CENTIRE STUDENT EMILIO JIMENEZ RECEIVES ASME AWARD

Emilio Jimenez, a PhD student working in the project “Tire-ice model validation and comparative analysis of tractive performance of tires on ice”, has been awarded the 2017 ASME/Virginia Tech Memorial Scholarship.  This scholarship has been instituted by ASME to commemorate the victims of the April 16, 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech. Every year they recognize one graduate student from Virginia Tech's College of Engineering, who must be ASME member, have ASME activity, and, of course, other meaningful accomplishments.  Congratulations to Emilio on receiving this well-deserved recognition and award.
