June 6, 2019

Prof. Eric Steinberg presented Ph.D. candidate Yi Shao with the First Place Paper Award on Tuesday, June 4 at the Awards Gala of Second International Interactive Symposium on UHPC at Albany, NY for his paper, ‘Utilizing Full UHPC Compressive Strength in Steel Reinforced UHPC Beams’.

The symposium committee selected three best papers out of 112 peer-reviewed papers, and Yi’s paper ranks 1st among these three best papers. Yi’s paper improves the understanding of flexural failure mechanism of steel reinforced UHPC beams and proposes an innovative method for predicting the flexural failure path and flexural strength.
