The award is given in honor of the committee's first chair and in recognition of a paper of outstanding merit on soils for engineering purposes presented before ASTM.

Alshibli’s career concentration is geotechnical engineering. He received his bachelor of science and master of science in civil engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology, and his Ph.D. in the field from the University of Colorado (Boulder). Much of his recent work has been in academia at the Univeristy of Tennessee, as well as other institutions like King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Louisiana State University, and more.
