Dr. Angel L. Lazaro III is recognized for his significant contributions in the fields of structural and civil engineering. Dr. Lazaro conducted research on reinforced concrete at a time when analysis and design was based on keeping stresses small enough such that the material could be considered linearly elastic. He developed an analytical model which predicted the full-range behavior of reinforced concrete beams and frames incorporating concrete as a non-homogeneous, non-linear and inelastic material. Together with his theoretical work, his study showed the validity of very small-scale microconcrete models as an alternative to full-scale model tests. This contributed to the development of analysis and design methods based on member strength instead of allowable stresses, which are standard practice today.
