Dr. Brian McFall

Dr. Brian McFall joined the U.S. Army Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC) in 2014 and applied his wave mechanics background to advance the research on nearshore placement of dredged sediment. While working for ERDC he created the Sediment Mobility Tool (SMT) which calculates how often sediment in a nearshore berm will be mobilized and where it is likely to go. This tool has been applied at several sites across the United States and has received rave reviews from the practitioners using it. Dr. McFall is currently developing an analytical model for wave attenuation in vegetation.
