Yoon-moon Chun, Ph.D.|
Dr. Chun received his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Civil Engineering from the City University of Seoul, Korea in 1994. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in May 1999 and December 2002, respectively.
For six months in 1994, he worked as a civil engineer in the City of Seoul, Korea, and was introduced to functions of various departments including Sewerage Department and Flood Control Department. The topic of his Master's study at UW-Milwaukee was manufacture of concrete masonry bricks, blocks, and paving stones using fly ash, bottom ash, and used foundry sand. His Ph.D. work was on the use of fibrous residuals from pulp and paper mills in concrete. During his graduate studies, he worked either as a concrete laboratory assistant, research assistant, project ssistant, or teaching assistant; and he gained hands-on experience in testing of materials and concrete specimens, and in proportioning and producing concrete mixtures.
Since January 2003, he has been working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for By-;Products Utilization. His responsibilities include training laboratory assistants with ASTM test procedures, and maintaining and calibrating some testing equipments. He has also been involved with researches on the use of post-consumer glass, High-Carbon fly ash, steel fibers, wood ash, cement kiln dust, limestone quarry fines, and foundry industry silica-dust in such cement-based materials as concrete, controlled low-strength materials (CLSM), roller-compacted concrete (RCC), and self-consolidating concrete (SCC).
His publications to-date include the following:
