CLE Presentation – Evansville Bar Association @ Evansville Bar Association
Aug 28 all-day
Dr. Gennaro G. Marino, P.E., D.GE will be presenting “Expert Forensic Engineering Investigations ” on Thursday, August 29th, 2019 for the Evansville Bar Association.The objective of this presentation is to provide attendees an understanding of all the components of expert forensic engineering investigations from an expert’s perspective. With such an understanding, attorneys involved in cases will have better control and efficiency in processing such cases. The presentation will include review of the various elements of how an engineering failure can occur and how to proceed in investigating and prosecuting such cases. Key case examples which the author was intimately involved in will be introduced to illustrate and provide clarity to important concepts. Although the focus of the cases presented here is geotechnical engineering in nature, many of the concepts or principles disseminated through these cases would be applicable to prosecuting other expert engineering or forensic cases. Also, at the end of the presentation, some advices are provided from an expert’s perspective.

NAAMLP – Philadelphia @ Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh
Sep 9 @ 11:00 pm – Sep 10 @ 12:00 am
Dr. Gennaro G. Marino, P.E., D.GE will be presenting “Mine Subsidence Engineering: An Overview” on September 9th, 2019 at the 41st Annual NAAMLP Conference.This presentation covers key aspects of mine subsidence engineering, a subject that is not well understood, and embraces a number of engineering disciplines. It focuses on the causes of mine subsidence and how mine stability relates to the resulting ground movements. Different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement. Prediction of subsidence and damage potential are also key aspects of subsidence engineering. Examples of expected subsidence damage as well as mine stabilization will be shown. This presentation will be presented in a manner that will be understandable to anyone that would be interested in learning more about mine subsidence.

ISPE Boot Camp – Springfield @ Northfield Inn Springfield
Oct 1 – Oct 4 all-day
Dr. Gennaro G. Marino, P.E., D.GE will be presenting “Geoforensics for Engineers” at the ISPE Boot Camp in Springfield, IL. Exact dates and times for this presentation will be released soon!This presentation will provide an overview of what constitutes a geoforensics investigation. In addition to providing a basic to detailed definition of geoforensics, the presentation will summarize components of a forensic investigation and the varied causation components to the failure or problem. Each component will be discussed in detail with salient examples of actual case histories the presenter has investigated.Although case histories discussed are geotechnical in nature, the principles are directly applicable to civil engineering problems. In performing geoforensic investigations, the standard of what “a reasonable degree of engineering certainty” means will be discussed. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of lessons learned based on the presenter’s experience.
