Biomechanics Research Program

10:00 am to 11:00 am  -  Dr. Anand Persad, RSI ACRT, Inc

Welcome and Introductions.

About Biomechanics International – Highlighting projects across the globe and how they relate to the dynamics work being done in Hamilton County. Dr. Persad provides a value-added emphasis to Biomechanics in the context of climate change preparedness and resiliency.

11:00 am to 11:30 pm  -  Ward Peterson, Urban & Utility Forestry Consultant

Ward Peterson has been at the forefront of tree biomechanics for over thirty years. Join us as he discusses the history of the field, background in today’s industry, and future implications for the human-environment interface.   

11:30 am to 12:00 pm -  Dr. Adolfo Sanchez Garcia, ITESO

Live via Guadalajara, Mexico; International arborist and researcher Dr. Adolfo Sanchez Garcia will join us to discuss the work performed at the ITESCO (Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente). Learn how this work will influence future arboriculture practice across North America and beyond.

12:00 pm to 12:30 pm  - Lunch

12:30 pm to 1:30 pm - Dr. Greg Dahle, WV

Dr. Dahle will educate participants on the form, function, structure, and sampling methodologies, related to tree biomechanics. This participatory demonstration will give the public an opportunity to experience research science in action.  

1:30 pm to 2:00 pm - David S. Bienemann, City of Hamilton, Ohio

Dave will discuss climate change impacts to tree risk assessment along the transmission corridors.  He will cover adjustments in the integrated vegetation management (IVM) plan using biomechanics data to provide safe and reliable electric service as well as reduce long-term costs of vegetation management.  Dave will talk about using drone technology to monitor the transmission line corridors to save costs and improve productivity of line clearance operations.  

Must RSVP to attend by August 1.
