Research Into Optimizing Precast Concrete for Explosion and Blast Loading - University of Texas
The PCI Foundation has awarded the $4,000 2019 Alan Mattock Scholarship to Thomas Mander, a PhD candidate at University of Texas Civil Engineering Department for his research on 'Unified Blast Response Limits for Precast Concrete Wall Panels'. Mander works with advisor Adolfo Matamoras, Professor and Peter T. Flawn Chair at University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA).
"My passion for precast concrete started during my undergraduate studies and continued to develop during my work experience," said Mander. Mander was also one of five graduate students to receive a 2019-2020 PCI Daniel P. Jenny Fellowship.
