Scott Brandenberg, Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has received the 2015 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize. The Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize, established in 1964, recognizes members of ASCE for notable achievement in research related to civil engineering. ASCE represents more than 146,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 174 countries. Founded in 1852, ASCE is the nation’s oldest engineering society. (http://www.asce.org).
The Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize identified Brandenberg as accomplishing significant research during the early stage of his career. Brandenberg was selected to receive this award for his outstanding research in geotechnical earthquake engineering with emphasis on the seismic response of levees, interaction between pile foundations and liquefiable soils, nonlinear site response analysis, and geophysical investigations.
