Michael Pollino recognized by American Society of Civil Engineers
Michael Pollino, associate professor of civil engineering, has been named a recipient of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Moisseiff Award for 2019. The award was established by the society in 1947 in recognition of the accomplishments of Leon S. Moisseiff, a notable contributor to the science and art of structural design.
The prize is given to an important paper published in an ASCE journal dealing with the field of structural design, including applied mechanics as well as the theoretical analysis, or constructive improvement, of engineering structures such as bridges and frames, of any structural material. Pollino’s paper, which was published in the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering and based on collaborative research with colleagues from UC San Diego and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, is titled “Seismic Rehabilitation of Concentrically Braced Frames Using Stiff Rocking Cores." The paper was also co-authored by Pollino's PhD student Derek Slovenec.
