Geotechnical Engineering Expert Witnesses

As an offshoot of civil engineering, Geotechnical engineering can be applied across multiple engineering disciplines, as well as within the areas of mining, petroleum, and the military. Geotechnical Engineering focuses on with engineering performance of earth materials. Engineers in this engineering field are responsible for a structure’s foundation, assessing field data, designing and finding ways to assure the stability of building foundations, and overseeing work on a construction site. Geotechnical engineering experts are often retained to consult and testify on a wide range of issues that include earthquakes, landslides, production trucks, roads, dams, mining, and more. Our Geotechnical engineering experts have worked as engineers, safety managers, consultants, structural analysts, hazardous waste professionals, professors, to name a few. These experts specialize in:

  • Computer modeling
  • Civil engineering materials
  • Retaining wall and slope design
  • Water resources
  • Hydrogeology
  • Foundation design
  • Underground construction
  • Structural engineering
  • Soil mechanics
  • Grading
  • Landfills
  • Quality assurance manuals
  • Failure investigation
  • Geophysics
  • Sinkholes
  • Earthquakes
With hundreds of years of experience, our Geotechnical engineering experts have successfully testified for both plaintiffs and defense in a variety of cases and are prolific international authors and lecturers. Their published works span topics that include Micromechanics of heterogeneous materials, structural modeling, quarry impacts, GIS technology, dam safety, auger cast pile failure, deep foundation design and construction, wave propagation, and predicting vibrations.
