At the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Mr. Stutzman operates the Engineering Laboratory's (EL) microstructure laboratory. This laboratory consists of a scanning electron microscope with energy dispersive x-ray analysis, computer image analyzer, light microscopy, and an automated x-ray powder diffractometer. The laboratory provides microanalytical support on research projects conducted by personnel of BFRL. These projects include the microstructural and chemical characterization of cement clinker, cement paste, cement paste/aggregate interfacial regions, high performance concrete, concrete, and mortar.

Mr. Stutzman is a member of ASTM C01 on cement and C09 on concrete, the Compositional Analysis Committee, and is Chairman of the Task Groups on Microscopy and Quantitative X-Ray Powder Diffraction Methods, and the Microscopy Society of America.
