Title:Post-Fire Ground Treatments for Protection of Critical Transportation Structures, Year 1
Principal Investigators:Christopher Bareither and Paul Heyliger
University:Colorado State University
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-447
RiP #:01656411
RH Display ID:15662
Keywords:erosion control, evaluation and assessment, fires, ground cover, laboratory tests, numerical analysis, runoff, soil stabilization


The main objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of post-fire ground treatments in mitigating soil erosion, runoff, and debris flows towards developing guidelines for conducting needs and feasibility assessments to enhance post-fire emergency response actions. A coupled laboratory and numerical research program will be used to determine a priori means for assessing post-fire ground treatments for soils near critical transportation infrastructure.
