  • Further Experience

Mr. Floyd has a broad range of engineering and surveying experience.  He has surveyed for the US Army in the Gila Desert of Arizona and Fort Polk, Louisiana.  He was also a member of a national  design team for the USGS in which their responsibilty was to ascertain the safety of manned cableways in use at that time.

As an engineer with the USGS, Mr. Floyd gained invaluable experience in the disciplines of hydrology and hydraulics.  He is fully familiar with the one-dimensional step-backwater model theory and has also modeled surface-water flows using a two-dimensional  finite element surface-water model.  These theories, reinforced by practical field experience, are now being applied by Mr. Floyd in design and consulting projects for the private sector.
