Our research is without boundaries. We establish mechanisms for engineering disciplines, departments across the college, and external corporate and government partners to share space

and ideas to make the world a better place. Our insights and discoveries influence national and international forums on emerging issues in engineering and beyond.

Modeling the solubility of organic compounds

By studying the reactions of hydrophilic organic compounds to high salt concentrations, a research team in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering successfully identified a model that accurately describes the solubility of organic compounds.
