Mizzou Engineers highlight projects during Missouri transportation summit
Mizzou Engineers joined state leaders to discuss ongoing transportation projects, infrastructure needs and related research during the Missouri Chamber of Commerce Transportation Future Summit in Columbia last week.
Civil Engineers assessing effectiveness of J-turn intersections in Missouri
A Mizzou Engineering team has been tasked with assessing the effectiveness of J-turn intersection designs across Missouri’s state highway system.
Engineering team develops autonomous alarm system for work zone vehicles
A Mizzou Engineering team has developed an innovative alert system that tells drivers when they’re in danger of colliding with a mobile work zone vehicle.
Engineers assess self-driving vehicles to reduce mobile work zone injuries
Using a self-driving truck to follow a manned vehicle has the potential to reduce worker injuries in mobile work zones, a Mizzou Engineering team has concluded. Henry Brown, a research engineer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is presenting the findings to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
Mizzou Engineering hosts biannual Missouri Bridge Conference
Mizzou Engineering recently hosted the biannual Missouri Bridge Conference, bringing representatives from academia, government agencies and industry together to discuss current challenges and priority projects.
Engineering team evaluates evacuation in event of earthquake near St. Louis
While minor earthquakes along the New Madrid Fault occur regularly without incident, there’s a small chance another large quake could rattle Missouri and surrounding states. That’s why Mizzou Engineering has teamed up with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) to begin to understand how residents in St. Louis could best evacuate the area. Praveen Edara,…
Orton focuses on STEM outreach efforts to inspire next generation
Sarah Orton, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, is helping promote STEM education across Missouri.
Mizzou Engineers study markings states use to direct drivers through work zones
Mizzou Engineers have wrapped up a comprehensive review of the materials states use to temporarily direct drivers through highway work zones and the various methods they rely on to remove those markings.
Civil Engineer helps MoDOT study New Madrid evacuation routes
A Mizzou Engineer is helping state officials better understand evacuation routes were an earthquake to hit the New Madrid area.
Civil engineers use artificial intelligence to classify pavement cracks
Traffic engineers could have a smarter way of identifying asphalt problems and prioritizing pavement projects, thanks to research from Mizzou Engineering.
