This research program aims to contribute to the development of innovative pavements, enhance detection of corrosion in reinforced concrete bridges, undertake research in seismic strengthening for BC schools, and
This project will develop new models for monitoring the structural health of tall and mid-rise buildings.
This project will develop a new system that uses Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for structural health monitoring of inaccessible railway bridges in Canada and India.
This project will develop new mixes that use boot ash to produce cement-less concrete or fine aggregate for concrete for precast applications of the construction industry resulting in significant
This project will use structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques to evaluate the current condition and anticipated remaining lifespan of railway bridges and tracks in Canada and India.
This research project seeks to bring together biomass based biochars and hydrochars from rice husk waste product to remove heavy metals and other contaminants from industrial and domestic wastewater
This research project seeks to develop a new CDI (Capacitive Deionization Technology) water purification system for point-of-use applications and replace the widely used, but very inefficient Reverse Osmosis units.
This research program will seek to develop an economically viable, technologically feasible process to improve and enhance resources and energy recovery from municipal wastewater and biosolids.
This project strives to identify some of the key water borne pathogens in Indian and Canadian water bodies, and to deploy a novel nanoparticle-based water treatment
