Summary

An integral part of our wind and snow engineering and supplementary-damping practices, Scott brings three decades of engineering expertise to his work with RWDI clients. Scott is a versatile engineer whose capabilities, though most strongly focused in wind and snow, extend to structural motion and thermal processes. In addition to his direct work with clients in support of their building-performance objectives, Scott is a key contributor to RWDI’s R&D work, conducting intensive research involving boundary layer wind tunnels, wind loads on solar arrays and water tunnel modeling capabilities for snow studies.
