Pawan also designs and rehabilitates steel, post-tensioned, reinforced brick masonry, and wood structures. His expertise includes the retrofit and rehabilitation of unbonded post-tensioned structures, as well as the development of a simple device to nondestructively measure the pre-stressing force in tendons in post-tensioned structures.
