ACPA presented the 2018 Marlin J. Knutson Award for Technical Achievement to Jason Weiss, Ph.D., P.E., Head of the School of Civil and Construction Engineering at Oregon State University.

Weiss was recognized for fundamental advancement of concrete pavement durability through applied research, including application of the ring and dual-ring tests; resistivity test, and most notably the “formation factor.”

Some of his notable technical achievements are important components of the “Performance Engineered Mixtures” program, and are enabling the FHWA, state DOTs, and industry to work collaboratively to develop the next generation specification for concrete pavement quality assurance.
