Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory
3909 Halls Ferry Road
Vicksburg, MS 39180-6199

The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory hosted a group of peers for a tour of the facilities and to discuss research collaborations. Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory visitors included Charlie Burchfield, Dr. Stephanie Wood, Dr. Robert Moser, Dr. Jay Shannon and Dr. Paige Buchanan. All are shown in a cold room at minus 5 degrees Fahrenheit, posed in front of a rack of ice cores that were drilled and retrieved from Greenland and Antarctica during the past 50 years. The visit was hosted by Dr. Emily Asenath-Smith and the CRREL Materials Team. CRREL and GSL are part of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center.

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory completed a field demonstration of foam backfill technology for rapid crater repair November 17 at the annual Silver Flag exercise site on Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. ERDC evaluated ten Airmen from the U.S. Air Force Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force using the new foam dispensing equipment and improved repair procedures. Results from this demonstration and the feedback collected from the participants will help further improvement of the technology.
