Earth Reinforcement Testing

Experience

Experience

Kenneth L. Fishman, Ph.D., P.E.  is the founder of ERTesting and is a geotechnical engineer with more than thirty years of experience. Dr. Fishman has spent the last twenty years implementing test techniques and developing a recommended practice and protocols for evaluation and condition assessment of earth reinforcements. This experience is an outgrowth of his participation on two research projects supported by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), which is a federal research agency affiliated with the National Academy of Sciences.  As a Co-Principal Investigator for NCHRP Project 24-13 he assessed test methods and developed the testing protocols for condition assessment and evaluation of earth reinforcements. More recent research as the Principal Investigator for NCHRP Project 24-28 is to evaluate sources of uncertainty with respect to observations and estimates of metal loss; and the reliability of service lives targeted in design.  As a result of this work, he is familiar with a number of techniques for corrosion monitoring and performance monitoring of earth reinforcements, and is very familiar with the performance history of such systems as documented in the literature.
