  • Two ERDC labs team up for one cool project

    Two ERDC laboratories, the Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory (GSL) and Cold Regions Research Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), collaborated to conduct several full-scale placements of JetCon JC400 rapid-setting concrete as a part of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering’s Foreign Comparative Testing program.
  • Infrastructure Innovation: New Poe Lock arrestor arm is the largest U.S. civil works component produced by 3D printer

    As America’s civil works infrastructure ages, managers need innovative solutions to replace parts that have been in service for nearly a century. Often, these original components were fabricated using vintage material and manufacturing methods, making them costly, burdensome and time-consuming to replace. Responding to this need, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is employing cutting-edge 3D-printing techniques to manufacture these parts faster and at a lower cost while maintaining, and even improving, their properties.

    Attacking challenges at high speed

    Computer scientists at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) merge high-performance computing (HPC) and data analytics, giving them the capability to process large amounts of data with unprecedented speed.
  • ERDC leads advances in sustainable materials for military construction

    Climate change is a major priority for the Biden administration, which has set a goal to reach net zero emissions by no later than 2050. As the Army works to meet these goals and accomplish the objectives set in its own Climate Strategy, it has begun to focus more attention on one of its biggest emissions drivers: construction activities related to its vast inventory of buildings.
  • ERDC researcher experiences ‘awesome’ maiden trip to Antarctica

    Hannah Wittmann, a research physical scientist at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, New Hampshire, recently returned from her first trip to Antarctica, where she helped perform critical crevasse detection and mitigation work along the roughly 1,000-mile long South Pole Traverse (SPoT) route.
