Wesley Donald

Wesley N. Donald, PhD, Research Fellow IV, Dept. of Civil Engineering, Auburn University Wesley N. Donald is currently a Research Fellow in the Department of Civil Engineering at Auburn University. Dr. Donald received a Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in Civil Engineering from Auburn University. The focus of his doctoral research was on the use of ditch check practices in channelized flow for controlling erosion on highway construction sites. Currently Dr. Donald is continuing his research in ditch check practices; is assisting in the testing of sediment barriers in sheet flow applications for evaluating ALDOT sediment barrier practices; evaluating catch basin inserts for urban runoff applications; provides training in erosion and sediment control technologies to industry practitioners; and is instructing undergraduate and graduate students in Introduction to Engineering, Construction Engineering and Management, and Erosion and Sediment Control Technologies in Construction.
