From 1947 to 1996, the Colorado State University Department of Civil Engineering issued reprints of engineering papers, bulletins, and documents as the series Civil Engineering Reports. University faculty and students authored most reports, and the department assigned report numbers in order of acquisition for each year. The series contains more than 2,000 reports, of which approximately 1,200 are available in this digital collection.
