    Beena Sukumaran

    Professor and Chair of Civil & Environmental Engineering

    Biography:

    Beena Sukumaran is a graduate from Purdue University's geotechnical group and her research interests include studying the effect of inherent particle characteristics on shear strength of soils. Her other research interests include the use of discrete element method (DEM) to study the micro-mechanics of granular media and fuzzy set applications in geotechnical engineering. In addition, she also studies the performance of suction caissons for different soil conditions and works with the FAA to study the impact of the next generation of aircrafts on flexible pavements. She directs the research activities at the Soil Mechanics laboratory at Rowan.
