- Karl H. Frank, Ph.D., P.E., Hirschfeld Industries
Karl Frank is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost authorities on the design and behavior of structural steel bridges. Throughout his career as a researcher, Professor of Civil Engineering and Director of Ferguson Structural Engineering Lab at the University of Texas at Austin, he has made extraordinary contributions to improving the understanding of the fatigue and fracture behavior of structural steel as well as towards the design and behavior of bolted and welded connections. And while he is widely recognized for his expertise in steel bridge systems, he is also well known for his contributions to the building industry.
Dr. Frank has been a long time and consistent contributor to AISC programs. For decades, he has worked with AISC and the National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA) on the development of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) specifications related to the design of structural steel bridges. He is a member of the Research Council on Structural Connections, has been an Engineering Journal reviewer, a continuing education speaker, and is currently a member of the Partners in Education committee. In 2011, Dr. Frank was awarded an AISC Lifetime Achievement Award in honor of his outstanding service over many years to AISC and to the structural steel design/construction/academic community.
