The ASCE Geo-Institute (G-I) has established a Lecture in recognition of Professor Carl L. Monismith's contribution to Pavement Engineering. Professor Monismith's teaching and research career in pavement technology at the University of California, Berkeley spans more than 50 years. Throughout this period he has mentored numerous graduate students who have disseminated advances in pavement technology around the world. 

About the Monismith Lecture

MonismithC_001The C. L. Monismith Lecture will be awarded annually for outstanding research contributions in Pavement Engineering. Nominations will be considered from any G-I or ASCE member or technical committee. The selection of the Lecturer will be made by the Awards Committee of the G-I and approved by the G-I Board of Governors. The Lecturer will be presented with a plaque and an honorarium, as allowed by the funds endowed for this purpose. The Lecturer will be encouraged to submit a paper accompanying his/her lecture, to be labeled accordingly.
