    ERDC researchers earn six Black Engineer of the Year Awards

    Six researchers from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) were chosen to receive top honors at the 2021 Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA), an event held virtually Feb. 13.
  • Threatened, Endangered Species team creates win-win situations for military

    The role of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL), Threatened and Endangered Species (TES) program is to identify and understand areas of targeted endangered species management and conservation. Why is this important? The presence of TES on military lands can result in military training restrictions, but effective management and conservation has the potential to substantially deconflict military training and endangered species mandates. In many cases, this presents a win-win scenario where endangered species thrive on installations while military operations maintain flexibility.

    Contingency Basing Integration Training, Evaluation Center tests U.S. Army Prime Power School students

    The Contingency Basing Integration Training and Evaluation Center (CBITEC), in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, provides U.S. Army Prime Power School students with testing facilities throughout their year-long training program. While the students encounter a variety of course challenges, the hands-on training provided and facilitated by the CBITEC is considered the most demanding. CBITEC is a U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) facility that supports the operational energy continuum and safely trains the warfighter to tackle the nation’s power challenges.

    ERDC multi-disciplinary, multi-laboratory team earns cost-saving coated dowel bar patent

    Combining multi-disciplinary talents from two laboratories at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), a three-person team earned a U.S. patent in July 2020 for the inventive Electro-active Vitreous Enamel Coated Dowel Bar, which stabilizes concrete segments and reduces repair costs.
  • ERDC wins big at USACE National Awards Ceremony

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) brought home eight awards from the annual U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) National Awards Ceremony, held virtually Nov. 12, 2020. Employees of the ERDC Construction Research and Engineering Laboratory (CERL) claimed two of the top honors at the ceremony. Dr. Rebekah Wilson was named USACE Researcher of the Year and Joseph Bush won USACE Mechanical Engineer of the Year.
  • CERL hosts senior Army installation, energy, environment leadership

    Leadership from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) discussed ongoing projects and innovative technologies with the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (PDASA) for Installations, Energy and Environment (IE&E) Bryan Gossage, during his visit to the CERL campus Oct. 30.
  • RD20 fosters collaboration

    With scientists, engineers and other professionals spread across seven laboratories and multiple fields sites across the country, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) network is vast. But last week, ERDC hosted a virtual symposium – RD20 – with the goal of further connecting researchers scattered in various laboratories and locations throughout the country to enhance the organization’s ability to solve the nation’s toughest engineering challenges.

    MacAllister builds relationships while battling pathogens in the Czech Republic

    When Irene MacAllister learned the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (DASA) for Defense Exports and Cooperation (DE&C) was searching for potential candidates with expertise in immunology, microbiology, proteomics, gene editing and bioinformatics who were interested in a 12-month assignment to the Czech Republic, she jumped at the chance.
  • ERDC researchers are a driving force in construction scale 3D printing

    Since 2015, scientists and engineers at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineer Research Laboratory (CERL) have been exploring expeditionary additive construction technology, also known as construction scale 3D printing.
  • Using virtual solutions for robotic testing during the COVID-19 pandemic

    Researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) are accustomed to finding unique and innovative approaches to solving today’s most challenging engineering problems. The current COVID-19 environment presented new obstacles for the Sensor Integration Branch (SIB) in the ERDC’s Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) and Environmental Processes Branch (CNE) in the ERDC’s Construction Engineering Research Laboratory, prompting the robotics group to capitalize on simulation software capabilities to meet mission requirements.
