Advanced Civil Engineering Materials Research Laboratory (ACE-MRL)
Integrates material nano and microstructure to address contemporary challenges in civil
infrastructure. The ACE-MRL fosters the creation of a next generation built environment
harmonious with the natural environment via advanced materials technologies. Both graduate
and undergraduate students at the ACE-MRL are involved in basic research topics driven by
societal needs, and sponsored by a combination of governmental (NSF, NIST, DoE) and industrial
entities in energy, water, building and transportation infrastructure sectors.
