Tadros Named ACI Fellow
This year 30 individuals were elevated to the grade of Fellow of the American Concrete Institute.One of these individuals was Dr. Maher Tadros, past president of the Nebraska Chapter and current Cheryl W. Prewett Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Nebraska in Omaha.
Dr. Tadros is a founding Partner and Structural Engineer, Tadros Associates LLC in Omaha, Nebraska.
An ACI member, he is a member of ACI Committees 318-G, Precast and Prestressed Concrete; 546, Repair of Concrete; and Joint ACI-ASCE Committees 343, Concrete Bridge Design; and 423, Prestressed Concrete.He is a founding member of ACI's Nebraska Chapter and served as President in 1990-91.
In 2002, he, and a doctoral student, received the T. Y. Lin Award from the ASCE for writing the best design paper in the field of Prestressed Concrete.This is the fourth time he has won this prestigious award.He won in 1976,1990 and 1997 for most meritorious article.In 2001,he received the ACI Structural Engineering Award and in 1998 he was presented the ACI Nebraska Chapter's Tom Reading Achievement Award.Other awards include the NSPE Award from the Nebraska Society of Professional Engineers-Eastern Chapter; the ACEC Grand Award (1997); PCI's Most Meritorious Committee Report Award (1988 and 1995); the Martin P. Korn Award (1989 and 1996); the Distinguished Educator Award(1995); and the Award for Distinguished Teaching, University of Nebraska.

The 2002 T.Y. Lin Award was presented to Panya Noppakunwijai, Maher Tadros, Zhongguo Ma, and Robert Mast for their paper "Strength Design of Pretensioned Flexural Concrete Members at Prestress Transfer," published in the January/February 2001 issue of the PCI Journal.
Tadros is the Cheryl Prewett Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Nebraska.Ma is an assistant professor at the University of Alaska, and Mast is a senior principal for BERGER/ABAM Engineers, Inc., of Federal Way, Washington.The T.Y. Lin Award is presented annually to recognize and encourage the submission of important papers in the field of prestressed concrete.
The standardization of higher strength ..., 10 Jan 2012 [cached]
The standardization of higher strength concrete (> 8,000 psi) and 0.6-in. diameter prestressing strand, plus state DOTs' use of more efficient girder cross sections than those of legacy AASHTO designs, have contributed to engineers' ability to stretch out single-beam spans, according to Dr. Maher Tadros. As Department of Civil Engineering professor, he pioneered the University of Nebraska's "NU" bulb tee girder on which much of the new generation of long-span (> 170 ft.) beams is based.
"The myth of going to steel specs if you need a shallower depth or longer spanning girder doesn't hold anymore. If an agency needs a bridge of a given span and width, I can design it with concrete girders of the same or shallower profile than steel girders. I couldn't make that statement 20 years ago," affirms Dr. Tadros, now principal of e.construct.USA LLC, Omaha-based structural engineer, and University of Nebraska professor emeritus.
.: WWR in Residential Construction :., 20 April 2001 [cached]
"The fact is you can use WWR anywhere you use regular rebar," says Dr. Maher Tadros, a professor at the University of Nebraska and principal of Tadros Associates of Omaha.
Professor Tadros is so convinced of WWR's superiority in concrete reinforcement, that he has undertaken a project in Omaha that has him building a concrete home unlike any other using only WWR as reinforcement. Almost the entire home will be made up of WWR reinforced concrete panels from the floors to the walls to even the roof. The project is being developed with the participation of four groups: The University of Nebraska, Enterprise Precast of Omaha, homebuilder TFF Inc of Omaha, and Dr. Tadros himself.
"This project will really show off how WWR can be used in residential home construction. I'm hoping that other builders will be able to use it as an example of how they can improve their building projects," says Professor Tadros. "The house will be a raised ranch style home, built with precast walls. The envelope will be concrete, including the roof and the floor. The basement and foundation will also be concrete. All of the reinforcement will be WWR."
Professor Tadros says he is hoping that this home project will dispel some of the misinformation about WWR and convince engineers and architects of its viability.
"Whenever I'm speaking to someone in my area about the benefits of WWR, I invite them to one of our local precast producers so they can see how WWR is used in bridge girders," says Professor Tadros. "Some of the girders can be two meters or 6 foot-7 inches tall, and WWR appears not only in a grid pattern in the flanges, but also as vertical shear reinforcement at even spacing in the stem. WWR simply offers much more placement accuracy and structural efficiency than rebar. As a significant bonus for the precast concrete producer, labor to fabricate these large girders has been cut by 30 to 40 percent. It's always surprising to see the reactions because despite WWR being over 100 years old, people are shocked to find that WWR can be used for applications other than concrete driveways."
"When constructing a home that has concrete in either the walls, driveways or foundations, the most effective reinforcement is welded wire," says Dr. Tadros.
