Jason Funk, PhD, PE


Jason Funk joined Shannon & Wilson in 2013 after completing the doctoral program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While at Shannon & Wilson, Jason has had the opportunity to observe a variety of geotechnical construction projects, including installation of deep foundation elements, installation of walls, preparation of subgrade for construction of pavement or spread footings, placement and compaction of fill for a variety of purposes, and construction of seepage panels in Nelson Bennett Tunnel. Jason has performed field testing of micropiles, pin piles, tieback anchors, soil nails, and structural dowels. He has also had the opportunity to perform geotechnical exploration and sampling.

In addition to field-related work, Jason has participated in a variety of geotechnical analyses and design problems while at Shannon & Wilson, including settlement analyses; determination of lateral earth pressures; wall sliding, bearing capacity, and eccentricity evaluation; stability analyses; and problems involving soil-structure interaction. These geotechnical design and analyses were performed for a variety of infrastructure, including soil nail walls, soldier pile and tieback walls, mechanically stabilized earth walls, pavement structures, existing and proposed utilities, bridge and building deep foundation elements, and pipelines.
