Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering

CIE 572 - Advanced Concrete Materials

Faculty: Ranade

This course provides state-of-the-art knowledge of advanced concrete materials, including high and ultra-high performance concretes, fiber-reinforced concretes, and strain-hardening cementitious composites. Students learn about the ingredients and the design philosophy behind these materials. Fracture mechanics, scale-linking, and fiber/matrix bond-related concepts that are central for understanding the behaviors of these materials are discussed in detail. Students gain hands-on experience of mixing, processing, and testing high performance concretes. Durability properties of materials are given equally significant attention as the mechanical properties. Basics of Life cycle analysis of structures is presented in the last part of this course as it helps the students to appreciate the importance of the durability of materials, along with the mechanical properties, in determining the long term performance of a structure and its repair and maintenance needs. By completing this course, the instructor’s expectation is that the students will be inspired to seek innovative applications of these materials in both industry and research. >>> More

CIE 580 - Emerging Technologies In Bridge Engineering

Faculty: Kaminski

This course surveys emerging technologies, including both software and hardware systems, which are intended to enhance the analysis, design, construction, performance, and asset management of bridges and highway infrastructure. Emphasis is placed on those technologies whose basic knowledge has been established but not yet fully deployed into bridge and infrastructure engineering practice. Examples may include nonlinear analysis methods and design software, energy dissipation and seismic isolation systems, accelerated construction methods, health monitoring, seismic and other retrofit methods and guidelines, integrated project delivery methods, and lifecycle asset management. Presentations by subject area experts complement those given by the instructor. LEC.

CIE 584 - Design of Steel Highway Bridges

Faculty: Anthony

This course introduces the fundamentals of steel bridge theory, analysis, and design, including single and continuous span bridge structures. Other topics covered in the course include connection design and construction, fatigue analysis, deck design and bearing design. Industry-appropriate software is used for project work.

Industrial and Systems Engineering

IE 504 - Facilities Design

Faculty: Batta

Facilities Design teaches the analytical tools necessary to effectively tackle the problem of designing the layout of a productive facility. Both non-quantitative and quantitative, computer-based approaches are detailed. The course also discusses location problems, i.e., analytical methods to determine optimal locations of machines/workcenters in a manufacturing facility. Also, the course discusses warehouse storage policies, i.e., analytical methods for effective management of warehouse storage space. Finally, there is discussion of automated guided vehicles and their utility in a modern flexible manufacturing system.

MAE 674 - Optical Estimation Method

Faculty: Crassidis

Introduction to linear and nonlinear estimation methods with emphasis on both theory and implementation. Batch and sequential strategies, real-time and post-experiment estimation are covered. Includes both parameter estimation and state estimation. LEC . Prerequisite: Some exposure to linear systems, probability, and optimization is helpful, or permission of instructor. >>> More
