Research & Projects


Chico State Concrete Industry Management Professor Dr. Tanya Komas, together with Chico State CIM students, have for the last two years been conducting historic preservation tests at Pointe Du Hoc in Normandy, France. This exciting research has involved in-depth study of historic military engineering documents, on site non-destructive testing, and industry leading lab testing. Funds for research and travel have generously been provided by industry partnership.
