Civil engineering professor Jimmy Kim has received the 2019 American Concrete Institute’s Chester Paul Siess Award for Excellence in Structural Research specifically “for the behavior of reinforced concrete beams strengthened with carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets subjected to relaxation induced by simultaneous thermal and mechanical loadings”, as co-author of the paper titled “Thermomechanical Relaxation of CFRP Sheets Bonded to a Concrete Substrate.”
Kim’s award will be mentioned at the ACI Spring 2019 Concrete Convention and Exposition during the Opening Session and Keynote Presentation, Sunday, March 24, 2019, in Québec City, Canada.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
