D.J. Benedetto, Jim Hance and Cory Baldwin

Jim Hance, Senior Project Manager and Vice President (Finance), and Engineering Geologist D. J. Benedetto presented a case study at HxGN LIVE in Las Vegas on 15 June. The presentation focused on a Eustis Engineering project that used nearly real-time geotechnical instrumentation to assess a distressed industrial dock on the Mississippi River. Data collected from the instrumentation are being used to design a permanent solution to stabilize the dock. HxGN LIVE, a conference presented by information technology company Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, explores innovative technologies.

VP participates in leadership panel

Senior Project Manager and Vice President (Finance) Jim Hance, P.E., took part in a Leadership Panel for the ASCE Younger Member Group at CellarDoor on 25 May. The discussion centered on the pros and cons of working at an established company as opposed to entrepreneurship. Sean Walsh, P.E., co-chaired the event, which was attended by co-workers Patrick Thurmond, E.I., and Nick Izzo, E.I.

BOARD CHAIRMAN WILL SPEAK ON DOCK STABILITY STANDARDS

Gwyn, WilliamChairman of the Board Bill Gwyn, P.E., will address standards for the stability of dock structures 27 April at the 2017 ASCE Louisiana Section Spring Conference in Lafayette, Louisiana. His presentation will track how standards have changed for use considerations and permit requirements, using the history of use at the Port of New Orleans as an example of revised riverbank stability requirements. He will also touch on advancements in instrumentation, including real time monitoring of stresses and deflection, which can help verify analyses and manage risk.
