Date:2020/11/6  View counts:143

Brief Introduction

Tung Chai (Bill) Ling is a Professor of Civil Engineering at Hunan University, China.  He has focused his academic career on the study of low-embodied-energy construction materials.  Key pillars of his research include: carbonation of waste and cement, treatment of waste, direct recycling of non-hazardous waste, and smart materials.  His research innovations have had a direct impact on the industrial application of sustainable construction materials.  Professor Ling is a Senior Member of RILEM and is an active member of several committees related to durability, supplementary cementing materials as well as valorization of waste (TC 258-AAA, TC 281-CCC, and TC 279-WMR).  Professor Ling’s remarkable leadership and research independence is evidenced by the productivity of his large research team as well as his significant international contributions.  He serves on many international scientific committees, and is a peer reviewer for many scholarly journals (including Materials and Structures).  He has also been the recipient of several prestigious awards.

Robert L'Hermite Medal

In 1967 when RILEM celebrated its 20th anniversary, it was decided to create a RILEM Medal which would be granted each year to a research scientist. As an example, and to mark the high level of merit which was required of the medal holders, the first RILEM Medal was bestowed upon Prof. Ferdinand Campus, one of the founders of RILEM.  In 1981, the Medal was renamed the Robert L’Hermite Medal, in honour of the President-Founder of RILEM.
Since then, each year, the Robert L’Hermite Medal is awarded to a researcher under 40 years of age, who has made an exceptional scientific contribution to the field of construction materials and structures.
