Wayne graduated Summa Cum Laude (with highest honors) with a B.S. of Civil Engineering from Auburn University and is a member of several national engineering honor societies. His contributions to the concrete industry were recognized by Concrete Construction magazine, and he was selected as one of the most influential people in the concrete industry. He has over 35 years of professional experience in the structural design of commercial, industrial, and military projects in the U.S. and in other countries. Many of his projects have won first place awards from ACI and other organizations for their cutting-edge and economical solutions to his client’s requirements.

 

Wayne has published numerous papers in national and international publications on the design and construction of concrete floor slabs and pavements, plus other structural elements. He has also developed numerous cutting-edge computer programs to analyze and design slabs-on-ground, pavements and other structures. His computer programs for slabs-on-ground analyze and design for the applied loads, subgrade drag forces, curling, thermal, non-linear response of the soil, and varying degrees of shear transfer at the joints. He has also developed computer programs to analyze and design suspended floors for impact and vibrating loading.

 

Wayne is a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute. He has been a speaker at ACI and ASCE seminars, Chair of ACI Committee 360 Design of Concrete Slabs-on-Ground, and is a member of ACI 302 Construction of Concrete Floors.
