Dr. Biedenharn is a professional engineer with over forty years of experience in hydraulics, river engineering, sediment transport, and fluvial geomorphology with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District, Lower Mississippi Valley Division office, the U.S. Army Engineer Research Development Center (ERDC) at the Waterways Experiment Station (WES), and the Biedenharn Group. While at Corps’ Mississippi Valley Division office, he conducted river engineering and geomorphic studies on the Mississippi River and its tributaries, and served as Channel Improvement Coordinator for the Mississippi River Channel Improvement Project, a comprehensive water resources project including the planning and construction of training dikes and revetments. He is presently a research hydraulic engineer with the River Engineering Branch at ERDC. His work experience includes the hydraulic design of flood control and navigation channels, levees, geomorphic assessments, bank stabilization measures, and grade control structures, channel restoration projects, and regional sediment management. He has been a leader in advancing a systems approach to channel studies, that ensures that planned restoration features function both at the local and watershed scales, and allows for the proper inclusion of natural and nature based features to meet project goals. He has also been responsible for conducting geomorphic and river engineering research, and developing and teaching training courses and workshops for the Corps of Engineers, and other federal, state, and local agencies throughout the U.S., and in many foreign countries. He has authored over 100 technical papers and reports on hydraulic engineering, fluvial geomorphology, channel restoration, and sedimentation.
