Michael Angelo B. Promentilla
Field of award: Civil and Socio-Environmental Engineering
Year awarded: 2013
Division: Engineering Sciences
In recognition of his significant contributions in the fields of civil and environmental engineering. He developed methodologies using X-ray microtomography and employing mathematical models, coupled with three-dimensional image analysis to study the microstructure and transport properties of cementitious materials. His works on material characterization contributes to a better fundamental understanding of the microstructure-property relationship, which plays an important role in the evaluation and design of these civil engineering materials. He also developed methodologies employing multiple criteria decision analysis to address the inherent human subjectivity and complexity of decision structures in the evaluation of environmental and energy systems. His works on decision analysis have beenapplied, for example, to evaluate contaminated site remediation options, to rank low-carbon energy technologies, and to measure climate change vulnerability, among others.
