Shane Palmquist, PhD, PE
- Associate Professor, Ritter Professor in Civil Engineering


      Dr. Palmquist's area of specialty is in structural engineering and in performance of concrete and cementitious composites. Some of the courses he teaches include: structural analysis, design of reinforced concrete structures, steel design, and senior project. His current research includes developing a new testing set-up and apparatus for rapid determination of compressive strength of masonry block and developing a type of engineered cementitious composite with greater ductility than normal concrete. Dr. Palmquist is also investigating how modal properties affect a structure's stiffness and flexibility. Dr. Palmquist has received a collaborative funded grant to investigate how to improve bridge structures for extreme fire related events.
