                                                 message From the chair
                                                 Hello again from the CEE Department. This newsletter is the second one
                                                 since I became Chair, and we have a bit more than a year of news to report.
                                                 As most of you probably know, we lost Dr. Richard Honrath last Spring in
                                                 a kayaking accident on the Silver River. His memorial is described in the
                                                 newsletter. Mr. Ed Haltenhoff was recently posthumously inducted into the
                                                 Construction Hall of Fame.
                                                 Our Concrete Canoe team, which many of you helped sponsor, was first,
                                                 by a significant margin, in the regional competition and came in fourth in
                                                 the national competition at San Luis Obispo, CA. Congratulations to all
                                                 involved, and thanks to all of you who helped fund the team.
                                                 Each year we give out a number of student awards and scholarships, some of
                                                 which we describe here. We also profile faculty who have received awards.
                                                 Last summer we inducted six new members into the Academy of Civil and
  department chair dr. william Bulleit           Environmental Engineers, bringing the total membership in the Academy
                                                 to 99 alumni. We will have the next induction ceremony in August of 2011.
                                                 A few members of our Academy are profiled: Burd Hikes for a posthumous
  table of contents                              donation to the Department, Helm Wilden for the PCI Medal of Honor, and
                                                 Tom Healy for a fish, a big fish.

dr. richard e. Honrath memorial, 1961—2009
                             Dr. Richard Honrath, a member of the Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty
                             since 1992, died in April 2009 in a tragic kayak accident. Richard came to Michigan
                             Tech after completing his Ph.D. at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. In the
                             seventeen years that he spent at Michigan Tech, he built an Atmospheric Sciences
                             program that received international recognition. He did ground breaking work in
                             his field on the understanding of intercontinental pollutant transport by establishing
                             an Atmospheric Sciences observatory on the remote Pico Mountain in the Azores.
                             He also did important work on understanding the photochemical production of
                             atmospheric nitrogen oxides at a research site in Greenland. His work in the Azores
                             and Greenland earned him the Michigan Tech Research Award in 2006. Richard also
                             dedicated his time to the education and mentoring of students and worked to establish
                             Michigan Tech’s atmospheric sciences doctoral program.
Outside his professional life, Richard was an avid outdoorsman spending time hiking, Nordic skiing, biking, and
whitewater kayaking. His death is a tragedy for his family, students, friends, and colleagues. He is survived by
his wife, Lori, son Ramey, and daughter Prabha.
To honor Richard and to support his vision of scholarship, a memorial fund has been established. This fund will
be used to support the annual Richard E. Honrath Memorial Lecture. Lecturers will be internationally recognized
scholars in the arena of Atmospheric Sciences who will interact substantially with graduate students during their
visit. Donations may be made to the Richard E. Honrath Memorial Fund through the Michigan Tech Fund website:

                                  R. Andrew Swartz
                                  Dr. R. Andrew Swartz joined the Civil and Environmental faculty as an Assistant
                                  Professor in January, 2010. His area of teaching interest is structural engineering
                                  including: undergraduate-level structural analysis and design courses, as well as
                                  graduate-level structural dynamics courses.
                                  His research is focused in the area of smart structural technologies for wireless
                                  monitoring of civil infrastructure systems. He has developed a wireless monitoring
                                  system for data collection, embedded data interrogation, active sensing, and control.
                                  The result of these efforts is the Narada wireless sensing system which is a wireless
                                  sensing system developed specifically for dense installation in civil structures.
                                  To date, Narada has been field validated for data collection, embedded system
                                  identification, and structural health monitoring on bridges in the U.S., Taiwan, and
                                  Korea, in addition to wind turbines in Germany.
Dr. Swartz recently completed his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Michigan. He has a baccalaureate
degree in civil engineering from the Michigan Tech, and MS degrees in electrical and civil engineering from the
University of Michigan. He has received numerous awards including: Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute
(GESI) Fellow (2008), Best student paper award: SPIE 11th International Symposium on Nondestructive Evaluation
for Health Monitoring and Diagnostics (2006), and Dare-to-Dream Entrepreneurship Opportunity Grant (2006). He
has published a book chapter, eight technical and peer reviewed papers, and numerous conference proceedings in his
academic career.

strategic Faculty Hiring initiative
SFHI faculty hires are intended to cut across academic disciplines to focus on a research theme. The search for faculty
specializing in sustainability was conducted during the 2008-09 Academic year. One of those new hires has a partial ap-
pointment with the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.

                                  and Civil and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Wu completed his Ph.D. at Harvard
                                  University in Atmospheric Chemistry and was one of the first faculty members hired
                                  in the cross disciplinary sustainability initiative. His research focuses on atmospheric
                                  chemistry, air quality and global environmental change. Since joining Michigan
                                  Tech, he has been awarded a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Early
                                  Career Award, receiving $299,596 from the EPA to investigate the effects of changing
                                  land use and land cover on atmospheric chemistry and air quality. He is also co-
                                  investigator with a team of Michigan Tech researchers who received $452,000 last fall
                                  to study the impact of climate change on wildfires and the resulting impact on human
                                  health. He has recently been named a winner of the 2010 Ralph E. Powe Junior
                                  Faculty Enhancement Award given annually by Oak Ridge Associated Universities
                                  (ORAU) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

      Heavy Construction Competition – Great Lakes Region
      A team of six Michigan Tech students placed second in the Associated Schools of
      Construction Great Lakes Region Student Competition, Heavy/Civil Division held
      in Downers Grove, IL. The team, comprised of members of the Pavement Design
      Construction and Materials Enterprise, were required to complete a construction
      proposal in 16 hours using only their knowledge and what they brought with them.
      The project proposal was for the construction of a highway intersection in Texas
      that was constructed by Kiewit Construction, Texas District. Members of the actual
      project and administration team were the judges. Dr. Kris Mattila was the team
      advisor and traveled to the competition with them. Team members included Derek
      Weichlein (Team Captain), Whitney Schoep, Nathan Comstock, Ryan Patrick,
      Steffanie Pepin and Ben Kohler.
