Dr. Ahlberg received a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. His primary area of research is in soil-structure interaction of foundation elements. He is involved in drilled shaft and abutment wall research, including lateral performance of drilled shafts and passive pressure development for wall-type foundations. Dr. Ahlberg has investigated structures damaged by earthquake, storm surge, wind, fire, snow, blast pressure, vehicle impact, construction problems, design defects, ground settlement, and soil pressure. He also has experience in earthquake engineering, reinforced concrete, steel, wood and masonry design, as well as geotechnical designs for retaining walls, tiebacks, and deep foundations. Dr. Ahlberg also serves as a Lecturer for graduate courses on the design of steel structures for the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Ahlberg is an expert in noise and vibration monitoring, and has expertise in sensor installation, monitoring, data acquisition, and analysis. He also has experience in sensor data management, remote monitoring of sensor and camera data, and long-range wireless transmission of data and imaging.
