Michel Bruneau, P.E., Ph.D., professor of civil, structural, and environmental engineering (CSEE) at the University at Buffalo, N.Y., is the 2012 recipient of AISC’s prestigious T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award. He’s being honored for his papers on steel plate shear wall design published in AISC’s Engineering Journal and the proceedings of the Canadian Conference on Earthquake Engineering.
Presented annually by AISC, the T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award recognizes an outstanding lecturer and author whose technical paper(s) are considered an outstanding contribution to the engineering literature on fabricated structural steel. The award, which includes a $15,000 prize, will be presented at the 2012 NASCC: The Steel Conference at the Gaylord Texan Convention Center in Dallas, April 18-21.
”The Higgins jury quickly identified Michel as a top candidate, and the subsequent discussions and deliberations served to further elevate him,” said Charlie Carter, AISC vice president and chief structural engineer. “The jury noted in particular the impressive extent and breadth of Michel’s contributions as a researcher and engineer.”
