Currently, Dr. Jay Wang is engaged in the research on the impact of expansive soils on pavement and shallow foundations, and the erosion resistance of vegetation on wetland loss in Louisiana coastal areas. The methodology developed for analyzing the load and stress in pavement induced by heave/shrinkage of expansive subgrades is in the process of being implemented in engineering design.
