Biography

Dr. Chun-Hsing (Jun) Ho received his Ph.D. degree in civil engineering from the University of Utah in 2010 with an emphasis on construction materials and pavement systems. Prior to joining the faculty at NAU, Dr. Ho worked for Lake Washington Institute of Technology as lead faculty in the Civil Engineering Graphics program where he modified and developed engineering curriculum, led ABET documentation, supervised undergraduate research activities, and found an ASCE student chapter and served as the faculty supervisor. Dr. Ho has 20 years of work experience from industry and academia in the areas of building construction, railroad engineering, airport engineering, and pavement engineering. He has been in collaboration with ADOT, local consulting firms, and City of Flagstaff to seek promising asphalt mixtures that can provide longer lasting performance in the roadways. Jun is a licensed professional engineer in Taiwan with two additional registrations in structural engineering and geotechnical engineering. He is also a licensed professional engineer in the state of Washington.

Research Interests

Jun’s research interests deal with the applications of construction materials (asphalt, concrete, composites) in pavement systems; specifically concerning in how the material properties affect the durability of pavement structures using mechanical testing, viscoelastic modeling, and finite element method. His goal is to promote the sustainability and longevity of the pavement systems to increase the life cycle of structures. Dr. Ho has been a paper reviewer for the Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, ASCE and the Journal of Advances in Civil Engineering Materials, ASTM. Jun has served as member for the Airfield Pavement Committee, ASCE and AR055 Rail Transit Infrastructure Committee, TRB.  For details about the Construction Materials lab he manages, please click the link:
