Professor Sasanakul Honored with Hogentogler Award

The Hogentogler Award is presented to the author(s) of an ASTM paper of outstanding merit on soil or rock. It recognizes meritorious effort and it is the most prestigious technical award given by Committee D18.

The award is based on the paper, “Calibration of Equipment Damping in a Resonant Column and Torsional Shear Testing Device”, appearing in the September 2010 edition of the ASTM Geotechnical Testing Journal.

The award will be presented shortly after 8:00 a.m. on Monday, June 25, 2012 at the Main Meeting of Committee D18 in San Diego, California. I encourage you to attend this meeting and receive your award plaque in person. Please let me know if this will be possible. We are planning to publicize your receipt of this award, so would you please send me your biographical data as soon as possible. Also if you wish to have me notify your supervisors of this award, please provide me with their names and addresses. I would be pleased to send them a letter announcing the award.
