Stephen M. Stacey is a Professional Engineer (PE) and an affiliated consultant with Durability Engineers. He has over 8 years of experience in concrete materials, concrete, forensic investigations, and structural engineering. His experience concentrates on condition assessments through visual examination, destructive and nondestructive testing (NDT) of reinforced concrete structures.
Mr. Stacey’s focus areas include: concrete materials, nondestructive testing, structural health monitoring and concrete repair design. His primary work focuses on forensic investigations, including identifying structural and construction related deficiencies, as well as determining the cause of failures in concrete, metals and other structural materials. His nondestructive evaluation background is further complimented by his extensive understanding of deleterious reactions and volume instabilities in concrete.
Additionally, with his experience in concrete materials and laboratory testing, Mr. Stacey has developed specialized one-off testing and developed improvements for existing testing procedures. From his research, Mr. Stacey’s developed a novel testing method for the evaluation of alkali-silica reaction in project concrete mixtures has been incorporated by the Army Corps of Engineers specifications.
Mr. Stacey is registered as a professional engineer across several states and has a Bachelors and Masters of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He is an active voting member at American Concrete Institute (ACI), 216 Code Requirements for Determining Fire Resistance of Concrete and Masonry Construction Assemblies, ASTM 09.64 Nondestructive Testing Task group and International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) Committee 110, Guide Specifications Committee.
