Assistant Professor Ryan Sherman was recognized as one of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) 13 award recipients for 2022. AISC President Charles J. Carter says the awards program “honors individuals who have made a difference in the success of the fabricated structural steel industry.”
Sherman will be recognized in NASCC: The Steel Conference in Denver this March for the Terry Peshia Early Career Faculty Award, which provides recognition to individuals who are on a tenure track or have received tenure with the last three years and who demonstrate promise in the areas of structural steel research, teaching, and/or other contributions to the structural steel industry.
An assistant professor at Georgia Tech since 2019, Sherman has a range of steel building, bridge, and ancillary highway structure research experience, including large-scale structural testing, field monitoring, material characterization, and FEA simulation. His recent research explores the areas of metallic additive manufacturing, high-toughness steel fracture performance, and stability limit states of built-up I-section members. Impacts of his work on the steel industry offer the potential to optimize structural performance, integrate design and inspection strategies, and streamline design processes, resulting in more efficient steel structures.
