Professor Greg Deierlein has been honored with the 2018 Hardesty Award by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The ASCE Shortridge Hardesty Award recognizes an individual "who has contributed substantially in applying fundamental results of research to the solution of practical engineering problems in the field of structural stability”. 

This award was instituted in 1987 by the firm of Hardesty & Hanover to honor the contributions of Shortridge Hardesty as first chair of the Column Research Council (Structural Stability Research Council since 1976). The CRC was organized under the Engineering Foundation in 1944 at the recommendation of the ASCE Committee on Design of Structural Members and with the approval of the Structural Engineering Institute Executive Committee.
