Dr. George Kantrales joined PEC as a Senior Associate Engineer in September 2016. George holds two undergraduate degrees—one in mathematics (University of Florida), and one in civil engineering (University of South Alabama). In addition, George also holds a master’s degree (Auburn University) and a PhD (University of Florida) in civil engineering. George’s doctoral work at the University of Florida concentrated on barge impact loading on bridge structures. As part of this work, George performed large-scale impact testing, finite element analysis, and statistical analysis to formulate proposed revisions to existing AASHTO barge-bridge impact design methods. George has experience with LS-DYNA and MatLab analysis tools, and will be supporting PEC and our clients on both research and design efforts. Contact George at 512-380-1988 x322 or
