Professional Profile

A Geotechnical Engineer with over 38 years of experience in geotechnical engineering, including extensive forensic consulting experience in the performance and supervision of hundreds of subsidence evaluations throughout the state of Florida and in selected areas of central Tennessee. Specific tasks associated with subsidence evaluations have included development of strategies and specifications to restore the foundation subgrade support below numerous structures located above confirmed sinkhole activity conditions, serving as the engineer in responsible charge, and supervision of subsurface remediation operations, including the installation of supplemental support systems. His experience also includes development of strategies to pre-treat geologic sinkhole conditions in preparation for development and direction of emergency response to active sinkhole events that have threatened structures. He has provided expert witness testimony, both in deposition and at trial, related to subsidence issues. This consultant has provided services and advice as part of litigation support services and has performed peer review of studies performed by other consultants. Mr. Eduardo has extensive experience in difficult subsurface conditions, including assessment of strip mine reclamation deposits and foundation design in reclaimed strip mined areas, and ground improvement in cohesive mine tailings deposits. Recent forensic experience has included assessment of landslide events and embankment failure events. His areas of expertise include soil mechanics, foundation evaluation and design, deep soil improvement design, pavement evaluation and design, earth embankment design and inspection, ground water flow engineering, geologic hazard assessment, geologic hazard mitigation design, and construction materials testing.
