ASCE Texas Student Symposium

March 2-4, 2017 • El Paso, Texas
ASCE Texas Section has re-engineered its Student Symposium to foster close association between engineering professionals and university students. Beginning in 2016, the Symposium combines the two student competitions, steel bridge and concrete canoe, at one event. Students, whether they are contestants or soon-to-graduate, will have the opportunity to attend a series of soft-skill seminars to prepare them for their new careers. The students will learn how to create an excellent resume, interview for a job, plan for their future careers, and how to network. A Texas-wide career fair will give them the opportunity to put this specific learning into play at the Symposium, and employers will have access to exceptional students. The theme for the 2017 Student Symposium is “Building Bridges/Trascendiendo Fronteras.” The symposium includes seminars on sustainability and is focused on soft skills that support the transition from the learning environment to the professional arena. The seminars will be on communication, self-marketing, professional dress, safety, and financial savvy.

Huitt-Zollars

Banquet Sponsor
n an era when all professional service firms looked alike, a desire to create a business culture that made the focus on integrity, quality, and client satisfaction, Huitt-Zollars’ founders knew firsthand that when top-notch people work in a quality environment on great projects, everyone wins. The idea was born from a friendship that began in the late 1960’s. While working for the same engineering firm early in their careers, Larry Huitt, a now-retired structural engineer, and Robert Zollars, a civil engineer, became respected colleagues. Although they pursued different career paths, their shared business values and mutual desire to create an unmatched culture soon brought them together.
In establishing the firm in 1975, they committed to a set of operating principles that continue to be the backbone of the company. Today, Huitt-Zollars’ core values are inherent in its people, projects, process, and philosophy.
From day one, the company has followed this vision and has grown into one of the most respected firms in the United States. Nineteen offices nationwide, three international offices, consistent repeat business, a growing portfolio of work and recognition via numerous awards and honors attest to the company’s reputation. We continue to earn some of the nation's most challenging projects and attract the best talent.

Water Management Infrastructure: Asset and Risk Management for Dams and Levees

01:00 PM 02:00 PM El Paso Room BCDE

Dams and levees are vital components of American’s infrastructure providing water supply, hydropower, flood control, navigation, recreation, and other benefits. Owner, operators, and regulators of these structures have the responsibility for maintaining this infrastructure in order to sustain public benefits as well as to protect the public and the environment.
Dam and levee safety programs have been established to manage the risks associated with the operations and performance of critical water management infrastructure. Traditionally, these safety programs include provisions for technical quality of operations, maintenance, inspections, repairs, and rehabilitation. Recently, the practice has moved toward the use potential failure modes analysis and risk assessments to evaluate and prioritize these structures. Risk informed decisions for these significant capital investments have proven effective for prioritizing repairs, and/or modifications of components such as earthen embankments, concrete dams, spillways, outlet works, and various hydraulic structural steel (HSS) gate systems.
Failure modes are typically related to the hydrologic & hydraulic loading, the site & subsurface soil and groundwater conditions, and/or deterioration of the structural components or prime facilities. Loading conditions can be changed from the original design based on upstream development, which can result in overtopping of the embankment with potential for surface erosion failure. Seepage and internal erosion of soil materials in the embankment or foundation can result in a stability failure. Drainage is crucial for controlling or reducing seepage in embankments and concrete gravity sections, in order to minimize potential of stability failure. Deterioration and damage of concrete & steel components can also result in failure of the infrastructure, and should be repaired and replaced to provide an effective service life.
In order to evaluate these failure modes, the design details of the structure are compiled and reviewed to determine if additional hydrologic or field investigations are required to define existing conditions. The design flood data is used to evaluate hydrologic capacity to assess overtopping potential. Areas of higher vulnerability, such as along conduits, and embankment/abutment contacts are identified and evaluated. Field investigation techniques such as test borings and geophysics are typically used to characterize the subsurface conditions, and instruments are often installed to monitor water pressures within the embankment and foundation, as well as for monitoring structure movement.
Construction records and details are crucial for assessing poor foundation conditions such as highly fractured and/or weathered rock, and karsts. Laboratory testing is used to define material properties for conducting seepage and stability evaluations using modelling techniques, which include finite element and finite difference modeling. This modeling is used to evaluate the global stability and hydraulic integrity of the structure based on the defined site conditions. Remediation typically requires a means to either reduce and/or collect seepage and mitigate against internal erosion. This typically involves the construction of internal drain/filter systems and/or seepage cutoffs. Concrete and steel components are repaired and replaced, based on operational condition.
This session will focus on the practices being used by owners, operators, and regulators to sustain the dams and levees used for managing our Nation’s water resources. Details will be provided for operations, inspection, maintenance, and risk mitigation activities that are being used to identify and assess risks associated operation of water management infrastructure. Case studies will be provided for a variety of potential failure modes, along with proven solutions for water resource sustainability.
