Mars Reconnaissance: Civil Engineering Advances for Human Exploration

The first human crew to arrive on Mars will face civil engineering (CE) concerns upon landing (e.g., engine plume interactions with the surface, bearing capability of the subsurface) and later surface operations. To date, no campaign plan has targeted high-priority CE knowledge gaps to significantly reduce risks and costs of human missions to Mars.
