2010 ASCE Associate Editor Award

The Associate Editor Award recognizes associate editors who have provided consistent and exemplary service to a particular journal or practice periodical or who have made a substantial unique contribution to the enhancement of ASCE’s publication activities

.

George Z. Voyiadjis

George Z.

Voyiadjis

, D.Eng., F.ASCE, Louisiana State University,is presented with ASCE’s Associate Editor Award. His research focuses on the damage mechanics of metals, metal matrix composites, and ceramics, with emphasis on theoretical modeling, numerical simulation of material behavior, and experimental correlations. Voyiadjis has more than 220 peer-reviewed journal articles and 17 books to his credit. He served as an associate editor of ASCE’s Journal of Engineering Mechanics from 1997 to 1999 and has been serving in that capacity since 2005.
