Jed Greenwood

Jed has more than 15 years of geotechnical engineering experience and has worked extensively on the investigation and design of tailings dams for U.S. and Canadian mining clients and flood-protection levees and dams for municipalities. His projects have ranged from the design and analysis of levees, floodwalls, and dams to forensic analysis of landslides to seepage analysis and stabilization measures for natural and constructed slopes. He has also been involved in the analysis of slopes for open-pit mines in North America and internationally. Jed is an expert on the shear strength and compressibility of Lake Agassiz clays and is skilled in numerical modeling using finite-difference and finite-element techniques.
