This edition of the Student Research Accomplishments is the fourth in a series featuring the work of MCEER students on topics ranging from traditional civil and lifeline engineering to applications of advanced technologies, to social impacts and economic modeling.
All papers included in this volume were entered into MCEER’s Best Student Article Competition. Members of MCEER’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB) judged the 11 submissions, and selected a winner and two honorable mentions. The winner of this year’s competition is outgoing SLC President Jeffrey Berman, University of Buffalo, and honorable mentions were awarded to Anita Jacobson, Cornell University and Michael Astrella, University of Buffalo, for their outstanding efforts. All three students were invited to present their research at the 2005 MCEER Annual Meeting.
