Jan. 12, 2017

The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) has selected Assistant Professor Patricia Clayton to receive the Early Career Faculty Award.

The award recognizes individuals who demonstrate promise in the areas of structural steel research, teaching and other contributions to the structural steel industry.

The AISC is a not-for-profit technical institute and trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the U.S.

Clayton’s research is focused on improving seismic performance of steel structures during earthquakes. This includes studies on retrofit of existing structures that do not meet today’s seismic standards and development of structural systems to have limited damage.

She will receive the award at NASCC: The Steel Conference in San Antonio, Texas in March 2017.
