Benjamin Hiner received one of two Grimm Scholarships presented during The Masonry Society’s Annual Meeting on October 14, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee. Hiner’s research will focus on the study of lightweight grout to characterize its behavior in tension, shear, and bond with reinforcement. He will be studying at Clemson University under the direction of Dr. Laura Redmond.
Established in 2007 to honor the memory of Clayford T. Grimm, the Grimm Student Scholarship is awarded every year to a Master’s level graduate student who is conducting research in masonry. The investigation can be in masonry materials, structures, construction, or architecture and must be performed under the direction of a member of The Masonry Society.
