Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Power Poles
Dr. Fouad has been a national leader in the area of prestressed concrete poles. He has been conducting research on spun prestressed concrete poles since early 1980s. Research and development project aims to study the flexural behavior of spun concrete poles reinforced with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) bars. His research resulted in numerous publications in this area as well as a number of patents. He currently chairs the PCI Committee on Prestressed Concrete Poles; his efforts on the committee resulted in a number of award winning reports. A number of technical sessions at national conferences were organized and moderated by Dr. Fouad.
