Storm Drain Storm Drain Patching Method Poses Environmental Risks
April 28, 2015
More than 1 million storm-water culverts that drain U.S. roadways are in need of repair. State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) have turned to cured-in-place pipe, or CIPP, as a fast and low-cost way to rehabilitate the aging systems. Professor Andrew Whelton and his team were recruited to take a closer look at CIPP's environmental effects.

New technique could bring quality-control tool for nanocomposites
March 27, 2015
Professor Arvind Raman and colleagues have developed a system capable of detecting defects and networks of nanostructures below the surface of layered nanocomposites using a "Kelvin probe" scanning method with an atomic force microscope. The ability to look below the surface of nanocomposites represents a potential new quality-control tool for industry.
