Mateusz Radlinski, Ph.D., P.E.

Managing Engineer
Buildings & Structures
Menlo Park

Dr. Radlinski specializes in concrete and cement-based materials. He has extensive experience investigating problems associated with all aspects of concrete construction including installation deficiencies, concrete material failures and performance concerns in a wide range of applications, including structural building components, foundations, parking structures, bridges, floor slabs, pavements, prestressed and post-tensioned concrete, water containment and environmental structures, concrete pipe and industrial chimneys. Dr. Radlinski’s areas of expertise include analysis and optimization of concrete mix design, characterization of chemical composition and physical properties of concrete, and evaluation of durability-related concrete failures including cracking, chemical attack, corrosion, and freeze-thaw damage. He has also evaluated failures of various cement-based materials such as stucco, flooring underlayments, fiber-cement siding, asbestos-cement pipe, tile thinset, swimming pool plaster, and oilwell cement. Dr. Radlinski has conducted numerous flooring failure investigations related to moisture problems, installation, and material performance and compatibility. He has also specific expertise in condition assessment and service life analysis of asbestos-cement pipe.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Radlinski was a research assistant at Purdue University, where he contributed to several research projects funded by the Indiana Department of Transportation. That research focused on optimization of ternary cementitious systems (containing fly ash and silica fume) for bridge deck concrete, investigation into the causes for premature deterioration of joints in rigid pavement, instrumentation and monitoring of structural behavior of prestressed high-strength concrete girders and high-performance concrete bridge deck, and field installation and performance assessment of commercial rapid-setting repair materials.

Dr. Radlinski’s academic background also includes design of steel, reinforced concrete and wood structures, including a Master’s thesis on reliability-based optimization of space trusses.
