Professor Michele Barbato has been awarded the 2020 Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize for “his outstanding research in structural engineering and engineering mechanics, with emphasis on finite element response sensitivity analysis, seismic response steel-concrete composite systems, seismic pounding mitigation, performance-based hurricane engineering and hurricane hazard mitigation, nonstationary stochastic dynamics, multi-hazard performance-based engineering, and sustainable construction materials.”
The award will be presented during the Society’s Annual Convention, October 28-31, 2020, in Anaheim, CA.
The Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize is the highest level mid-career research award in all areas of civil engineering. This award is given annually to individuals with notable achievements and contributions in research with respect to all disciplines of civil engineering. This award was first established by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) board of direction in 1946 and was given for the first time in 1949.
Barbato joins a select group of previous Huber Prize winners at UC Davis, including Ross Boulanger, Yannis Dafalias, Jason DeJong, Ed Idriss, Amit Kanvinde, and Jay Lund
