USACM Announces Two New Medals

USACM is pleased to announce the establishment of two new Medals.

The Belytschko Medal,  named in honor of Professor Ted Belytschko, is given in recognition of outstanding and sustained contributions to computational structural or solid mechanics (CSM). These contributions shall generally be in the form of important research results that significantly advance the understanding of theories and methods impacting CSM. Industrial applications and engineering analysis that advance CSM shall also represent accomplishments worthy of recognition. [This award replaces the former USACM Computational Structural Mechanics Award.

The Thomas J. R. Hughes Medal, named in honor of Professor Thomas J.R. Hughes,  is given in recognition of outstanding and sustained contributions to the broad field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). These contributions shall generally be in the form of important research results that significantly advance the understanding of theories and methods impacting CFD. Industrial applications and engineering analyses that advance CFD shall also represent accomplishments worthy of recognition. [This award replaces the former USACM Computational Fluid Mechanics Award.]
