Professor Craig Foster

Congratulations to CME Professor Craig Foster for being named a 2015-16 US Fulbright Scholar! Professor Foster’s work is to study Earthen Buildings in India. Earthen buildings are an old technology experiencing renewed interest, both in developing and developed countries, for economic and environmental reasons. Dr. Foster’s winning proposal focuses on creating material models that can be used to examine mechanical behavior, predict safe use, and improve performance. This research will examine the interaction of the constituent particles and the addition of natural fibers for ductility, and then the mathematical models will be validated and improved by experiments at the host institution, building a collaboration between experimentalists and modelers.
