Mircea Grigoriu Awarded ASCE Nathan M. Newmark Medal
Professor Mircea Grigoriu of Civil and Environmental Engineering has been selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers as the recipient of the 2016 Nathan M. Newmark Medal for original theoretical contributions to uncertainty quantification and their applications to earthquake/wind engineering and material science.
This award was established in 1975 by the Engineering Mechanics and Structural Institutes to honor Nathan M. Newmark, Hon.M.ASCE, for his outstanding contributions in structural engineering and mechanics. The ASCE committee has recognized that Grigoriu’s work “follows in the footsteps of Newmark.” Grigoriu will be officially presented with the medal during the Engineering Mechanics Institute conference, held this year in Nashville, Tennessee, on May 22-25.
