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, […]
