Zahra (Ellie) Kohankar Kouchesfehani is a Ph.D. Student and Graduate Research and Teaching Assistant at the Center for Underground Infrastructure Research and Education (CUIRE) in the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington. She is a NASTT Student Chapter Member and a valuable volunteer at our annual No-Dig Show.

We are excited that Zahra’s submission, “Structural Design Methodology for Spray Applied Pipe Liners in Gravity Storm Water Conveyance Conduits as a Trenchless Renewal Application,” has been selected for an ISTT 2019 No Dig Award.

The selection team found the methodology to be a significant contribution to the trenchless world.

The award will be recognized at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on October 1, 2019 at the 37th International No Dig Conference in Florence, Italy.

Congratulations, Zahra!
