512-380-1988 x335

Alfred Meau joined Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) as an Associate Engineer I in January of 2022. Alfred completed his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering at Lafayette College and obtained a master’s degree in Structural Engineering and Materials from Virginia Tech (VT). While at VT, Alfred worked on a research project to analyze the response of steel beams with reduced web sections (RWS) subjected to blast loads. As a part of this work, Alfred developed resistance functions incorporating flexure and shear deformations of the RWS. Additionally, he performed both single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) analysis and finite element analysis (FEA) to understand the influence of introducing web openings on the strength, ductility, and mode shape of RWS members.

At PEC, Alfred is a part of our Advanced Technology + Research group. He is experienced in the use of various computation tools (e.g. Mathcad, MATLAB), as well as analysis tools (e.g. SAP2000, ETABS, RCBlast, ANSYS, Abaqus).

Alfred will be providing PEC and our clients with technical support on advanced analysis, applied research, and protective design projects. He can be contacted at 512-380-1988 x 335 or
