Awards and Recognition.
Berkeley Engineering And Research is proud to stay up to date and actively involved in industry. In addition to patents, our engineers are encouraged to continue researching and publishing new work. BEAR Research Papers are published occasionally and result directly from our work. These papers are thoroughly researched and based on scientific literature review. Additionally, our research has been peer reviewed and in many instances has been used to shape public policy.
Journal of Failure Analysis and Prevention
The Best Paper of the Year was awarded to a team at BEAR in 2011 (Volume 11) by the Journal of Failure Analysis and Prevention. Dr. Glen Stevick, Dr. Joseph B. Zicherman, Dr. David Rondinone, and Dr. Allan Sagle wrote the award-winning piece, "Failure Analysis and Prevention of Fires and Explosions with Plastic Gasoline Containers." The Award was formally presented at the ASM Leadership Awards Luncheon held in Pittsburgh, Pa. on October 8, 2012.
American Society of Civil Engineers
The American Society of Civil Engineers awarded the Golden Gate Bridge Seismic Retrofit Project the Outstanding Civil engineering Achievement Award for 2007. BEAR founder and CEO, Dr. Glen Stevick and his longstanding colleague, Dr. Weili Cheng, designed the seismic dampers for this historic project and determined the seismic energy for the retrofit of this majestic bridge. Congratulations!
