Isaac L. Howard is the Materials & Construction Industries Endowed Chair in the Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) department who also works with the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS).
Research Interest
Construction materials and infrastructure are primary interests, where characterization, rehabilitation, recycling, or interfacing materials/design with construction are focus areas. Airfield and highway flexible pavements are of particular interest. Materials background includes: aggregates, aluminum, asphalt, emulsions, chemically stabilized soil, concrete, fiber reinforced polymer composites, geosynthetics, wood.
Spending time with family.
