Dr. Bevill is one of CED’s Biomechanical Engineers. Dr. Bevill earned his Master's and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, where he performed research in the Berkeley Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratory and specialized in biomechanics, solid mechanics, and materials science coursework. Prior to attending UC Berkeley, he performed research on total joint replacements at the University of Denver, where he earned two Bachelor of Science degrees – one in Mechanical Engineering and one in Computer Engineering.
Dr. Bevill’s work includes Injury Causation and Analysis of Human environmental interactions, specifically with regard to Railroad incidents and Premises Liability mishaps. He possesses additional expertise with regards to testing of automotive components and ATD’s (Anthropomorphic Test Devices - Crash Test Dummies).
Dr. Bevill is a member of the American Society of Biomechanics, Society of Automotive Engineers, and American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He has published over 15 peer-reviewed articles and abstracts in several of the leading international biomechanics journals and conferences. During his doctoral studies, he served as a peer-reviewer for several biomechanics journals and helped develop funding for the Orthopaedic Biomechanics Lab, including grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Bevill served as a guest lecturer in the Orthopedic Biomechanics Course at UC Berkeley in 2008, and was also a teaching assistant in Orthopedic Biomechanics in the spring of 2005, where he received an Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award. During his time at UC Berkeley, Dr. Bevill also worked as a mechanical testing consultant on such projects as assessing the long-term wear behavior of honeycomb seat cushions for F-16 aircraft.
