Mizzou Engineering duo presents at national ASEE conference
Alaaeldin Elsisi and Hesham El-Emam participated in the GEM-ASEE Doctoral Engineering Research Showcase, hosted by the American Society for Engineering Education, on Jan. 22 and 23 in Washington, D.C.
The Showcase is a unique event which invites “doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and new faculty to display their leading-edge technical research and connect with potential agency sponsors and academic employers. They will present their research – which may be either interdisciplinary or a single engineering and computing discipline – in poster format.”
The duo was selected out of a competitive field to present. El-Emam’s poster was titled “Fatigue crack strengthening using pre-stressed composite patch,” and Elsisi presented “Blast mitigation of concrete walls using sheet retrofit systems.”
Elsisi is a postdoctoral fellow and El-Emam a Ph.D. candidate in the lab of Hani Salim, associate dean of Academic Programs and Student Affairs in the College of Engineering and a C.W. LaPierre Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.
