  • Profile

    Lawrence C. Bank is a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the Grove School of Engineering at the City College of New York (CCNY) which is a unit of the City University of New York (CUNY).  From September 2010 to December 2012 he was Vice President and Associate Provost for Research and Sponsored Programs at the City College of New York.  From 2008-2010, Dr. Bank was the Program Director for the Structural Materials and Mechanics Program at the US National Science Foundation (NSF).  He served as the lead Program Director the 2010 EFRI Solicitation focused on the Science of Sustainable Buildings.   He is a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), as well as a Fellow, and currently President of the International Institute for FRP Composites in Construction (IIFC).  He is a registered Professional Engineer (PE).

     

    Dr. Bank received his BSc degree from the Technion in 1980, and his MS and PhD degrees from Columbia University in New York City in 1982 and 1985, respectively.  Prior to studying at that, Dr. Bank studied in the Schools of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.  He has previously been employed as a Structural Engineer with Leslie Robertson and Associates in New York City, and as a faculty member at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, The Catholic University of America and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Dr. Bank's primary research is in the areas of the mechanics and design of composite material structures with an emphasis on civil and infrastructure applications, the analysis of sustainable buildings and materials, and engineering of paperboard materials and structures.  He has authored numerous technical publications in these fields, holds a number of patents and is the author of the widely-used textbook "Composites for Construction: Structural Design with FRP Materials" (Wiley, 2006).
