Dr. Billie F. Spencer, Jr., President of the United States-China Earthquake Engineering Foundation and Professor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), has been selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to receive the 2018 Nathan M. Newmark Medal “For pioneering work, innovations, and leadership in the theory and application of advanced technologies to fundamental problems in structural engineering and mechanics, as well as for his unwavering commitment to education/mentoring of students and professional service.” Prof. Spencer is also the Honorary Director of the Huixian Earthquake Engineering Foundation and the Managing Executive Editor of the journal of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration published by the Institute of Engineering Mechanics, China Earthquake Administration.
The Newmark Medal was established in 1975 by ASCE’s Engineering Mechanics and Structural Institutes to honor Nathan M. Newmark for his exemplary contributions in structural engineering and mechanics. The award is made to an ASCE member who, through outstanding contributions in structural mechanics, has helped substantially to strengthen the scientific base of structural engineering. The award consists of a gold medal and a certificate. Since its establishment, 43 scholars have been awarded the prize, including 40 American winners, 1 British winner, 1 Austrian winner, and 1 Chinese winner (Dr. Xilin LU, Professor of Tongji University and Director of the Huixian Earthquake Engineering Foundation).
