W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - T. Russell Gentry, Ph.D., an associate professor in the school of architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Ga., has received the 2011 President's Leadership Award from ASTM International.

Established in 2007, the President's Leadership Award recognizes individuals early in their ASTM career who have significantly advanced the Society's mission through extraordinary accomplishment, example and vision. Nicholas Lang, manager of the research and development laboratory at the National Concrete Masonry Association in Herndon, Va., was also honored this year.

A member of ASTM International since 2005, Gentry serves on ASTM Committees D20 on Plastics and D30 on Composite Materials, and he is vice chairman of Subcommittee D30.05 on Structural Test Methods. He has made several contributions to the development of standard test methods for composite materials used in civil infrastructure applications and the coordination of these and other D30 activities with the American Concrete Institute. Committee D30 recognized him with an Award of Appreciation in 2007 and a Certificate of Appreciation in 2008.

Gentry, whose research is focused on structural engineering, infrastructure materials science and building physics, became an assistant professor at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., after receiving his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Michigan in 1992. He joined the faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he had earned a B.S. and an M.S. in civil engineering, as an associate professor in 2000. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Federal Highway Administration, the National Concrete Masonry Association and the American Institute of Architects.

Outside ASTM International, Gentry is active with American Concrete Institute, the Transportation Research Board and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
