In April, a volunteer group led by University of Missouri College of Engineering professor Kevin Gillis, DSc, met with MU Health Care leaders. The goal was to figure out the best ways to harness the talent of a cross-campus team of problem-solvers to make medical equipment to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. They decided the […]
Inside the Mizzou Asphalt Pavement and Innovation Lab at the University of Missouri College of Engineering, Bill Buttlar normally leads a research team developing innovative ways to build better roads and stronger bridges. However, he’s recently converted his lab to also produce an ethanol-based hand sanitizer for use during the COVID-19 pandemic to help […]
What if smartphones could tell your department of transportation the quality of the roads you drive on? Two Mizzou Engineers are working to answer that question.
Amir Alavi was named to the 2018 list of “The World’s 1% Most Influential Scientific Minds” by Thomson Reuters recently and published a book with colleague Bill Buttlar.
Posters covering a wide array research topics and more filled a large room near the College’s library in the late afternoon, followed by four brief TED-style talks on subjects related to each of Mizzou Engineering’s four Pillars of Pursuit.
Bill Buttlar, the Barton Chair of Flexible Pavement Technology in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, recently received a China Great Overseas Talent Award
The ASNT honored Bill Buttlar, the Barton Chair of Flexible Pavement Technology in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, and three colleagues from his former home at the University of Illinois with the Outstanding Paper in Materials Evaluation award.
The Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association-supported instructional facility and lab includes the latest resources, including asphalt binders, mixture testing equipment and much more.
The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department recently selected Buttlar for the newly endowed position of Barton Chair in Flexible Pavement Technology, named for 1961 civil engineering alumnus Glen Barton, who helped fund the position along with the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association.
