Fred Aguayo, PhD, Texas State University: “Rapid Setting Cements for Structural Applications / Overview of the Concrete Industry Management Program at Texas State University


Dr. Fred Aguayo is an Assistant Professor in the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program housed in the Department of Engineering Technology at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. Since his arrival at Texas State in 2016, Dr. Aguayo’s primary research interest have been in enhancing concrete durability through the use of emerging technologies and alternative materials. His research group has been active in evaluating the mechanical performance and chemical deterioration processes of various advanced concrete systems, while also working on developing and improving accelerated laboratory methods for predicting their long-term performance in the field. He is a well-established researcher on concrete durability with over 10 years of experience working with private industry and public agencies, especially with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). He is an active member of the American Concrete Institute, and participates in several committees related to concrete durability (ACI 201) and material science of cementitious systems (ACI 236). Dr. Aguayo received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in Infrastructure Materials Engineering, where he worked under the supervision of Dr. Kevin J. Folliard
