UTA College of Engineering Assistant Professor Shih-Ho Chao was awarded the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Milek Fellowship for his research on "Quantification of Seismic Performance Factors for Steel Staggered Truss and Eccentrically Braced Framing Systems".
The AISC Milek Faculty Fellowship is awarded to talented faculty to encourage innovation in structural steel design and construction. This award was named after William A. Milek, former AISC Vice President of Engineering and Research, to recognize his invaluable contributions to AISC and the structural steel industry as a whole.
The Milek Fellowship is a four-year, $30,000 per year award and is designed to contribute to the research careers of beginning faculty who teach and conduct research investigations related to structural steel while producing research results beneficial to designers, fabricators, and erectors of structural steel.
