Director, MAST Laboratory, Professor, Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering
Arturo Schultz's research focuses on the design, analysis and behavior of concrete, masonry and steel-concrete composite structures. Recent research topics have included the stability of slender masonry walls, distortional fatigue in multi-girder steel bridges, lateral stability of prestressed concrete girders, evaluation of earth pressure behind highway retaining walls, and the integration of large-scale experiments and numerical simulation of structural systems under three-dimensional loading.
Schultz received a B.S. summa cum laude in Civil Engineering from Southern Methodist University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is a faculty collaborator with the Multi-Axial Subassemblage Testing (MAST) Laboratory.
