Sikandar Sajid, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Sikandar Sajid, Ph.D. candidate from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, is the winner of the 2021 James Instruments Student Award for Research on Nondestructive Testing of Concrete. The competition is sponsored by James Instruments, Inc., a Chicago-based manufacturer and distributor of NDT systems and administered by ACI Committee 228 Nondestructive Testing.
Sikandar received a $1,500 cash prize for his research paper titled, “Improved Defect Detection with Impulse-response Test” and was invited to present the findings to ACI Committee 228 and at the Research in Progress session held during the ACI Concrete Convention on March 27 – 31, 2022 in Orland, FL, USA.
The purpose of this competition is to stimulate student interest in the area of NDT; to recognize meritorious and innovative research in concrete and concrete materials using NDT methods; to publicize the field of NDT and the work of the committee; and to recognize the support given by the sponsor to students working on NDT research.
The call for papers for the next competition will be published in the fall. Students can register to attend the upcoming convention for $20 USD. Those interested in attending remotely can register for the Virtual Technical Sessions for free.
