  • Christopher Bareither received the ASCE 2020 Associate Editor Award for the 2020 Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering. The award recognizes an associate editor who has provided consistent and exemplary service to a particular journal or practice periodical, or a substantial unique...
  • Researchers at Colorado State University developed computer models to evaluate the complex interactions between debris flows and the stress-strain response of steel structures of flexible steel, ring-net barriers, a common form of barrier used to mitigate debris flows and protect transportation infrastructure....
  • Researchers at Colorado State University are testing an innovative building material for its suitability in building lightweight sustainable bridges. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a sustainable, lightweight, high-strength versatile building material that has been used in Europe but has not been tested...
  • Several papers from MPC-funded research projects were recently published. They include the following: "Bicycle safety at roundabouts: a systemic literature review" was written by Niranjan Pudel and Patrick Singleton with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Utah State University....
  • Several papers from MPC-funded research projects were recently published. They include the following: "Seismic repair of deficient and code compliant bridge wall piers" was published in the April 2021 edition of Engineering Structures. Authors are Bhaskar Kunwar, Vanessa McEntee, and Chris P. Pantelides...
  • Researchers at Colorado State University developed a method that engineers can use to optimize a road segment and all bridges on the roadway for height above a river or creek to reduce the potential damage to the transportation network to a consistent level of risk and assure transportation access for...
  • Kathryn Knight, master's student in civil and environmental engineering at Colorado State University, defended her MS thesis, "Assessing the Use of Dual-Drainage Modeling to Determine the Effects of Green Stormwater Infrastructure Networks on Events of Roadway Flooding." The work was part of MPC project...
  • Work by MPC researchers at Colorado State University was recently published in several journals. "Streamlined bridge inspection system utilizing unmanned aerial vehicles and machine learning," by Brandon J. Perry, Yanlin Guo, Rebecca Atadero and John W. van de Lindt was published in the journal, Measurement....
  • MPC researchers at Colorado State University are improving the hydrologic analyses used to evaluate dam safety and to design bridges and roads. Many current hydrologic guidelines assume that runoff from design storms is produced by an infiltration-excess mechanism where rainfall intensity exceeds the...
  • MPC researcher Mahmet Ozbek recently received the Associated Schools of Construction Outstanding Educator Award. Ozbek is the interim department head for the Colorado State University Construction Management Program and was recently promoted to professor at CSU. The award recognizes Ozbek's contribution...
  • MPC researchers at Colorado State University developed an improved method for estimating stream flows from storms so that engineers can install bridges, culverts and other transportation infrastructure that assures the reliability and public safety of the transportation network. The improved method...
  • Colorado State University Ph.D. student Abdelrahman Abdallah won second place in the Great Minds in Research award for his research topic at the Graduate Student Showcase in November. Abdallah is earning his Ph.D. in Construction Engineering and Management, a collaborative program between the Colorado...
  • In traditional seismic analyses of bridges, traffic is typically ignored, but the reality is that bridges experiencing earthquakes will likely have normal traffic on them. MPC researchers at Colorado State University developed an analytic method of modeling the response of complex bridges to seismic...
  • Existing bridge seismic analyses examine the inertial forces applied on bridge structures during earthquakes, but do not fully consider the interaction between earthquake motions, bridges and the traffic on those bridges. Long-span bridges often carry a significant amount of traffic and many vehicles...
  • Considerable research has focused on the seismic performance of bridges, but embankments are also subject to damage during earthquakes. That damage may prevent the proper functioning of transportation networks that will be essential for rescue workers, repair teams and disaster relief efforts. MPC researchers...
  • The fatigue life of rebar in reinforced concrete beams could be doubled or tripled through the use of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP), MPC researchers at Colorado State University found. The researchers studied the effect of externally bonded CFRP on slowing or arresting fatigue crack growth...
  • Dr. Yufen Zhou, a former MPC Ph.D. student at Colorado State University, was recently named a Rising Star by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Zhou is a wind engineer at SOH Wind Engineering LLC focusing on wind-induced vibration of critical...
  • Dr. Gaofeng Jia has joined the MPC faculty as an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at Colorado State University. He has expertise in natural hazard risk assessment and mitigation, robust analysis and design of complex engineering systems and high performance structures, risk-informed...
  • MPC Research Published (Jul 13, 2016)
    Three journal papers featuring MPC research at Colorado State University conducted by MPC principal investigator Suren Chen and his collaborators were recently published: Chen, F., Chen, S. and Ma, X. "Crash frequency modeling using real-time environmental and traffic data and unbalanced panel data...
  • A paper titled "Creating Inclusive Environments in First-Year Engineering Classes to Support Student Retention and Learning" by Christina Paguyo, a postdoctoral fellow in the College of Engineering at Colorado State University, and CSU MPC Program Director Rebecca Atadero won two best paper awards at...
