Larry S. Muir, P.E., is the 2014 recipient of AISC’s T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award. Muir is being honored for his paper “Designing Compact Gussets with the Uniform Force Method,” which was published in the first quarter 2008 issue of AISC’s Engineering Journal.
Muir has been involved with structural steel in one form or another for more than 20 years and currently provides consulting services to fabricators, erectors, engineers and the AISC Steel Solutions Center. He is a member of both the AISC Specification and Manuals Committees and a member of the SEI Committee on the Design of Steel Building Structures.
Presented annually by AISC, the Higgins 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 cash prize, will be presented at the 2014 NASCC: The Steel Conference in Toronto, March 26-28.
