Bowen Laboratory awarded Charles S. Whitney Medal
The Bowen Laboratory has been selected to receive the Charles S. Whitney Medal by the American Concrete Institute (ACI). This honor was bestowed by the ACI Board of Direction specifically "In recognition for its large-scale civil engineering research in systems, materials and technologies, and for its long time and consistent contribution to the economy and safety of buildings and infrastructure."
The Charles S. Whitney Medal for engineering development was founded in 1961 by Ammann and Whitney, to honor the memory of Charles S. Whitney. It may be bestowed once in any year, but not necessarily each year, for noteworthy engineering development work in concrete design or construction. The recognition may be extended to a firm or agency alone, or to an individual.
Any outstanding engineering development work contributing importantly to the advancement of the sciences or arts of concrete design or construction through development of general engineering practice or through application in specific noteworthy projects, is eligible.
