Xiong Zhang to receive international award for innovation in unsaturated soil mechanics
Congratulations, Dr. Zhang! The International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) will present Xiong Zhang with the “International Award for Innovation in Unsaturated Soil Mechanics” for his outstanding contributions to the development of a photogrammetry-based method to measure total and local volume changes of unsaturated soils during triaxial testing. Dr. Zhang is also working on a related CESTiCC sponsored project entitled Software Development for Soil Volume Measurement during Triaxle Testing.
Dr. Zhang will be presented the award at a ceremony at the European Conference on Unsaturated Soils (E-UNSAT) in September, 2016.
