Armin Stuedlein, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, a professor of geotechnical engineering at Oregon State University, has been named a fellow by the ASCE Board of Direction.

Stuedlein serves as an active consultant for major civil infrastructure projects. His primary research interests center on the characterization and full-scale performance of soil deposits and infrastructure subject to soil-structure interaction, including earthquake-induced liquefaction and cyclic softening, foundations, and ground improvements. His research has been published in more than 150 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, is widely used in geotechnical practice, and is being adopted in design codes. 

He is editor of the ASCE Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering and the Journal of the Deep Foundations Institute, and serves on the editorial boards of the Canadian Geotechnical Journal and Georisk. Stuedlein is vice chair of the ASCE Geo-Institute Committee on Soil Improvement and will serve as chair beginning in 2024. 

He has received ASCE’s J. James R. Croes Medal (2023) and Associate Editor of the Year (2015), and has been recognized by the Canadian Geotechnical Society with the Fredlund Award (2023) and by ASTM International with the Award for Outstanding Article on the Practice of Geotechnical Testing (2017).
