Hello Everyone,

Another exciting month for the Arizona Section of ASCE! One of our members, Randy D. Randolph, was selected by the Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute of ASCE to receive the 2018 Stephen D. Bechtel Pipeline Engineering Award. The following is an excerpt from the award letter sent to Randy from ASCE Executive Director Tom Smith:

“For leadership and service to the profession, particularly
for significant contributions in analyzing failure modes
and extents in prestressed concrete pipe. Your leadership
has advanced the practices in monitoring and repairing these pipes and has mentored future engineers.”

The award is given at the Society level and consists of a plaque and cash prize that will be presented during the Pipelines 2018 Conference in Toronto, Canada on July 17, 2018. However, the Phoenix Branch plans on acknowledging Randy’s achievement during their next luncheon on April 11, 2018. If you have the opportunity please attend and congratulate Mr. Randolph and if you are unable to attend, please join me in congratulating Mr. Randolph on his achievement!
