BYU graduate student strikes "gold" in cement research

The Portland Cement Association Education Foundation has awarded Brigham Young University graduate student Ben Reese with one of eight educational research fellowships worth $20,000 each for university study costs.

The foundation identifies and rewards outstanding graduate students in the fields of engineering and physical sciences who study areas that advance the science and technology of cement and concrete. Reese was recognized for his research, “Use of the Heavy Clegg Impact Soil Tester to Assess Rutting of Cement-Treated Base Material under Early Trafficking.”

Based in Skokie, Ill., the Portland Cement Association represents cement companies in the United States and Canada. It conducts market development, engineering, research, education, and public affairs programs.
