Missouri S&T is leading a consortium of four universities that will share $1.4 million per year through a two-year grant authorized by Congress under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

The funds will establish a new University Transportation Center, named RE-CAST (Research on Concrete Applications for Sustainable Transportation), that will study the use of new materials and structural systems to improve roads and bridges.

Kamal Khayat, the Vernon and Maralee Jones Chair of Civil Engineering and director of S&T’s Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies, is the principal investigator. Working with Khayat are John J. Myers, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering; Dimitri Feys, assistant professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering; and Jeffrey Volz, associate professor of structural engineering at Oklahoma University.
