W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 17 December 2008-Toy S. Poole, Ph.D., a chemist in the Research and Development Center at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Vicksburg, Miss., has become a member of the ASTM International board of directors for 2009-2011.

The 25-person ASTM board has responsibility for directing the affairs of ASTM International, one of the largest developers of international voluntary consensus standards in the world.

An ASTM member since 1985, Poole joined Committees C01 on Cement, C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates and E11 on Quality and Statistics the following year. An active participant in numerous C01 and C09 subcommittees, Poole currently serves as a member at large for both C01 and C09, and he leads C01.26 on Heat of Hydration as well as C09.66 on Concrete's Resistance to Fluid Penetration. He has previously been chair of other subcommittees in both C01 and C09 and secretary of the main C09 committee.

Poole, who received the 2004 ASTM Award of Merit for his contributions to standards development through data evaluation, statistical analysis and precision and bias statements, has been honored with a number of other awards. He became an honorary committee member of both C01 and C09 in 2007; he received the Frank E. Richart Award in 2004 for notable contributions in his field; C09 Awards of Appreciation in 2000 and 2004; the Bryant Mather Award in 2003 for furthering the development of hydraulic cement standards; and a C01 Award of Appreciation in 1999.

The year after his graduation from the University of North Carolina with a B.S. in chemistry, Poole began his career as an electronics engineer with the U.S. Army. He then worked as a biochemistry research associate at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, S.C., and then held a position as a chemist with the state of South Carolina. He joined the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1980, and he specializes in concrete chemistry, the analysis of test method precision and bias, and the statistical analysis of research data.

Poole earned his M.S. in biology from Clemson University in Clemson, S.C., and his Ph.D. in biology from Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. He is a member of the Transportation Research Board, he holds two cement patents, and he has written numerous technical papers related to cement and concrete.

ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions around the globe.
