Professors Markus Buehler, Katia Bertoldi and Oscar Lopez-Pamies will receive the Journal of Applied Mechanics Award in 2014
Prof. Markus Buehler from MIT will receive the 2014 Journal of Applied Mechanics Award for his paper "Bioinspired graphene nanogut" (Journal of Applied Mechanics, v 80, article 061009, 2013). Profs. Katia Bertoldi from Harvard University and Oscar Lopez-Pamies from University of Illinois will also receive the 2014 Journal of Applied Mechanics Award for their paper "Some remarks on the effect of interphases on the mechanical response and stability of fiber-reinforced elastomers" (Journal of Applied Mechanics, v 79, article 031023, 2012).
The Journal of Applied Mechanics Award is provided by the Applied Mechanics Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers to honor the best paper which has been published in the Journal of Applied Mechanics during the two calendar years immediately preceding the year of the award. The award will be made annually to the corresponding authors of the papers who received their Ph.D. no more than 10 years prior to July 1 of the year of award. Corresponding authors who have yet to receive a Ph.D. may also be considered. The award will be presented at the AMD Banquet at the IMECE meeting.
