On the Cover Dr. Theodor Krauthammer, director of Penn States Protective Technology Center in the College of Engineering, has dedicated himself to researching the most effective protective design techniques and sharing his findings with practicing professionals. He reviewed the renovation plans for the Pentagon prior to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack. His recommendations saved 20 to 30 percent of the cost of implementing protective measures for the building. After the terrorist attack, he contributed his expertise to the rebuilding of the Pentagon as a member of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers team responsible for helping to redesign the damaged section, as well as recommend modifications for other parts of the Pentagon. The team received the 2002 Engineer Research and Development Award for Outstanding Team Effort for valuable contribution to the Pentagon Rebuild Retrofit Program Study.|
