Jeff’s initial efforts with ITI research included assembling Prof. Dowding’s blast vibration literature into a searchable electronic library. After gaining familiarity with the literature, Jeff began to take an active role in analysis of data from ITI’s monitoring sites. He analyzed vibration and settlement data from a structure near a limestone quarry in North Carolina and co-authored a paper describing the results for presentation to the annual meeting of the International Society of Explosives Engineers in February 2009. Jeff also presented a poster on his work at the Northwestern Undergraduate Research Symposium in May 2009.Funded by the Fletcher Family Foundation, the $250 Fletcher Undergraduate Research Grant Awards were presented to three undergraduates and two alumni for research they did this past summer with support from Northwestern Undergraduate Research Grants (URG).
