Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) was founded in 1950 and became an autonomous
campus with The University of Alabama System in 1969. Since that time, it
has grown into one of the nation’s premiere research universities,
offering a challenging hands-on curriculum that ensures our graduates are
prepared to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Welcome to My Website
Hi, my name is
Dr. John A. Gilbert and I am a professor emeritus in the Department of Mechanical and
Aerospace Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). I also
keep active as a private consultant.
This site includes an executive
summary which describes what I've done at
UAH and elsewhere.
Having graduated students from 5 different departments, I'm
always looking for new opportunities to expand my horizons. For those of you who may
be interested in working with me, I have posted a copy of
my curriculum vitae
along with brief descriptions of some of our research
on this site.
If you're here to see what I taught
and what motivated me to teach it,
course descriptions and
copies of the notes and manuals that I used in class are included.
As many of you know, I served as faculty advisor to the UAH Student
the American Society of Civil Engineers for twenty-nine years (1985-2014). You
may want to visit the UAH
ASCE Student Chapter web
site to see how much we accomplished during this period.
My forty year
involvement with concrete canoeing prompted me to serve as webmaster for ConcreteCanoe.org,

Most folks who know me well
also know that I keep pretty busy. For those of you that don't,
I've included some information about my other
