Congratulations to Professor Craig Foster on being selected as a

Fulbright U.S. Scholar

Dr. Foster has been selected for a 2015-2016 Fulbright U.S. scholar grant to India. He will be traveling to India with his proposal.

A brief abstract of his proposal:

Earthen buildings are an old technology experiencing renewed interest,
both in developing and developed countries, for economic and environmental
reasons. This proposal focuses on creating material models that can be
used to examine mechanical behavior, predict safe use, and improve
performance. Central to the research are the interaction of the
constituent particles and the addition of natural fibers for ductility.
The mathematical models will be validated and improved by experiments at
the host institution, building a collaboration between experimentalists
and modelers. A seminar series on modeling for earthen materials will aid
those conducting research at the host institution.
