Hi Matt,

Thanks for your blog post. I look forward to hearing about your summer experiences.

Have a great summer!

Great to see you're documenting your experiences, Matt.

I'm curious as to how you are fitting into the landfill design work with your structural background so far. Is there talk of any other type of work you can put your academic knowledge to use for?

Looking forward to following your blog!

There have been a few occasions when I’ve been able to use my structural background in my work. Gas vents are used at some of the landfills and I’ve been analyzing the structural stability of the blocks that enclose them. Also, there’s a transfer station that’s being constructed that I hope to contribute my structural knowledge to. In addition, I’ve been able to use my knowledge in fluid dynamics and soil mechanics in the flow of leachate and the stability of landfill slopes.
