CESTiCC hosts Chinese Visitors
On a rainy day in late June, CESTiCC was honored to host visiting guests Dr. Xiaoduan Sun an endowed Professor from University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Mr. Shuangjie Wang and Mr. Zuo Wang from First Highway Consultants Co. associated with China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) LTD. Dr. Doug Goering, Dean of College of Engineering and Mines at UAF, introduced the visitors to his extensive research on air convection embankments and heat transfer in permafrost. The visitors were able to see the air convention embankment field site as seen below. After the field tour, Dr. Xiong Zhang and the visitors had a discussion on a CESTiCC project entitled A Bio-Wicking System to Prevent Frost Heave in Alaskan Pavements. Mr. Zuo Wang and Mr. Shuangjie Wang expressed strong interest in further collaboration and communication with CESTiCC.
