Published May 27, 2009

A multidisciplinary team of researchers from Texas A&M University at Qatar and Texas A&M University has received a contract from Qatar Science & Technology Park to develop a novel method for using polymers to stabilize soils under pavement structures in Qatar.

This research project combines the civil engineering expertise of Dr. Eyad Masad associate professor of engineering, and Dr. Dallas Little, professor of civil engineering, with the chemistry expertise of Dr. Hassan Bazzi, senior assistant professor of chemistry, and the physics expertise of Howard Hanley, research scientist. The results of the study are expected to improve road conditions, increase roads' service life and reduce road maintenance costs.
