From Resilient Infrastructure to Intelligent Computing, NJIT’s New Faculty are Designing the Future

Civil and environmental engineers Matthew Adams and Matthew Bandelt have joined forces to devise new tests to predict how next-generation materials will survive both extreme weather and the grinding wear-and-tear of 21st century life. Booming urban populations, severe weather linked to climate volatility and years of disinvestment are putting acute stress on the country’s infrastructure, prompting planners to rethink the material building blocks of civilization: the asphalt, concrete and steel that compose our roads, bridges and tunnels. Matthew Adams and Matthew Bandelt, new faculty members informally dubbed Matt2 by their colleagues in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, have joined forces to devise new tests to predict how next-generation materials will survive both extreme weather and the grinding wear-and-tear of 21st century life.  Adams focuses on the link between…
