December 2015 Technical Society Programs

01 Dec

The December 7, 2015 Technical Society of Knoxville will have Jeff Munsey, a geophysicist with the TVA Dam Safety Engineering Services Group as speaker. The title of his presentation will be “TVA dams on karstic foundations” (PDH).

Jeffrey W Munsey is a seismologist at the Tennessee Valley Authority. Seismologists study the genesis and the propagation of seismic waves in geological materials. In the case of earthquakes, seismologists evaluate the potential dangers and seek to minimize their impact through the improvement of construction standards. The bedrock in parts of Tennessee is limestone with caves. Since a dam failure can be a catastrophic event and earthquakes are common in East Tennessee the safety of TVA dams is an important topic.

On December 14, 2015 Harvey Abouelata, President of ARiES Energy, will speak about Solar and biofuel energy projects in the Knoxville area. He has extensive experience in business management, business planning, strategy, sales, marketing, promotions, public relations, implementation, and new technology brand identity with concentration in the renewable energy field.

Since graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1984, Harvey has been helping businesses launch, reorganize, and bring new technology to market.

At ARiES, he oversees business operations and management, marketing strategy, and overall customer satisfaction. In recent history, Harvey was the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at a privately owned Knoxville company where he oversaw the sales, product development, and marketing of residential and commercial products and services for Solar PV and thermal design.
