The American Society of Civil Engineers selected Carl A. Strock, P.E., a project director with Bechtel Corp. and former chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to receive the Henry L. Michel Award for Industry Advancement of Research.
The award, which recognizes an individual in the design and construction industry who has helped to increase industry participation in research and in efforts to bring innovations into practice, will be presented on April 30 during the group's annual awards gala in Arlington, Va.

He earned bachelor's and master's degrees in civil engineering from the Virginia Military Institute and Mississippi State University, respectively.
