Ph.D. candidate Alireza Farhidzadeh received the 2012 Student Award from the Acoustic Emission Working Group (AEWG) for his paper, “Introducing Sifted b-Value Analysis and a New Crack Classification for Monitoring Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls by Acoustic Emission.” He is studying for his Ph.D. in civil engineering under the supervision of Dr. Salvatore Salamone in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering (CSEE) at the University at Buffalo. His primary research interests include structural health monitoring (SHM) of complex structures using acoustic emission (AE) techniques.
He received the award at the 54th AEWG meeting, held in Princeton, New Jersey, on May 21-22, 2012. Award winners receive a $300 cash prize and free conference registration.
