Researchers in the CCEE department are utilizing Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in bridges and to develop non-proprietary mixes of UHPC. Contributors to the project include Terry Wipf, Behrouz Shafei, Katelyn Freeseman, and others. Click on the link above to see the video feature of this work.
Iowa State University (ISU) co-hosted the second annual International Interactive Symposium on Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in Albany, New York, from June 2-5.
Halil Ceylan’s heated pavement technology was featured on The Today Show. Watch the video to see just how quickly the heated runways can melt away snow and ice.
From NPR’s All Tech Considered: “Last year, Halil Ceylan, a professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering at Iowa State University, installed two 15-by-13.5-foot slabs of conductive concrete at a corner of a hangar at Des Moines International Airport. It’s in an area for smaller planes, and Ceylan can turn on the heated pavement with an …Continue reading “Winter is coming. What if roads and runways could de-ice themselves?”
This week, students and faculty of Iowa State University’s Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Department presented their research to the top minds of their field. And they never had to leave campus. ISU’s CCEE Department hosted the Partnership to Enhance General Aviation Safety, Accessibility and Sustainability’s (PEGASAS) Fourth Annual Meeting. More than 100 participants attended the event, …Continue reading “CCEE Graduate Research Takes Off at PEGASAS Annual Meeting at ISU”
What happens when buildings are put to the test? Professor Matt Rouse created the CCEE Reinforced Concrete Beam Contest to show his students exactly that. “As engineers, a lot of times we design things but we don’t get to see how they fail. Hopefully not, anyway,” he said with a smile. This spring, Rouse’s engineering …Continue reading “CCEE Competition Tests Beam, Skills”
