Mr. Bailey supports the structural evaluation and materials teams with detailed field investigations, inspection, and complex failure analysis. He has experience in conducting condition assessments and evaluations for various structural concrete and flooring materials. He employs a wide range of nondestructive techniques such as visual observations, hammer sounding, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), and Ultrasonic Shear Wave Tomography (UST/MIRA). When that isn’t sufficient for the task at hand, he utilizes minimally invasive techniques such as creating inspection openings and taking cores for laboratory testing such as compressive strength testing, chloride content analysis, and petrography. He also provides technical support in litigation disputes regarding underperforming or off-specification materials. Mr. Bailey is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he studied Material Science Engineering.
B.S. in Material Science Engineering, Business Minor, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, 2019
