  1. CEE 1020 Connections to Civil & Environmental Engineering: Introduction to Transportation Materials & Geotechnical L. K. Crouch, Professor of Civil Engineering Benjamin Mohr, Asst. Professor of Civil Engineering

  2. L. K. Crouch Professor of Civil Engineering Joined TTU Civil Engineering in 1990 4 years with Kentucky Department of Transportation Construction Division B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Missouri-Rolla Married 23 years 2 children – Rachel and Hannah Professional Engineer in Tennessee Member of: American Society for Testing and Materials American Concrete Institute

  3. L. K. Crouch Professor of Civil Engineering Principal research interests are: Aggregates Portland cement concrete Controlled Low-strength Material Accomplishments Author of 60 publications Advisor of 23 successful graduate students 1.3+ million dollars of external research funding at TTU 1998 Brown-Henderson Outstanding Engineering Faculty Award

  4. June 2003 Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

  5. Ben Mohr, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering Joined TTU Civil Engineering in 2005 B.S.C.E from the University of Delaware M.S.C.E. and Ph.D. from Georgia Tech Faculty co-advisor, TTU Chapter of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Member of: American Concrete Institute Behavior of Concrete at Early Ages and Materials Science of Concrete Committees American Ceramic Society, Cements Division International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM)

  6. Ben Mohr, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering Principal research interests are: Durability and chemistry of portland cement-based materials Microscopy and imaging of microstructures Early age behavior of concrete Fiber-reinforced concrete Supplementary cementitious materials Accomplishments Hold a provisional patent on materials for internal curing of high performance concrete Authored 11 publications 2002-2005 Georgia Institute of Technology President’s Fellow

  7. Ben Mohr, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering

  8. Portland Cement Concrete Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Topics

  9. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Topics Aggregates

  10. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Topics Controlled Low-strength Materials

  11. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Topics Durability and Microstructure of Cement-Based Materials

  12. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Topics Hot-mix Asphalt

  13. Soil Mechanics

  14. Pavement Design Foundation Design

  15. Clay Masonry Units Concrete Masonry Units

  16. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Courses

  17. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical Courses

  18. Transportation Materials Student Competitions American Society of Civil Engineers Southeastern Regional Student Concrete Strength Competition First Place: 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000 Second Place: 1997, 2006 Third Place: 1998, 1999 American Concrete Institute International High-strength Lightweight Student Concrete Cube Competition First Place: 1995, 1997 Second Place: 1996 Third Place: 1995, 1998 Fifth Place: 1999

  19. Transportation Materials Student Competitions

  20. Transportation Materials Student Competitions

  21. Transportation Materials Student Competitions

  22. Transportation Materials Student Competitions

  23. Are Aggregates & HMA Important?

  24. What about PCC? U.S. Concrete Production in 2004 was 430,500,000 cubic yards Tennessee 2004 Concrete Production was 6,888,000 cubic yards

  25. L. K. Crouch, Current Research

  26. Ben Mohr, Current Research

  27. We are Making Materials Greener (Actually More Environmentally Friendly but we can also color materials green) While Enhancing Material Performance

  28. We Helped Rewrite the Book on CLSM Now FHWA wants us to keep on Going and Going

  29. Get Your Hands Dirty -It’s Fun

  30. Be Part of a Winning Team!(Students Working on Federal Funded CLSM Research)

  31. Transportation Materials & Geotechnical • It’s Fun • It’s Changing the World • Is it the most important part of Civil & Environmental Engineering? • Obviously (and that’s an unbiased opinion) • Just try constructing something without materials! • Enjoy the lab tours & contact us if we can be of assistance: • L. K. Crouch, 372-3196 or lcrouch@tntech.edu • Ben Mohr, 372-3546 or bmohr@tntech.edu
