Jan 30, 2017. RUTE completed a structural engineering research project made possible by the NSF SBIR program. Adrian Corella, PE, RUTE's Lead Engineer made the success possible along with a stellar group of geotechnical engineering, segmental bridge and wind foundation design experts. RUTE is supremely thankful to the American taxpayers for entrusting us. RUTE will pay that grant forward with in kind support and donations to Gorge Training Facility, our demonstration project that will benefit energy and engineering education programs in Eastern Oregon.
