Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Glenn Washer has earned a unique distinction: appearing by name in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. As required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act signed by President Obama in 2012, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) was tasked with updating the National Bridge Inspection Standards […]
Mizzou Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Glenn Washer has long been a proponent of common-sense, risk-based federal bridge inspection standards.
Glenn Washer, a civil engineering professor, has adapted existing handheld and mast-mounted infrared imaging technologies to detect sub-surface corrosion damage in concrete components as well as methodologies to increase the quality of data produced from the imaging.
In early April, the College of Engineering hosted a daylong Missouri Bridge Conference, largely facilitated by Charlie Nemmers, director of the college’s Transportation Infrastructure Center. “I got a call from Dennis Heckman, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s State Bridge Engineer, and he indicated he had been to several other state bridge conferences and thought that […]
Glenn Washer, an associate professor in MU’s Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, recently completed a paper with the goal of creating a more risk-based set of standards for how frequently bridges require inspections.
After an earthquake devastated Peru in 2007, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) selected and funded a University of Missouri team of researchers to evaluate the condition of 40 school and university buildings. Ahmed Ibrahim, a doctoral candidate in civil engineering, was one of three students selected to take part in the […]
An engineering career in which explosives play a key role, even if the work involves minimizing their destructive impact, is the stuff that fuels most boys’ dreams: the noise, the percussion, the fire and smoke. And though Hani Salim’s work in blast retrofit and explosion-resistant design of structures is just such a dream come true, […]
