Civil Engineers Awarded Best Paper

March 14, 2011

Dean Rob Ettema and coauthors (Dr. Gokhan Kirkil and Dr. George Constantinescu) were selected for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ 2011 Karl Emil Hilgard Award for best paper in civil engineering hydraulics. The award is given for their journal paper titled "Detached Eddy Simulation Investigation of Turbulence at a Circular Pier with Scour Hole," published in ASCE’s Journal of Hydraulic Engineering. Dean Ettema and coauthors will be formally recognized for the award at ASCE’s World Environmental and Water Resources Congress on May 22-26 in Palm Springs, California.

"In selecting the paper for this award, the committee particularly recognized its contribution to hydraulic engineering," said Patrick J. Natale, Executive Director of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The paper uses a numerical technique, Detached Eddy Simulation, and laboratory experiments to illuminate flow-field turbulence and foundation erosion at bridge piers in river channels.
