Dr. John Myers, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, is gaining national attention for his work. He was recently appointed as a founding member of the American Concrete Institute’s (ACI) Concrete Innovation Council. The council was formed to strengthen the ACI Foundation’s approach to innovation in the concrete industry and better support ACI’s growing focus on innovation. In addition, Myers was appointed secretary for ACI’s Fiber Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement (FRP) Committee, ACI 440.
Myers was also named a founding member of a new Transportation Research Board (TRB). This group focuses on innovative applications of technology and materials in the design, rehabilitation and construction of bridges and ancillary transportation structures. TRB is one of seven program units of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
In October, Myers delivered a keynote presentation at the fifth International Conference on Transportation Infrastructure and Materials (TIM 2021). Over 1,000 people attended the online session.
