ASCE names Edil a distinguished member

The American Society of Civil Engineers has named Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Emeritus Tuncer B. Edil a distinguished member. In honoring Edil, ASCE noted his contributions to geotechnical engineering, including his leading research in such subject matter of peats, organic soils and soft-ground engineering. Edil joined the UW-Madison faculty in 1980 and served as chair of the Geological Engineering Program from 2002 to 2007 and again from 2008 to 2009.
