ARTS research group is proud to acknowledge one of our group members (Md Abdul Hamid Mirdad) has won the award of 2019 Catherine Lalonde Memorial Scholarship. Md Abdul is a 3rd year PhD candidate in Civil Engineering at University of Alberta. His thesis examines the structural performance of Mass Timber Panel-Concrete (MTPC) Composite Floor System with an insulation layer and inclined Self-Tapping Screws, at both 30° and 45°, to facilitate a partial shear transfer and composite action between the components. And this is the second time that student from ARTS research group wins this prize. Congratulations Abdul!
