Macan Doroudian, Ph.D., P.E., G.E.

Senior Managing Consultant

Dr. Macan Doroudian has over 20 years of experience in the fields of geotechnical, foundation, and earthquake engineering. He has worked on a broad array of projects including geotechnical and ground motion assessments for earthen dams, stabilization of large landslides, moisture intrusion through slab-on-grade concrete floors, failure analysis of mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls, settlement, soil erosion associated with landfill cover, construction vibration monitoring and damage potential assessment associated with such vibrations, and pipeline failure investigations. Dr. Doroudian has also performed geotechnical engineering analysis for telecommunication facility sites.

In addition, he has extensive laboratory soil testing experience, including the design and fabrication of specialized testing equipment, development of testing protocols, and devising new testing methodologies. This experience includes custom-development of a device for measuring small-strain behavior of soils (a replica is currently used at University of Rome, Italy), development of special equipment for sample preparation from wide-diameter tubes for triaxial testing, and devising special techniques for centrifuge testing of soil-nail excavation models under cyclic loads. He is also experienced in geotechnical field instrumentation for performing measurements including the use of tiltmeters, inclinometers, piezometers, geophones, and seismometers.
