The education and professional contributions of Richard W. Furlong are given in this paper as a part of the Richard W. Furlong Symposium on April 22,2002 at the ACI Convention in Detroit, Michigan. Highlights of Dr. Furlong’s career of teaching and research at The University of Texas at Austin are noted. The emphasis is on how, as an experienced designer, he was effective in transferring research results to practical design guidelines and building code provisions. The paper is meant to give personal recognition and express our appreciation for all the many contributions he has made to the American Concrete Institute for more than 40 years.
