Dr. Anderson has worked on the design and construction of various types of wharf facilities throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, and Ecuador. This work has included design of driven and drilled pile foundations, breakwater and wharf embankment stability analyses, dredging studies, pile installation monitoring, pile-load testing, instrumentation, and ground improvement. Most of the projects included seismic design. Don has been actively involved in the development of seismic ground motion design requirements in the 2012 International Building Code (IBC), 2010 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 7-10, the 2009 National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), and 2009 American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide Specifications for Seismic Bridge Design. He recently participated in a Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Center project to update site factors used in IBC and AASHTO.
