David J. Kerkes, Ph.D., P.E.

Consulting Geotechnical (Civil) Engineer

With over thirty years of international experience in design and construction, I provide consulting services and litigation support in a broad variety of geotechnical areas.   I am also an experienced engineering educator, having taught university level graduate and undergraduate courses, as well as a continuing education course nationally for the American Society of Civil Engineers.

In addition to information on my expertise and experience, my web site also contains some of the articles I have written along with a few design tools I prepared, available to interested parties at no cost, which I hope will be of value to practicing engineers.
