Research

Environmental and Water Resources


 

Overview

Within the broad field of environmental and water resources engineering, we focus on flow and transport in porous media.

Research topics include:

  • Clogging by colloid deposits
  • Mixing in groundwater aquifers
  • Hydraulics of pervious concrete pavement
  • Stormwater treatment with recycled tire crumb rubber

Faculty in this research area also enjoy teaching fluid mechanics, hydrology and groundwater. For further information, visit http://carbon.ucdenver.edu/~dmays/courses.html.
