ACI/TUM

Award presented

On 15.07.2015, the American Concrete Institute (ACI) presented the A. Aignesberger Award to Professor Dr. Johann Plank, Technische Universität München (TUM), during the “11th International Conference on Superplasticizers and Other Chemical Admixtures in Concrete”, held in Ottawa/Canada. This distinction honours Prof. Dr. Plank for his outstanding contributions over many years to the Research & Development of plasticizers and other concrete admixtures.

The award bears the name of Dr. Alois Aignesberger who, in 1962, while working for the then SKW company in Trostberg/Germany, was the first to synthesise a concrete superplasticizer and to recognise its significance for modern concrete technology.
