Dwight D. Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program (DDETFP) Recipients

Congratulations to Alejandra Quesada (Civil Engineering major) and Leondo Benally (Construction Management major) for receiving the Eisenhower Fellowship. Alejandra has been working with Dr. Robin Tuchscherer on a project related to the service-life of concrete bridges while Leondo is doing a rerouting highway 89 near Page that was previously collapsed on February 2013. Both students have been received a $10,000 award and will be presenting their research at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board in Washington, D.C.

NAU senior students, Junyi Shan and Darius Ishaku, participated in the 2013 ACI Pervious Concrete Cylinder Competition and won second place in the Load-to-Cost Category. Among 25 universities (34 teams) from the US and South America, their achievement is quite significant. These two Civil Engineering students worked closely with Dr. Jun Ho and performed research on pervious concrete paving that can withstand the cold climate of Flagstaff, AZ. They have been received a certificate of recognition and a $500 award. Their pervious concrete mix design will be adopted by NAU to install pervious concrete pavements for parking lots on campus.
