Post-Fire Ground Treatments for Protection of Critical Transportation Structures, Year 2

The main objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of post-fire ground treatments in mitigating soil erosion, runoff, and debris flows towards developing guidelines for conducting needs and feasibility assessments to enhance post-fire emergency response actions. A coupled laboratory and numerical research program will be used to determine a priori means for assessing post-fire ground treatments for soils near critical transportation infrastructure.
