Civil Engineering

Congratulations to this year's winners for the Vanderhoof BS/MS Scholarship: Alexander Abbott, Holly Adam, Kimberly Baker, Alison Brooks, and Stacey Hursen. The scholarship was established through a generous donation by the Vanderhoof Family to support civil engineering students who are pursuing BS/MS degrees in our department.

More than 200 area high school students participated in the 2015 Annual High School Model Balsa Wood Bridge Competition during E-week. The model bridges were judged by their design and stiffness under specific loading conditions.

Funded by the National Park Service, two 13,000-pound trusses, resurrected from the charred ruins of a wooden bridge, are heading home to New Hampshire after spending more than two years in our department.

Dario Gasparini, a civil engineering professor nationally known for his work on historic bridges, has been studying the strengths and weaknesses of what's known as a Howe truss bridge. For more information...

The department welcomes the new faculty member Dr. YeongAe (Aleena) Heo as an assistant professor in structural engineering. Dr. Heo obtained her Ph.D. degree from University of California, Davis. Before joining Case, she worked for a few years at Samsung Heavy Industries and Seoul National University. Her expertise is multi-hazard and multi-scale structure dynamics and risk analysis and modeling.

 

 

 

 

A breakfast reception was held at the Ohio Transportation Engineering Conference (OTEC) in Columbus Ohio with about 20 alumni attending. Prof. Zeng, chair of the department, gave an update about the department and answered questions. The event was organized by the Case Alumni Association and will be held annually at the conference in the future.
