Civil and Environmental Engineering Publications

 

The research in Civil and Environmental Engineering examines advances in understanding of structures both natural and manmade along with the areas in which the two collide. The four main areas of research are environmental and water resources, geotechnical and geoenvironmental, structural and infrastructural, and wind engineering and environmental fluid mechanics.
