headshot of Salvatore SalamoneThe Ferguson Laboratory welcomes Dr. Salvatore Salamone, a new Assistant Professor at UT and the laboratory. He comes from the University of Buffalo where he was an Assistant Professor. He received his masters and doctorate degree from the University of Palermo and did a post doctorate at The University of California- San Diego. His research is on structural health monitoring, non-destructive evaluation, resilience of structural systems subject to earthquakes, ultrasonic sensing methods for smart structures, wave propagation in solids, digital signal processing and pattern recognition, dynamics and vibrations of structural systems, and piezoelectric energy harvesting. He will occupy the SHM/NDE laboratory at FSEL. 

Dr. Oguzhan Bayrak presented at the 2015 Dallas Area Alumni Seminar. His presentation, titled ""Structural Engineering in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities" can be viewed here.

Oguzhan Bayrak received the Chester Paul Siess Award for Excellence in Structural Research for the paper he coauthored with Sungjin Bae, a former PhD student. The paper is titled "Examination of Stress Block Parameters for High-Strenth Concrete in the Context of ACI 318 Code".  This award is given to the author or authors of a peer-reviewed paper published by the Institute that describes a notable achievement in experimental or analytical research that advances the theory or practice of structural engineering and, most importantly, recommends how the research can be applied to design. The award was presented at the 2015 ACI Awards Program held in Kansas City, MO on April 12, 2015.

Professor Michael Engelhardt is a recipient of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Lifetime Achievement Award,presented at the spring 2015 NASCC Steel Conference.

Oguzhan Bayrak has been selected to receive the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Chester Paul Siess Award for Excellence in Structural Research.

The annual award honors a paper that describes a notable achievement in experimental or analytical research that advances the theory or practice of structural engineering and, most importantly, recommends how the research can be applied to design.
