About

Brian is co-owner, President, and a senior programming engineer at BridgeTech, Inc. He is a licensed professional engineer in Wyoming and has been with the company since 1994.

Brian is the primary programmer on the Wyoming DOT’s BRASS-GIRDER™.  He develops and maintains the structural analysis, dead and live load analysis, and specification checking components for this analysis engine.  Brian contributed significantly to the development of the BRASS™ Route program, which he continues to help maintain.  He leads the development for the BRASS-GIRDER™, BRASS-CULVERT™, BRASS-PIER(LRFD)™, and BRASS™ Route GUIs.

Brian was an important part of the programming team for the AASHTOWare Bridge Design and Rating (BrDR) systems, formerly Virtis®/Opis®, to integrate BRASS™ as the first third-party analysis engine in that software.  He helped develop and now maintains the BRASS™ integration modules (import and export) between BrDR and BRASS-GIRDER™.  Brian contributed to the NCHRP 12-50 research project and implemented this process in the Wyoming DOT’s BRASS-GIRDER™ program.  The NCHRP 12-50 process is now the basis for regression testing this software.

Brian is an instructor for training engineers on the BRASS™ stand-alone software.  Brian has also been an instructor for training engineers on the AASHTOWare Bridge Design and Rating (BrDR) and BRASS™ software.  This training has been taught to 17 state and city DOT’s, to the USDA Forest Service, and at several national conferences.
