Jacquelyn Allmond is a Senior Engineer based in Maryland with more than 12 years of experience focused on geotechnical and earthquake engineering for a variety of dam, waste containment, and other critical infrastructure facilities.
Jacquelyn assists clients in the geotechnical and earthquake engineering practice areas related to dams, levees, landfills, and other critical and lifeline infrastructure facilities. Her project portfolio as a skilled technical leader and project manager includes evaluation of facilities and structures subjected to liquefaction, lateral spread, and other seismic hazards including assessment and mitigation of subsurface liquefiable soils. Her technical experience includes site response analysis, finite element/difference modeling, slope stability and seepage analyses, and probabilistic seismic hazard risk assessment. She has served as lead engineer in the design and construction of waste containment systems, in addition to preparing engineering reports, construction drawings, and specifications with experience performing construction site-specific quality assurance testing and reporting. Jacquelyn has also supported clients in developing, installing, and maintaining instrumentation networks and documentation for both seismic and geotechnical applications.
Recently, Jacquelyn served as the technical lead for several planning-level studies on seismically-induced liquefaction evaluation of existing buried lifeline infrastructure systems throughout California. These studies have helped clients identify critical locations of liquefaction potential and damage within their operational footprint in order to assess overall system vulnerability to geohazards and support decision making for future mitigation and planning projects.
To advance the state of the practice, Jacquelyn is active with professional groups such as the US Society on Dams (USSD) where she serves as the Young Professional Vice Chair on the Embankment Dams committee, the Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO), the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
