ASCE honored M. Ataur Rahman, Ph.D., P.E., and Sri Sritharan, Ph.D., M.ASCE, with the 2016 T. Y. Lin Award for the paper, “Seismic Response of Precast, Posttensioned Concrete Jointed Wall Systems Design for Low- to Mid-Rise Buildings Using the Direct Displacement-Based Approach,” in the PCI Journal, March-April 2015.

Rahman and Sritharan’s paper received unanimous agreement from the selection committee for presenting research that opens up an entirely new domain for prestressed concrete in seismic structures. The authors presented an investigation of seismic performance of precast, posttensioned concrete jointed wall systems designed for five-, seven-, and 10-story buildings using the direct displacement approach.

The T. Y. Lin Award recognizes contributions to the field of prestressed concrete.
