James Tinjum’s overall consulting background and research/teaching interests are inter-disciplinary, covering facets of geotechnical, environmental, transportation, geological, and energy engineering. From a broad perspective, he conducts research in energy geotechnics, the beneficial reuse of industrial byproducts, remediation of metals-contaminated sites, and rail substructure material testing and modeling. He developed these research interests as a consulting engineer for 10+ years at two internationally prominent engineering firms and through discussions and interactions with practitioners participating in his national continuing engineering short course programs.
