Lyles School of Civil Engineering - Purdue University


Paul Imbrock
Paul Imbrock (BSCE '11), the founder of a startup based on a Purdue University innovation says the company could help managers of state transportation departments and other large-scale consumers of concrete extend the lifetime of their concrete investments.
Purdue University professional flight students are receiving a $795 reduction in semester fees as a direct result of an updated aircraft usage plan. The new fee structure is expected to save students $250,000 over the next two academic years. John Mott, associate head for aviation technology, assembled a team of Purdue researchers to collect real-time data on the university's fleet of Cirrus SR-20 aircraft. The team included Darcy Bullock, director of Purdue's Joint Transportation Research Program, and civil engineering graduate student Maggie McNamara.
Dunston and Louis
Project managers at construction, mining and agricultural sites could benefit from technology developed by Purdue University civil engineers that could provide a real-time overview and help control cost and time overruns. Professor Phillip Dunston and doctoral candidate Joseph Louis have created technology that provides real-time, actionable insights to a project site manager.
Lawrence G. Griffis, P.E. will give his talk on the design and construction of Cowboys Stadium on Thursday, Nov. 5th, 2015 at 4:30pm in LILY G126. There will be a reception in Wood Commons starting at 3:00pm.
Prof. Cary Troy
Students and researchers interested in the mechanics of water flow don't need to leave Indiana to test their theories; they only need to walk to the north side of campus.
ITSC Award Ceremony
A paper by Prof. Srinivas Peeta, Ph.D. student Yong Hoon Kim, and NEXTRANS research associate Xiaozheng He was recognized as being among the top three papers of the IEEE 18th International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems in Las Palmas De Gran Canaria, Spain.
Wabash River
A new study reveals a pressing need to better understand water use in America's rivers, with implications for drought-stricken regions of the country. Findings from the study showed that virtually all of the water entering the Wabash River in Indiana during summer months is withdrawn and then returned to the waterway.
Engineering Maymester in Sweden
In May 2015, 17 Purdue CE students visited Stockholm, Sweden, to study environmental sustainability across multiple sectors. The week-long session was led by Inez Hua, professor of civil engineering and professor of environmental and ecological engineering, and Jill Churchill, undergraduate international programs coordinator in the Office of Global Engineering Programs.
Purdue students from seven different academic units, including Civil Engineering, traveled May 9-15, 2015, to the Dominican Republic for a service-learning project related to a course titled Water Supply in Developing Countries.
Satish Ukkusuri
Purdue University, led by Prof. Satish Ukkusuri along with researchers from Virginia Tech and North Dakota State University, have been selected to receive a $2.5 million National Science Foundation Hazards SEES grant to understand the role of uncertainty in hurricane evacuation decision-making.
Panagiota Karava
Associate Professor Panagiota Karava is leading a multi-disciplinary Purdue team that has been awarded a $1.2M National Science Foundation grant for their project "CyberSEES -Type 2: Human-centered systems for cyber-enabled sustainable buildings."
The Lyles School of Civil Engineering has been ranked the #5 undergraduate civil engineering program in the country according to the 2016 US News & World Report ranking.
