A new, state-of-the-art high sheer dual-mixer concrete batching plant is the latest addition to the research facilities available to S&T faculty and students. The plant is currently being assembled and installed in the HyPoint Building at 4000 Enterprise Drive and is scheduled for completion in approximately three weeks. Photos of the installation will be posted on the Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies’ (CIES) Flickr account.
This project was spearheaded by Dr. Kamal H. Khayat, the director of CIES and the Vernon and Maralee Jones professor of civil engineering. The acquisition was made possible by a research grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Khayat envisions this batching plant as being permanently housed in the Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall Advanced Construction Materials Laboratory, a building expansion project that has been identified in the civil, architectural and environmental engineering department VISION 2020 strategic plan.
