Civil engineering doctoral candidate receives International Engagement Award

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 […]

Faculty profile: Hani Salim

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, […]

Timber bridge team wins “most practical design”

Wooden bridges have largely gone the way of horse drawn carriages, both replaced with innovations arising from the industrial revolution, though arguably a better case can be made for a car in every garage than for a span of cold steel over every stream. Just ask the folks at Southwest Mississippi Resource Conservation and Development, […]

College of Engineering researchers aim to deter bridge terrorism

Government officials have long acknowledged America’s vulnerability to terrorist attacks on the national transportation system. Backed by federal funding, Mizzou Engineering researchers are coming up with ways to protect against such attacks. Sam Kiger, an MU civil and environmental engineering professor who has focused throughout his career on designing structures to withstand explosions, is leading […]
