Novel approach to road surface testing earns civil engineering team ASNT top paper award

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) receives hundreds of paper submissions each year, and publishes those surviving a rigorous peer-review process in its journals. Out of those hundreds of submissions, only one can be crowned ASNT’s Outstanding Paper in Materials Evaluation each year, and a University of Missouri College of Engineering professor was part of the award-winning team for 2016.

The ASNT honored Bill Buttlar, the Barton Chair of Flexible Pavement Technology in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, and three colleagues from his former home at the University of Illinois — Megan McGovern, Nicholas Farace and Henrique Reis — for their work, receiving a plaque, medal and official recognition at the organization’s national conference.
