Paul E. Stutzman is a physical scientist in the Inorganic Materials Group of the Materials and Structural Systems Division (MSSD) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Paul Stutzman is a physical scientist in the Inorganic Materials Group of the Materials and Structural Systems Division of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). His interests include measurement of microstructural features of clinker, cement, and mineral admixtures and developing means to assess the interactions of cement – admixtures on the hydration process through real-time quantitative x-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscopy.
Paul is a member of ASTM C1 (Cement) and C9 (Concrete) chairs the Compositional Analysis Committee Task Groups on Microscopy and Quantitative X-Ray Powder Diffraction Methods. He is also a member of the C1 Executive Committee and C1 Secretary, and is on the Editorial Board of the ASTM Journal Advances in Civil Engineering Materials.
In 2013 Paul was named a Fellow of ASTM and received their International Award of Merit for distinguished service and outstanding participation. Paul received a NIST Bronze award in 2008 for efforts in developing and promoting a powder diffraction method for compositional analysis of cements within ASTM. In 1992 and in 2008, he received the P. H. Bates Award for outstanding papers, "Cement Clinker Characterization by Scanning Electron Microscopy" and "Phase Analysis of Hydraulic Cements by X-Ray Powder Diffraction: Precision, Bias, and Qualification."
