Richard R. Torrens Award
Richard R. Torrens served ASCE for 17 years in the Publications Department Headquarters, and was Manager of Professional and Technical Publications at his untimely death in 1984. The high quality of ASCE's Journals is in no small measure a result of his dedication and his support of the volunteer Journal editors.
As a reflection of his distinguished service, the Richard R. Torrens Award will honor volunteer Journal editors who make outstanding contributions to the ASCE publications program.
The award is made by the ASCE Board Committee on Publications to a Journal editor whose contributions are considered outstanding. No more than one award will be made in a single year, and it is not required that an award be made every year.
The award consists of an appropriate certificate. Click here for the nomination form and guidelines.
