Civil engineering student given $20K for precast, pre-stressed concrete research

New Mexico State University (NMSU) civil engineering student Andrew Giesler’s tuition might be a little easier now with his $20,000 award from the Daniel P. Jenny Research Fellowship program.
The fellowship to further his research testing precast, pre-stressed concrete was awarded through the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute. It is effective in Spring 2013, when Giesler, currently a senior, begins his work as a graduate student.
Giesler and Brad Weldon, a civil engineering instructor, will conduct large-scale testing on beams made from ultra-high performance concrete, a mixture produced at NMSU, from local materials, according to an Oct. 1 report in the Las Cruces (New Mexico) Sun-News.
