The American Society of Civil Engineers, ASCE, announced on July 24 the Thermal Integrity Profiler (TIP) as the 2015 winner of the Charles Pankow Award for Innovation.  This Award celebrates collaboration in innovative design, materials, or construction-related research and development transferred into practice in a sustainable manner.  The Award also rewards innovative approaches that help achieve at least one of the National Construction Technology Goals.   The Award will be presented in March of 2015.

The innovative TIP, which uses the heat generated during cement curing to assess the shape and integrity of concrete foundations, was recognized by ASCE in part due to the collaborative efforts that were key to its development.

“The thermal integrity profiling technology was developed initially at the University of South Florida (USF) where it evolved throughout three Florida Department of Transportation funded research project”, said Gray Mullins, PhD, PE, the USF Professor who led the research team.

A fourth study was performed in cooperation with Washington State Department of Transportation. A joint effort was then undertaken by Foundation & Geotechnical Engineering, LLC (FGE), using the USF-licensed technology, and Pile Dynamics, Inc. (PDI).  The 2 firms transformed the thermal integrity profiling technology into the Thermal Integrity Profiler.
