Department Chair Amit Kanvinde Receives 2018 ASCE State of the Art of Civil Engineering Award

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!
