The 2010 Martin S. Kapp Foundation Engineering Award
is presented to Dov Leshchinsky, Ph.D., M.ASCE
for his innovative contribution to the unified method of design and analysis of earth retaining structures and slopes as well as the implementation of such technology through computer software and continuing education. Professor Leshchinsky is a highly recognized professor and researcher in geotechnical engineering, with a focus in the fields of earth retaining structures and slope engineering. His computer codes for the design of mechanically stabilized earth walls and steep soil slopes is world renown. Professor Leshchinsky is also very actively involved in continuing education efforts in the field of geotechnical engineering and has taught countless short courses and seminars for both national and international agencies. In 1982, Professor Leshchinsky graduated with a PhD
degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Delaware.
