Neither the nominee nor the nominator need be a member of the ASME. However, nominators must not be active members of the respective award committees. Further descriptions of the awards are given at https://community.asme.org/applied_mechanics_division/w/wiki/3471.honors-awards.aspx.

Each nomination should consist of a form of nomination and several letters of support, as described at http://www.asme.org/Governance/Honors/SocietyAwards/Nominate.cfm.

Nominations should be submitted as PDF files to the Chair of the Division, Pradeep Sharma, by email (psharma@central.uh.edu), before 15 September 2017. Please take notice of this new deadline, after which no nominations will be accepted. 

Timoshenko Medal: The Timoshenko Medal, established in 1957, is conferred in recognition of distinguished contributions to the field of applied mechanics. Instituted by the Applied Mechanics Division, it honors Stephen P. Timoshenko, world-renowned authority in the field, and it commemorates his contributions as author and teacher.

Warner T. Koiter Medal: The Warner T. Koiter Medal, established in 1996, is bestowed in recognition of distinguished contributions to the field of solid mechanics with special emphasis on the effective blending of theoretical and applied elements of the discipline, and on a high degree of leadership in the international solid mechanics community.

Daniel C. Drucker Medal: The Daniel C. Drucker Medal, established in 1997, is conferred in recognition of distinguished contributions to the field of applied mechanics and mechanical engineering through research, teaching, and service to the community over a substantial period of time. Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award The Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award, established in 2008, and is conferred in recognition of an individual who has made significant contributions to the field of nonlinear dynamics through practice, research, teaching, and/or outstanding leadership.

Ted Belytschko Applied Mechanics Award: The Applied Mechanics Award was established in 1988 and renamed the Ted Belytschko Applied Mechanics Award in 2008. The Award is given to an outstanding individual for significant contributions in the practice of engineering mechanics; contributions may result from innovation, research, design, leadership or education.

Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award: The Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award was established in 2008 and is conferred in recognition of an individual who has made significant contributions to the field of nonlinear dynamics through practice, research, teaching and/or outstanding leadership.

Thomas J.R. Hughes Young Investigator Award: The Young Investigator Award was established in 1998 and renamed the Thomas J.R. Hughes Young Investigator Award in 2008. The Award recognizes special achievements in Applied Mechanics for young researchers.
