Eric Steinberg, Ph.D., P.E.
Dr. Eric Steinberg is a Professor in Civil Engineering at Ohio University, Athens, OH. He joined the faculty at Ohio University in 1991 after completing his PhD at Michigan Technological University. Dr. Steinberg is the lead for his team on the Structures Research Services project, which is a new ODOT Research On Call (ROC) program. He is also currently involved with a FHWA Innovative Bridge Research and Deployment (IBRD) project with Fayette County involving the investigation of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) usage in the longitudinal joints of an adjacent prestressed concrete box beam bridge. Dr. Steinberg is also part of the team that is investigating the sign support inspection procedures that are currently being utilized by ODOT. His research has also involved the destructive testing of three spans of a full scale 43 year old prestressed concrete bridge. Dr. Steinberg’s general research interests include bridge engineering, prestressed concrete design, ultra-high performance concrete, and structural reliability. He is a member of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute’s Committee on Bridges, co-chair of the North American UHPC Working Group, and is a member of ACI 239 UHPC. Dr. Steinberg has published research findings in PCI’s Journal, ACI’s Structural Journal, ASCE’s Journal of Structural Engineering and Journal of Bridge Engineering, and the Journal of Structural Safety. Dr. Steinberg was awarded the PCI Distinguished Educator Award in 2006.
