  • Virginia Military Institute - The Power of Engineering
    in graduate school at Virginia Tech In the end though the 1st Class cadets Damian Arnaiz Tyler Brickles Peter Buehlmann Andrew Rotermund and Warner Thomas found that their design had been so favored by the judges that they d placed not only higher than any other American team but higher than any team from Virginia had ever placed in this competition They d also set a record as the highest placed VMI team so far a team from the Institute that included Charuwat had placed fourth at WEFTEC in 2012 It s a huge huge feat for a small undergraduate college that s not based on research noted Lt Col Tim Moore II 97 associate professor of civil and environmental engineering who accompanied the cadets to WEFTEC Ours was the only project that was entirely sustainable noted Brickles when asked what gave the VMI team an edge The toilets he explained are designed to safely compost human waste into fertilizer and the showers use water heated in two liter soda bottles on the roof since Pampoyo has no electricity It was also the only project that had actually been put into practice in the real world We did it before they even judged us on it added Thomas Last summer Brickles Buehlmann and Thomas had been part of a group Keydets Without Borders that built eco latrine solar shower combinations for villagers who d previously had no toilets and no access to heated water for bathing Buehlmann noted that their design is truly universal We designed it so it can be almost copy pasted in different regions of the world he said adding that the only real requirements for implementation are a stable water source and sunlight All of the cadets agreed that starting early and including a Bolivian engineer Afnan Akiyama in their planning were the key ingredients to their project s success The idea for the project began over winter furlough last year when Brickles went for a job interview with an engineering firm that is one of the sponsors of the Virginia Water Environment Association s statewide student competition each May An employee at that firm recommended that Brickles enter that competition and when Brickles returned to VMI Moore suggested that he design a toilet and shower combination for use in Bolivia At that point Brickles assembled a team and the group set to work The first thing we did was look at Google Earth said Buehlmann What s there that we can use Because of the lack of electricity the cadets had to find another way to heat water for bathing Soda bottles became the most obvious choice since the Pampoyo villagers are avid consumers of soda By February Akiyama had gotten the word out to the villagers that they needed to save their soda bottles for the coming summer project All of the cadets praised Akiyama who s been working with Moore in Bolivia for the past four years and made himself available via Skype

  • Virginia Military Institute - Project Supports Holiday Fundraiser
    cadets joined 20 25 civilians to cut and raise a frame for a 10 by 16 foot shed The shed was auctioned off to benefit Project Horizon at the group s annual Deck the Halls event Nov 22 Project Horizon is an organization that assists victims of domestic abuse in Rockbridge County Col Mullen and the cadets at VMI do something for us almost every year said Judy Casteele executive director of Project Horizon It gives cadets an opportunity to do something with engineering as well as help our organization We are very excited about the continued partnership Mullen said the partnership with Project Horizon goes back to 1999 when cadets along with Washington and Lee University students and other timber framers constructed what became Lisa s House the organization s domestic violence shelter At the time timber framing was a novel concept to cadets but since then the skills needed for such projects have been passed down from year to year Over Fall FTX we had 12 civilian students who were paying through the Timber Framers Guild to learn the basics of timber framing said Mullen which means we ve come full circle because when we did the first project none of the cadets knew anything about timber framing and we hired timber framing guild members as instructors Now we re helping to teach novice timber framers Though the basic plans for the buildings are usually from outside sources cadets make adjustments to the design and figure out all the joinery The most valuable part of the experience comes once the construction process begins however When you teach engineering students and you draw up the plans somehow they have to become reality and that never quite goes the way you plan In the transition from a design on paper

  • Virginia Military Institute - Class Creates Design for Future Timber Framing Project
    for Future Timber Framing Project For the third year in a row cadets in Col Grigg Mullen Jr 76 s wood design class are designing a structure for use by the wider community This year the project is a 64 by 80 foot wooden shelter for the Lexington Farmer s Market which is held each Wednesday morning from March through November in a large city owned parking lot between Washington and Nelson streets The shelter will protect vendors and shoppers from inclement weather while eliminating the need for vendors to bring pop up tents which can blow away in a strong wind explained Mullen This fall the 27 1st Class cadets enrolled in Civil Engineering 405 are working in groups of three to come up with designs that they will present to Mitch Wapner the market s organizer in December It will be up to Wapner to either select one design from the nine proposals submitted or pick and choose different elements from among the various designs to come up with the one that he feels will be most appropriate both aesthetically and architecturally This one was my son s idea said Mullen crediting the inspiration for the farmer s market shelter to Grigg Mullen III 08 a lab assistant in VMI s physics department He explained that the younger Mullen and his wife Maj Acacia Mullen a reference librarian at Preston Library are good friends with Wapner and it was during a conversation with him that the idea for a farmer s market shelter was born The idea is to put up something that covers that area but still allows traffic through it and preserves the parking spaces the older Mullen noted Once a median with trees in it is removed the city will gain two parking spaces as

  • Virginia Military Institute - New Lab Offers Safe Location
    Built Environment Assessment and Modeling Lab more commonly known as the BEAM lab in Morgan Hall the annex to Nichols Engineering Building Coordinating the project were Col Charles Chuck Newhouse professor of civil and environmental engineering and Maj Matt Swenty assistant professor in the same department Newhouse and Swenty explained that for the past several years civil and environmental engineering majors had struggled to find a place for to test weight bearing structures At the same time professors in the department had no dedicated facility where they could safely demonstrate engineering principles for their students The big need we saw was to get something where we could test safely said Swenty Luckily neither Newhouse nor Swenty had to look far before they found just what they needed an 18 by 13 foot section of a much larger room that was designed and built in the mid 1960s specifically for structures testing In recent years the area had been used by the mechanical engineering department for a variety of projects With walls two feet thick and a floor three feet thick plus over 150 anchors for holding beams and columns the spot Newhouse and Swenty found was ideal for their purposes Testing is much safer in this room than in classrooms or other labs because energy is directed towards the floor with its thick layer of concrete said Newhouse Among the classes that will be using the lab most extensively are CEE 301 Structures Theory and CEE 327 Reinforced Concrete but both professors stressed that they hope all cadets in their department will benefit Cadet research should benefit from the new lab and in fact it already has The lab was still being refurbished this summer when Cadet Jacob Freeman 15 moved his materials in to work on a project testing

  • Cadets Train to Design Roads of the Future
    America s transportation infrastructure in a way that is efficient innovative and safe Cadets are using top of the line software in combination with fieldwork get the most out of the course I have learned that transportation engineering is a lot more complex than what I anticipated based on my initial interest said Cadet Christian Richardson 13 This subject matter will be very important in the near future as America s aging infrastructure requires updates and new designs to support the population and increased traffic volumes Members of the class are also learning that flawed transportation design can put drivers in danger People s lives are on the line with your designs said Nicholas Gore 13 This is why our professors in the civil engineering department hand out so much homework and grade our work harshly They are preparing us for the real world where major mistakes can end up in court Their instructor assistant professor of civil engineering Maj Wakeel Idewu is taking his students outside of the classroom to study real world scenarios I m trying to incorporate real life things into the class either by bringing the class to the field or bring the field to the class said Idewu I try to pick projects that are in progress or are being planned by the city and I pose that as a project for them to work out It is a great way to tie everything together said Gore He likes to get us out of the classroom and give us the opportunity to really apply the information we have learned in class and through this experience you realize how important transportation design has become Idewu is finding ways to challenge his students basing his assignments on local traffic patterns We have used a lot of real
