I just returned from a quick visit to Washington, D.C. for the annual Transportation Research Board meeting. I provided a presentation on wave-induced local pier scour and submitted a paper for publication in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board. A decision on final publication is pending and should be made soon. The paper abstract can be downloaded  {here}. A citation is listed below. The full paper is available in the compendium of papers distributed at the TRB meeting. Click on the TRB logo for a direct link to the meeting web site. Contact me directly if you are interested in seeing a copy of the presentation.

A number of CE graduate students and faculty are presenting their research at the annual USA Spring Research Forum the week of March 26 – 30, 2012. Research posters are displayed in the lower and upper lobby of the Mitchell College of Business (MCOB). A formal research symposium will be held on Friday, 3/30. The CE posters are on the lower lobby level on boards 17 – 20. Students are encouraged to view the posters to gain an appreciation for the research that USA students, both undergraduate and graduate, and faculty are performing. Some reduced-scale versions of the posters can be found below the corresponding citations that follow. Please contact me if you’d like more information about these or other projects.
