Feng Mu, Ph.D., P.E.

Senior Flatwork Engineer at PNA

Dr. Feng Mu has more than 10 years of experience in concrete paving, engineering and research. He earned his master’s degree in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Hong Kong, and his doctorate degree in Pavement Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. He has authored more than 30 peer-reviewed technical papers, one of which won the Yoder Outstanding Paper for concrete pavements. He is currently serving on the Pavement Maintenance Committee of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academy of Science. He also co-chairs the Pavement Design Task Force of the American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) and oversees the development of Pavementdesigner.org. Before joining PNA, Dr. Mu was a senior Pavement Engineer at CEMEX Inc., where he focused on developing optimized concrete paving solutions for roadway, commercial and industrial applications, optimized concrete mix designs, and life cycle analysis/assessment of concrete pavements. He is an expert on numerical modeling and very experienced with the AASHTO Pavement ME Design Guide (aka MEPDG).

Thomas J. Van Dam, Ph.D., P.E., FACI, LEED AP

Dr. Van Dam is a principal at NCE with more than 30 years of civil engineering experience, specializing in pavement design and evaluation, forensic investigations, materials assessment, and sustainability. Dr. Van Dam has an excellent record in both the private sector and in academia. Over the past 10 years he has been a principal responsible for directing pavement design, materials, and sustainability groups with great success.
