In addition to academic duties, I did contract work for consultants in Toledo.
The majority of this work was the design of medium
span highway bridges in Ohio. I participated in the design (superstructure and substructure) of approximately 50 bridges.
I have also designed several short span bridges.
I also designed reinforced concrete box culverts for a casting plant in Ohio.
Additionally, with them, we developed and designed many 3-sided concrete culverts. A few were designed with precast foundations.
I also had a grant with NASA-Lewis Research Center in Cleveland in their Wind Energy Projects Office. This managed a program for US DOE concerning large horizontal axis wind turbines. The largest turbine had a 200' diameter two-bladed rotor with a 300' tall tower.
