Welcome to the Division of Civil and Mechanical Systems

The Civil and Mechanical Systems (CMS) Division is part of the Directorate for Engineering at the National Science Foundation.  We fund research that contributes to the knowledge base and intellectual growth in the areas of infrastructure construction and management, geotechnology, structures, dynamics and control, mechanics, and materials, sensing for civil and mechanical systems as well as the reduction of risks induced by earthquakes and other natural and technological hazards.  The division encourages cross-disciplinary partnerships at the intersections of traditional disciplines, to promote discoveries using technologies such as adaptive systems, nanotechnology and simulation to enable revolutionary advances in our nation's civil and mechanical systems.

The CMS Division is organized into five programs, each of which contains two program elements.  These programs are listed below and described in linked pages.
