Marino Engineering Associates

With over 33 years of experience, MEA’s staff has provided services across the entire scope of geotechnical engineering and mine subsidence engineering. Aspects of geotechnical projects including various shallow and deep foundation systems, design of all types of retaining structures, numerical (Finite Element) 2D and 3D seepage, as well as soil-structure interaction analyses, sophisticated slope stability analyses, and rock engineering.

In the areas of mining and subsidence engineering, MEA has serviced over 100 major mining projects, site subsidence studies, mine stability design and failure analyses. In addition MEA has worked extensively in the areas of prediction of subsidence displacement and damage potential, subsidence damage evaluation, repair design, and mine grouting design and monitoring. Being foremost in this field, MEA’s staff has authored over 80 publications on related topics and has worked in coal fields across the U.S. »

Project Investigation Bulletins

Issue #30

Risk Based Analysis Results in Efficient Mine Stabilization

Two separate levels of old coal workings were stabilized because of the potential hazards to an exisiting commercial building if either mine were to fail. »

Issue #28

Forensic Investigation of Airport Hangar Subgrade/Subbase

Often times, construction subbase/subgrade issues are not sufficiently addressed in the plans and specifications. Foresight into pavement preparation constructibility issues during design can significantly mitigate disputes, claims, delays and the final cost, especially with respect to large projects. »

Issue #14 (reprint)

Establishing Mine Subsidence Risk

The assessment of the risk of mine subsidence related damage above underground coal mines is the most critical and driving factor for land development. Only about 50% of the undermined sites investigated for mine subsidence by MEA were found to have significant risk. »
