CICI - CENTER FOR THE INTEGRATION OF COMPOSITES INTO INFRASTRUCTURE
The Center for the Integration of Composites into Infrastructure is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center which began operations in July 2009. The primary objective of the center is to usher applications of composites in civil and military infrastructures to the next level through collaborative efforts between West Virginia University, North Carolina State University, the University of Miami, Florida, Nanjing University of Technology, Nanjing, China and the University of Texas at Arlington, Texas. The focus areas will synergize different fibers and polymers to create new application areas; thus expanding market potential.
The mission of CICI is to accelerate the adoption of polymer composites and innovated construction material into infrastructure and transportation applications through collaborative research
Industrial Advisory Board Meetings are held twice a year. Please contact Dr. Hota GangaRao for more information on meeting dates.
