David Corr serves as Principal Engineer & Materials Consulting Group Director at CTLGroup and is one of the nation’s leading experts related to structural performance, material characterization, and material development. Dr. Corr’s knowledge focuses on both traditional and emerging building materials. Specifically, he has studied the durability of concrete, the rheology and fresh-state behavior of concrete, and fracture and cracking in cement-based materials.
Prior to joining CTLGroup, Dr. Corr was Clinical Professor and the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Northwestern University. His most current research focused on nanotechnology of cement-based materials, large-scale additive manufacturing (3D printing), and cross-laminated timber. Many of Dr. Corr’s studies used imaging technologies and the advanced nanoscale characterization facilities available at Northwestern University. Dr. Corr has also conducted research in structural health monitoring, structural diagnostics, data analysis of structural performance, failure analysis and forensic engineering. He is a member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the past Chair of the Cements Division of the American Ceramic Society and is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Illinois.
