Academic Information

Degree Program: Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering
Academic Focus: Concrete Materials and Rigid Pavement


Research Interests

Pangil Choi is conducting research on concrete materials and rigid pavement design/construction/maintenance. Most of the research projects he has been working on are sponsored by Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Korean government. His dissertation addresses distress mechanisms of concrete pavement, most of which have not been properly addressed, primarily due to the quite complicated interactions among variables. His approach is to enhance the accuracy of theoretical models and validate with large dataset obtained from 8-year research study conducted for TxDOT. His work is expected to improve not only rigid pavement design, but current maintenance practices of rigid pavement distresses.
