Fouad conducts research in the area of reinforced concrete structures and concrete materials. His efforts have led to the development of national standards and specifications for a number of sustainable green concrete products and building systems. He has been working in the area of highway sign and traffic signal supports since for the past 20 years, offering a global perspective in green materials and construction methods.

As principal investigator on several NCHRP and DOT projects, he led a team of experts from U.S. universities whose efforts culminated in the development of the current, newly and totally revised, AASHTO Standard Specifications for Structural Supports for Highway Signs, Luminaries, and Traffic Signals. Continued research efforts in this area resulted in revising the AASHTO Standard Specifications a number of times, and the recent inclusion of fatigue provisions for the design of highway signs and traffic signal support structures.
