Dr. Barry J. Goodno is a Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. He joined the faculty at Georgia Tech in 1974 after completing his MSCE (1971) and Ph.D. (1974) in structural engineering at Stanford University. He did his undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, completing his BSCE in 1970. He is a registered P.E. in Georgia. Dr. Goodno's research interests include earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, mechanics of materials, hybrid control of structures, and influence of nonstructural components on building response. He normally teaches courses in statics and mechanics of materials at the undergraduate level, and structural dynamics at the graduate level. He is the co-author, with the late James M. Gere, of the text Mechanics of Materials. He has also published extensively in the areas of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics throughout his tenure at Georgia Tech. Goodno is a Fellow of ASCE (1999) and has held a variety of leadership positions within ASCE/SEI. He is a Past President of the ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Board of Governors (2005-2007). He is past-Chair of the ASCE-SEI Technical Activities Division (TAD) Executive Committee (1997-1998), and past-Chair of the ASCE-SEI Awards Committee (2000-2001). Dr. Goodno received the SEI Dennis L. Tewksbury Award in 2002 for outstanding service to ASCE-SEI. In 2009, he served as Conference Chair for the ATC/SEI Joint Conference on Assessment and Rehabilitation of Existing Structures, held in San Francisco, CA, December 9-11, 2009. He was Chair of the Steering Committee for the 1994 Structures Congress held in Atlanta.
