Jed Greenwood

Jed, who has 20 years of geotechnical engineering experience, has worked extensively on the investigation and design of tailings dams for U.S. and Canadian mining clients and on flood-protection levees and dams for municipalities. His projects have ranged from design and analysis of levees, floodwalls, and dams to forensic analysis of landslides and seepage analysis and stabilization measures for natural and constructed slopes. He has also analyzed slopes for open-pit mines around the world. 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.
