Fahnestock Receives AISC Special Achievement Award

Fourteen leaders from across the structural steel design, construction, and academic community will receive distinguished awards from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) at the 2016 NASCC: The Steel Conference (April 13-15 in Orlando). Prof. Fahnestock is being recognized for his work on the reserve capacity of low-ductility steel braced frames in areas of moderate seismicity, in which he quantifies the effects of reserve capacity in non-ductile frames, which may preclude the need for strict seismic retrofit requirements in moderate seismic regions.
