Naesgaard-Amini Geotechnical Ltd. (NAGL) is a small geotechnical consulting company (three Engineers) that evolved from Naesgaard Geotechnical Ltd., which established in 2006. This company is capable of performing complex advanced state of art/practice geotechnical analyses and innovative foundation design for a variety of projects ranging from industrial and commercial foundation projects to complex infrastructures and water retaining structures. The current focus of this team is on complex projects that require advanced numerical modeling (using the program FLAC), soil dynamics and earthquake engineering and soil-structure interaction, advanced soil characterization and modeling. These qualifications are necessary for performance based designs which are becoming more common among medium to large projects. Other qualifications and interests of this team include analysis and design of deep foundations, pile load testing, ground improvement, seismic response assessment and advanced site characterization. In addition to geotechnical design work, this team has tried to stay up-to-date with the latest state of the practice of geotechnical analyses, especially in the field of soil-structure interaction, earthquake engineering, dynamic analysis and advanced soil modeling.
