Abstract: Critical issues facing society in ten subdisciplines of civil engineering are defined and the research required to provide solutions to these issues in each area is identified. The ten subdisciplines are categorized as construction engineering and management; enery; environmental (sanitary) engineering; geotechnical engineering; hydraulics, coastal, ocean, and irrigation engineering; structural engineering and structural mechanics; surveying and photogrammetry; and transportation engineering. Each subdiscipline is examined within the context of six societal needs including shelter; food, air and water; public safety; conservation; energy; and transportation. A total of 182 critical research needs is identified.

Subject Headings: Hydraulic engineering | Ocean engineering | Engineering mechanics | Sanitary engineering | Structural engineering | Transportation engineering | Geotechnical engineering | Construction engineering
