Time to celebrate and honor achievement

09 October, 2016

​​Professor Carlos Santamarina, was recently awarded the Hogentogler Award by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM). The award is presented annually by the ASTM Committee D18 on Soil and Rock to authors of an ASTM paper of outstanding merit on soil or rock testing.  It recognizes meritorious effort and is the most prestigious technical award given by the committee. 


The Hogentogler award is presented to Santamarina, along with co-authors G. Viggiana, E. Ando and  D. Takano, for their paper, "Laboratory X-Ray Tomography: A Valuable Experimental Tool for Revealing Processes in Soils," published in the January 2015 edition of the ASTM Geotechnical Testing Journal.

Our group took some time out of our weekly meeting to celebrate together the privilege of working in this field and the satisfaction that comes along with achievement.
