A&M-Commerce Team Gets in the Mix at Concrete Competition

A team of A&M-Commerce students competed in the Pervious Concrete Cylinder Competition, held Oct. 23 during the American Concrete Institute's Concrete Convention in Dallas, Texas.

The competition challenged undergraduate university teams from around the world to apply sustainability concepts and their knowledge of concrete mixture design to produce pervious concrete, which balances permeability and splitting tensile strength.

Teams were judged in two categories: cylinder performance and best-in-show mixture. Coached by Assistant Professor Ayman Elzohairy, the A&M-Commerce team performed well, ranking 19 out of 32 teams.

Team members included:

  • Orlando Campbell
  • Alexander Dupree
  • Niraj Khatiwada
  • John Miller
  • Josue Rodriguez
  • Chyna Thompson
  • My-Linh Van
  • Andrew Young
