Associate Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Hubler’s research addresses structural evaluation and redesign. Her research focuses on cementitious materials (primarily concrete), micro-structure quantification and design, material permeability, fracture mechanics, micro- and meso- scale experimental testing and simulation techniques, failure prediction of construction materials, and construction material health risks and toxicity.

courses taught

  • AREN 4315 - Design of Masonry Structures
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Covers modern masonry construction; properties and behavior of the reinforced masonry component materials, clay and concrete masonry units, mortar, grout, and steel reinforcement; vertical and lateral load types and intensities; and design of reinforced masonry walls, beams and columns by the strength design method.
  • CVEN 3161 - Mechanics of Materials 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Spring 2022
    Addresses concepts of stress and strain; material properties, axial loading, torsion, simple bending, and transverse shear; analysis of stress and strain; and deflections of beams. Includes selected experimental and computational laboratories. Degree credit not granted for this course and MCEN 2063.
  • CVEN 4899 - Civil Engineering Senior Project Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2024
    Provides a simulated real world design and construction planning experience where teams integrate across multiple civil engineering sub-disciplines to create a solution that satisfies multiple constraints, including design, client requirements, budget, schedule, technical, regulatory, and societal. Final deliverables include: detailed design drawings, specifications, cost estimate, project schedule, construction plan, oral and written presentation.
  • CVEN 5585 - Advanced Topics in Reinforced Concrete Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Spring 2024
    Covers design and analysis topics for prestressed concrete and/or reinforced concrete structures. Includes review of the current ACI design code, slabs, prestressed concrete, seismic design, folded plates and shells, finite element analysis, and other topics determined by class interest. Undergraduates may enroll with the permission of the instructor. Recommended prerequisite: CVEN 4555.
  • CVEN 5835 - Special Topics for Seniors/Grads
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Supervised study of special topics of interest to students under instructor guidance. May be repeated up to 15 total credit hours.
  • CVEN 6161 - Advanced Mechanics of Materials 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2023
    Fundamentals of continuum mechanics, finite deformations, Lagrangian finite strains, Cauchy and Piola Kirchoff stress tensors, plasticity and thermo-elasticity, elements of damage mechanics, elements of fracture mechanics, rehological and visoelastic theories, and modern experimental techniques. Recommended prerequisite: CVEN 5161.
  • CVEN 6945 - Master's Degree Cand
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
