TTI Research Engineer Jean-Louis Briaud has been notified by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) of his selection for the 2007 Ralph B. Peck Award. The award ceremony will take place Feb. 19 at the National Congress of the Geo-Institute in Denver.
In a letter notifying Briaud of the award, the Executive Director of ASCE, Patrick Natale told him “the selection committee particularly noted your development of a new method for prediction of bridge scour depth which was applied to the design of the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge.”
In addition, Briaud received the Martin Knapp Lecture Award after his presentation to the ASCE in New York City on Dec. 14. The lecture included details of three major research projects over the last 15 years that led to advances in foundation engineering.
