Providing Civil and Geotechnical Engineering, Design Consultation
and Project Management throughout the Midwest United States.

At Civil Solutions Associates (CSA) projects include: stream bank reconstruction, landslide remediation, roller compacted dams, segmental retaining walls, deep foundations, soil nail walls, reinforced slopes, shoring systems, numerical modeling services for complicated projects like tunnels, levees, dams,  foundations, special retention systems and dynamic analysis.

We perform numerical analyses with FLAC3D, Plaxis, Plaxis 3D Tunnel or Plaxis 3D Foundation. The solution for a given problem could range from a simple analysis based on our collective experience and judgment, to one using state-of-the-art numerical modeling technology.

CSA is responsive to client needs.  Our staff is available on a daily basis for communication and consultation regarding your project.  Each project is required to be reviewed by another professional in our office.   Beyond the quality assurance measure provided by this procedure, this also allows an additional person to address project specific questions and concerns that may arise.

CSA has established relationships with several independent laboratories surrounding Southwest, Ohio.  These laboratories are nationally accredited by Certification from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) for Soil and Portland Cement Concrete.  Additionally, the laboratories are inspected by the Cement and Concrete Reference Laboratory (CCRL) and the AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory (AMRL) during each tour inspection.

Computer Resources:

CSA uses up-to-date word processing, spreadsheet, and Autocad/Microstation software, in a Microsoft Windows based format.  CSA has developed a wide variety of software and spreadsheet based programs for engineering analyses and we have been able to provide innovative and efficient designs with their application.  Selected engineering software capabilities offered by CSA include the following:

Slope Stability (STABL)
Lateral Analyses (LPILE,)
MSE Wall Evaluation (Visual Slope)
Computer-aided Drafting (Autocad 2007/Microstation v8)
Deep Foundation Design (DeepFDN)
Earth Retention/Excavation Systems (Deepex)
