Viet has over seven years of experience in geotechnical earthquake engineering, including soil liquefaction, seismic-induced displacement, soil-structure interaction, soil reinforcement, slope stability, and geotechnical foundation design. He has extensive experience in numerical modeling for geotechnical earthquake engineering, seismic soil-structure interaction, and liquefaction-induced displacement and settlements.
His work has involved complex seismic structure and soil interaction analyses for marine and port facilities, the seismic performance assessment of existing dams, the seismic upgrade of pump stations, and the seismic retrofitting of seawall structures in Vancouver’s lower mainland. Viet has been involved in supervising subsurface investigations, coordinating lab testing, and designing various geotechnical structures under static and seismic conditions.
A key project team member involved in various Metro Vancouver projects, Viet has contributed his expertise to many projects including the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation’s (VAFFC) Jet Fuel Tank Farm, and Roberts Bank Terminal 2.
