  • Engineering With Nature: An Atlas, Volume 3 Showcases Global Innovation and Collaboration in Nature-Based Solutions

    The newest edition of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Engineering With Nature (EWN) Atlas series, Volume 3, will be released May 22, 2024. Building on the success of its predecessors, Volume 3 continues to spotlight the remarkable projects and initiatives harnessing the power of nature-based solutions (NBS) around the world.
  • ERDC researchers inspire national commercial promoting Army Civilian Careers

    The two research scientists from the U.S. Army Engineer and Research Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) served as the inspiration behind, and subject matter experts on, the production of “Ice Core Research,” a 30-second commercial that captures an Army Civilian physical scientist and his team as they drill ice core samples.
  • Inspiring the next generation

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) recently participated in Bring a Child to Work Day at the Pentagon. With thousands in attendance, diverse families from all walks of life were introduced to the exciting and innovative research and development projects and programs conducted at ERDC.
  • Analyzing levees to save lives

    The Levee Screening Tool (LST) 2 is a web-based application that quantifies risk estimates based on the likelihood of flood loading, expected performance of the levee under those loads and the potential consequences of a levee breach or overtopping.
  • Protecting Dam Facilities with innovative new technology

    As terrorists and extremist groups turn to less sophisticated methods to inflict harm, the use of vehicles in these types of attacks has shown the potential for catastrophic damages to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) projects. In response, USACE researchers developed the DETER (Deployable Expedient Traffic Entry Regulator) vehicle barrier for Soft Asset Protection at Dam Facilities.
  • Multi-laboratory project explores ways to deliver manpower, supplies over complex Arctic shorelines

    Earlier this month, Integrated Support for Operations in Polar Seas (ISOPS) team members – comprised of interdisciplinary personnel from ERDC’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) and the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory – conducted fieldwork in Utqiagvik, Alaska, aimed at accelerating development of environmental support tools for Logistics-Over-The-Shore (LOTS) operations across Arctic coastal boundaries.
  • ERDC researcher using insects to help the Warfighter and the Nation

    ERDC's Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) is known to discover, develop, deliver and sustain trusted engineering and scientific solutions impacting built and natural infrastructure for the Warfighter and the Nation. Researcher Anne McCarthy takes that mission seriously, so she's called in Madagascar hissing cockroaches for her project "Insect antennae for odorant-driven real-time decision processing," which basically means their antennae will help identify and sense chemicals in an area.
  • ERDC’s RD24 proves huge success

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) recently hosted their Research and Development 2024 (RD24) workshop.
  • ERDC hosts over 100 local students during annual Earth Day celebration

    More than 100 students from the Academy of Innovation, Porter’s Chapel, and St. Aloysious High School attended ERDC’s annual Earth Day Celebration Monday, April 8, in the ERDC Headquarters Building Auditorium. Engineers from several of ERDC’s laboratories set up interactive displays in the Atrium and spread information to the local students about how they can help keep the Earth healthy while also introducing them to the work done at the agency.
