Three West Virginia University civil engineering researchers are part of a team awarded the 2016 United States Army Corps of Engineers Innovation of the Year Award for their research on composite components for locks and dam systems.
West Virginia University senior David Beahr is the recipient of a $3,000 scholarship from the Specialty Equipment Market Association.
