Otto Glogau, Chief Structural Engineer of the Ministry of Works, was a great thinker in the development of engineering concepts and design loadings for improving the structural performance of buildings to resist earthquake effects. Otto played a large part in the pioneering development of the 1976 Loadings Code.
This award is offered annually to the author or authors presenting the best paper during the three years ending 30 June preceding the date of the award. Those eligible are authors, whether members or non-members of the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering, of any paper published in the Bulletin of the NZSEE within the previous three years: also, authors of any paper published elsewhere within the previous three years, provided at least one is a member of the Society, and the paper is nominated in writing to the Management Committee by a member of the NZSEE at least one month prior to the date of the award being presented.
The criteria for selection of the Otto Glogau Award are merit and the degree to which the paper advances the objects of the Society. However, when papers of equal merit are being considered for the award, preference will be given to authors who have not yet received the award. In any year the presentation or not of an Award will be at the sole discretion of the NZSEE Management Committee.
Two years must pass from the date of the award before an author is again eligible to receive the award. (For multi-authored papers, the term “author” in this paragraph refers to all authors)
The award is in the form of a sum of money ($500.00) to purchase books, plus a certificate.
Nominations are now open. Nominations should include a copy of the paper (as published) and need to be in the hands of the NZSEE Executive Office by 27 March 2013.
The Award will be presented at the NZSEE annual Conference, at the Conference Dinner.
