ACI Foundation Establishes Memorial Scholarship to Honor Bernard Erlin

ACI Bernard Erlin
Bernard Erlin organized, chaired, or co-chaired many ACI sessions, and authored or co-authored over 120 papers dealing with petrographic examinations and other aspects of construction materials.

A generous donor made it possible for the ACI Foundation to establish the Bernard Erlin Memorial Scholarship in memory of ACI Honorary Member Bernard Erlin who passed away on February 1, 2022, in Ocala, Florida, after a short illness. The scholarship was established to honor Erlin’s many contributions to the concrete industry and ACI.

Honoring his legacy

He served as Chair of ACI Committee 116, Terminology and Notation, and was a member of ACI Committees 201, Durability of Concrete; 222, Corrosion of Metals in Concrete; and 362, Parking Structures. In 2018, he was recognized as a 50-year member of ACI. During the ACI Concrete Convention – Fall 2012 in Toronto, Ontario, Erlin gave the Katharine and Bryant Mather Lecture, in which he talked about Bryant’s interest in lepidopterology and told a story about collecting moths and butterflies with him.

Erlin organized, chaired, or co-chaired many ACI sessions, and authored or co-authored over 120 papers dealing with petrographic examinations and other aspects of construction materials. He was a co-editor of several books that are compilations of papers from ACI.

In 2003, he received the ACI Pittsburgh Chapter Tink Bryan Award for exemplary contributions to the industry. Erlin was bestowed honorary membership at the ACI Concrete Convention – Spring 2007 in Atlanta, Georgia, “For his contributions to ACI and the concrete industry; his pioneering work in the development and application of petrography for the characterization of concrete.”
