Reese Research Prize Rules


Raymond C. Reese Research Prize

To recognize outstanding contributions to the application of structural engineering research, Raymond C. Reese, Hon.M.ASCE, contributed funds to support a structural engineering research prize. The prize was established by the Board of Direction in April, 1970.

I.    The Raymond C. Reese Research Prize is to be awarded to the author or authors of a paper published by the Society in the twelve-month period ending with June of the year preceding the year of the award that describes a notable achievement in research related to structural engineering and which indicates how the research can be used. The paper should include the results of research (experimental and/or analytical) and, in particular, should indicate and recommend how the research can be applied to design; it is this latter feature that is considered to be most important.

II.    Membership in the Society is not a requirement for consideration.

III.    The award may be presented annually.

IV.    No one shall be eligible to receive the Prize, or a portion of the Prize, more than once.

V.    The eligible papers will be reviewed by the Structural Engineering Institute which shall select the nominee or nominees for final approval by the ASCE Executive Committee.

VI.    The lead author shall receive a plaque. All other authors shall receive only a certificate.

To nominate, submit the following:

Electronic submissions are encouraged to by November 1. Paper submissions are also accepted, in which case one copy of the complete nomination package should be received by the Honors and Awards Program at the ASCE headquarters: 1801 Alexander Bell Drive, Reston, VA 20191-4400.
