UC Davis CEE Department Chair Amit Kanvinde received the 2018 ASCE State of the Art of Civil Engineering Award for his paper, “Predicting Fracture in Civil Engineering Steel Structures: State of the Art,” published in the Journal of Structural Engineering in March 2017.
This is a society-wide award for the best state-of-the-art paper in any of the 38 journals published by ASCE or any other ASCE publication (book or book chapter) during the 12 month period from July 2016 – June 2017.
According to ASCE, “Because the science and art of civil engineering can cope with information expansion only if its most gifted practitioners will review and interpret the state-of-the-art for the benefit of their colleagues, in 1966 the professional associates of John D. Winter, M.ASCE, endowed this prize. It is anticipated that a direct benefit of this award will be the scholarly review, evaluation and documentation of the scientific and technical information needed by the profession.”
Congratulations, Dr. Kanvinde!
