Senior geotechnical engineers Jed Greenwood and Mike Haggerty presented at the University of Minnesota 65th Annual Geotechnical Engineering Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota. Jed’s presentation (pictured below) was titled Development and Application of an Automated Model Calibration Procedure for Two Case Histories: Tailings Basin and Landslide Repair and he spoke about the automated model calibration procedure developed at Barr that allows us to better match our geotechnical models with instrumentation and monitoring field data. The title of Mike’s presentation was Repair of the West River Parkway Slope Failure and he discussed the field investigation, analysis, design, and construction of the West River Parkway slope repair, which recently received a 2017 Engineering Excellence Grand Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Minnesota.
