The Steel Bridge Task Force Oversight Council of the American Iron and Steel Institute, the National Steel Bridge Alliance, and the T-14 Technical Committee of the American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials present the award jointly.

Instituted in 2005 in memory of Robert J. Dexter – an associate professor of civil engineering at the University of Minnesota and an internationally recognized bridge expert – the program provides an opportunity to present a lecture on their steel bridge research activities to the Steel Bridge Task Force and to participate in its semiannual three-day meeting. Recipients become invited guests of the Steel Bridge Task Force, which is comprised of leading steel bridge experts.

Professor Yarnold will present a lecture on his research findings at the next meeting of the Steel Bridge Task Force on August 12, 2021, in Philadelphia, PA.
