Jennifer A. Dimig

Senior Associate

 
Experience

Jennifer Dimig is experienced in the investigation, analysis, evaluation, and repair of existing structures. Her projects have involved such structures as bridges, office and warehouse buildings, stadiums, and parking garages and have included conventionally reinforced concrete, post-tensioned concrete, steel, masonry, and wood structural systems.

Much of Ms. Dimig’s work at WJE has consisted of the evaluation of structures to assess conditions related to design deficiencies, construction issues, and deterioration resulting from environmental factors. She has performed numerous computer analyses to model the behavior of existing structures. Ms. Dimig has also worked extensively in the analysis and load rating of steel truss bridges, including the evaluation of gusset plates. In addition, she has performed structural design reviews of new structures, analyzed bridge erection equipment, and conducted laboratory testing of industrial storage rack systems.
