Amusement Park - Ride Support Engineering


Amusement Parks ‘purchase’ rides from ride manufacturers, but there is a LOT more that goes into erecting a new ride than just the purchase.  

Amusement Parks require a lot of engineering in order to plan a ride’s layout, design its foundations, provide ride support structures, and obtain State approvals.  We call these services ‘Ride Support Engineering’ and have been providing these type of specialty engineering services for over 25 years.  This presentation gives a  walkthrough the ‘local engineering’ aspects of amusement rides, including design and construction considerations.

Richard Maloney, PE is a Structural Engineer, with more than 25 years experience providing local engineering services for over 100 amusement rides in theme parks nationwide. He has provided structural and other local engineering services for 5 out of the roller coasters listed in Time Magazine's "Top Ten Roller coasters in the US" list. A graduate of Villanova University (BS) and the University of Notre Dame (MS), Mr. Maloney is currently employed at Maser Consulting, P.A. a firm with over 850 employees and offices nationwide.

Route 37 Mathis Bridge over Barnegat Bay


Presented by: Rama Krishnagiri, PE; Rishi Rishindran, PE; Steve Esposito, PE; and George Zimmer, WSP USA

This presentation will discuss the design and construction aspects of the major rehabilitation of the approximately mile long viaduct carrying Eastbound NJ 37 over the Barnegat Bay. NJ 37 links the mainland to beach communities in Seaside Heights and is a major evacuation route. Three Eastbound lanes are carried by the 66-span, 60-year old movable bridge. The seasonal construction for this $60 Million rehabilitation includes one of NJ’s largest precast Exodermic decking undertakings, elastomeric and pot bearings, improved traffic lanes, movable bridge safety features, customized resistance barrier gates and warning gates, substructure repair and a major Electrical/Mechanical rehabilitation. The eastern 21 piers suffered major scour damage in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in 2012, and Emergency scour retrofit measures were installed and are performing well.

FE Mock Exam

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, also referred to as the Engineer in Training (EIT) exam, and formerly in some states as the Engineering Intern (EI) exam, is the first of two examinations that engineers must pass in order to be licensed as a Professional Engineer in the United States. The exam is open to anyone with a degree in engineering or a related field, or currently enrolled in the last year of an ABET-accredited engineering degree program.

ASCE Central Jersey Branch's Younger Member Group is pleased to offer this special opportunity to prepare through a Mock Exam opportunity.

Characterizing and Mitigating Flood Risk for New York City

"Characterizing and Mitigating Flood Risk for New York City"
Presented by Philip Orton, Ph.D., Stevens Institute of Technology

New York City and its neighboring New Jersey Harbor shorelines have many low-lying areas highly susceptible to flooding, particularly as sea levels continue to rise in the coming decades.  Dr. Orton will present recent results of recent work with the New York City Panel on Climate Change where they utilized hydrodynamic modeling to map tidal-monthly and extreme storm-driven flooding.  These same models are powerful tools that can be modified for experiments to test flood risk reduction measures. Dr Orton will also present and discuss results of evaluations of nature-based flood adaptation strategies and gated storm surge barrier systems similar to those being evaluated in the US Army Corps of Engineers' ongoing Harbor and Tributaries study.

Dr. Philip Orton is a research assistant professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, holding a PhD in physical oceanography from Columbia University. He has published over 35 peer-reviewed articles on coastal physical oceanography, storm surges, flood risk assessment, air-sea interaction, sediment transport, and coastal meteorology. He is a member of the NYC Panel on Climate Change and contributed to NYC’s adaptation planning after Hurricane Sandy, working with NYC on the Special Initiative on Rebuilding and Resilience, and as a member of the winning Living Breakwaters team for Rebuild By Design.

Technical Dinner: "Ethics"

Be sure you have your ethics credits for PE license renewal!

Join us for a Technical Dinner Presentation on "Ethics" for Engineers

When: February 20, 2018

Where: Forsgate Country Club; Monroe Township - NJ

"Ethics Jeopardy"

Presented by Ted Green, PE
Engineering Project Manager
New Jersey Local Technical Assistance Program (NJLTAP)
ASCE Regional Governor

Obeying the law is what we have to do. Behaving ethically is what we ought to do, but not necessarily have to. This leads to a dilemma all engineers must deal with on a daily basis. Ethical decision making is one of the chief responsibilities of leaders in any profession. This presentation, based in part on a well-known television game show will engage you in an interactive discussion on engineering ethics by utilizing the ethics canons of various engineering professional societies as they relate to situations civil engineers often experience. In addition, case studies will be utilized to provide group discussions on how you may manage the situation at hand.
