Foundation selects research fellows

The Portland Cement Association Education Foundation awarded three graduate students with educational fellowships at the association’s recent fall meeting in Chicago.

The 2009 recipients are Charles Hope, with research titled “Full-Depth Reclamation Using Cement Slurry and Microcracking,” from Brigham Young University; Steven Barbachyn, with research titled “Nominal Shear Strength Limits for Short Diagonally-Reinforced Coupling Beams,” from the University of Notre Dame; and Sean Haymans, with research titled “Durability of Concrete Exposed to Potassium Acetate,” from the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton.

The PCA Education Foundation Research Fellowship identifies and rewards outstanding graduate students in the fields of engineering and physical sciences who are studying areas that advance the science and technology of cement and concrete. PCA’s Education Foundation presents the students with $20,000 each for university and study costs.
