Prof. James K. Wight elected as Honorary member of ACI

James K. Wight, FACI, is Professor of civil engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, where he has taught since September 1973. He teaches undergraduate and graduate classes on structural analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures.

Wight has been an active member of ACI since 1973 and was named a Fellow of the Institute in 1984. He is a Past President of ACI and a past member of the ACI Board of Direction. He is past Chair of the ACI Technical Activities Committee; ACI Committee 318, Structural Concrete Building Code; ACI Subcommittee 318-E, Section and Member Strength; and Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 352, Joints and Connections in Monolithic Concrete Structures. He is Past President of the Greater Michigan Chapter – ACI.


He is well known for his work in earthquake-resistant design of concrete structures. His recent research has concentrated on the strength and inelastic behavior of connections in composite structures (reinforced concrete and steel) and the use of high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete composites for critical members or regions of concrete structures. He spent a 1-year sabbatical in Japan and was involved in the construction and simulated earthquake testing of a full-scale reinforced concrete building. He has been involved with post-earthquake damage studies following earthquakes in Mexico, Chile, Armenia, Egypt, California, Japan, and India.

At the University of Michigan, Wight has received numerous awards, including the ASCE Student Chapter Teacher of the Year Award (eight times), the College of Engineering’s Distinguished Service and Teaching Excellence Awards, the State of Michigan Award for Outstanding Teaching, and the Chi Epsilon-Great Lakes District Excellence in Teaching Award. He has also received the ACI Delmar Bloem Distinguished Service Award (1991), the ACI Joe Kelly Award (1999), the ACI Arthur J. Boase Award (2002), the Structural Research Award (2003 and 2009), the ACI Wason Medal (2012), and the ACI Charles S. Whitney Award (2015).

Wight received his BS and MS in civil engineering from Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, in 1969 and 1970, respectively; and his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Champaign, IL, in 1973.
