After Hurricane Harvey swamped the Houston area in August, the need to build resiliency in the face of flooding in Texas communities intensified. Going forward, civil engineering (and especially geotechnical engineering) will be a key component in building this resiliency to storm events.
Nearly 20 years ago, Eustis Engineering provided stability analyses (using the analysis program UTEXAS for the first time) for an improvement project to Houston's Sims Bayou. The bayou stayed within its banks during Hurricane Harvey. As Texas rebuilding continues, officials will look to projects such as these for ways to build resiliency. Read the article here.
