Geotechnical Engineering Expert in Soil Stability
A geotechnical engineering expert in soil stability was needed for a patent infringement case. The technology in question provides for a polymeric substance which increases the load bearing capacity of soil primarily for construction purposes. Both companies provided road construction services to the Department of Transportation (DOT) in which soil stability was crucial.
IMS ExpertServices was aked to locate a geotechnical engineering expert with experience working with soils engineering technologies. The expert was needed to consult on the load bearing capacity of soil in construction as applicable to numerous types of structures such as buildings and houses, towers and storage tanks, fills, embankments, and dams. Geotechnical engineering is the branch of civil engineering concerned with the engineering behavior of earth materials.
