Sir Arnold Waters Medal
The Sir Arnold Waters Medal is an annual prize which recognises the best presentations to have won a Regional Group award.
Sir Arnold Waters was twice President of the Institution and a holder of the Victoria Cross, which he won for his bravery constructing a bridge under fire during World War One.
Entries are now open to award-winning presentations given during 2017. Presentations should be submitted to the Panel Secretary by a Regional Group representative no later than 28 February 2018.
The Judging Panel considers:
- Value to the profession as a contribution to the art and science of structural engineering
- Clarity and presentation
- Extent of the author’s responsibility for the work described
- All presentation authors must be members of the Institution, of any grade.
- The presentation must be submitted by a Regional Group representative.
- The submission may take the form of a written paper or electronic presentation.
Further information can be found in 'Guidance for Regional Groups'.
In 2017 the Sir Arnold Waters Medal was awared to Martin Paul Ashmead, for his paper ‘Building Collapses & Dangerous Structures’
and to William John Harvey for his paper ‘They said it couldn’t be done: Elevarch’.
