Waste Containment Design and Performance

Assignments usually include static and seismic slope stability evaluations for lateral and vertical expansions, forensic studies, effect of elevated temperatures on engineering components, permit applications for new facilities including subsurface investigation, settlement, hydrostatic uplift, blasting, shallow and deep stability, bearing capacity, liquefaction and seismic stability, and liner performance analyses, and expert testimony for siting applications.
