazen Williams constant (which is typically around 100). And since it had no units, it should be interpreted as the relative roughness (eps/D), rather than as the absolute roughness (as your solution shows). If relative roughness = 0.00085, friction factor is about 0.02 and the head loss is about 25 ft
  14. Check: For depth d = 3.096 ft Top width T = 12 + 2x2x3.096 = 24.384 ft A = 3.096 x 18.192 = 56.322 ft2 A3g = 5.753x106 Q2T = 6.096x106 5% difference Exact answer d = 3.147 ft
