Presentation Topics:

· How Empirical Models Can Predict Wet Bulb Globe Temperatures for Urban Areas

Presenter: Hughes Milling
Project: Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE), project investigated urban heat island effects, conducted under Citadel funded program to prepare students for graduate school.

· eVTOL Capstone Design for Florence Regional Airport

Presenters: Thomas Aycock, Carson Holroyd, Alex Wulfhorst, Will Summers, Musukula McClain, Mary Coastal Watkins
Project: Design of airfield and terminal infrastructure needed to accommodate eVTOL mobility for Florence Regional Airport. Using FAA criteria and standards for engineering and construction, design-build student teams develop solutions that include: 1.) airfield modifications, 2.) connection with existing facilities, 3.) taxiway/ramp construction, 4.) stormwater drainage improvements, 5.) eVTOL maintenance and charging facilities, 6.) terminal design and construction, 7.) ground transportation improvements, 8.) project constructability, 9.) site logistics and safety, 10.) project phases, schedule and cost estimates.

· Habitat for Humanity Home Construction Projects, Coordination and Lessons Learned, CONE 470

Presenters: Jake Heaton, Sam Thomas
Project: Construction engineering students work together to perform a curriculum practicum to plan, perform and document home construction projects for local Habitat for Humanity agencies, for course credit, CONE 470, Construction Practicum, focused on developing field engineering skills through performance of practical, community-based projects.

  • Time : 11:30 am - 1:00 pm (UTC+0)
