Faculty in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering focus on four main research areas:
Primary Contact: Raj Siddharthan
Major Focus: Complex stress path testing with feedback of soils under drained and undrained conditions; cyclic triaxial testing; flex wall permeability measurements.
Primary Contact: Ian Buckle
Major Focus: Response of structures to earthquakes and other dynamic loads, component and system studies (bridge and building systems, non-structural components and assemblies), innovative and conventional materials, shake table and hybrid simulation of earthquake loads, shared-use access using NEES telepresence facilities.
Primary Contact: Eric Marchand
Major Focus: Water quality analyses, bench-and-pilot-scale testing, large scale hydraulic flume studies, surface and colloid characterization.
Primary Contacts: Peter Sebaaly, Elie Hajj
Major Focus: The WRSC is one of five centers established by the Federal Highway Administration to promote the implementation of superpave technology for asphalt pavements. Research focuses on pavement materials, design, performance and rehabilitation. This lab is fully accredited and certified by the AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory.
