2019 Daniel C. Drucker Medal - Professor John Bassani

The Executive Committee of the ASME Applied Mechanics Division is pleased to announce and congratulate Professor John Bassani, Richard H. and S. L. Gabel Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, University of Pennsylvania, as the recipient of the 2019 Daniel C. Drucker Medal. This award, which includes a medal, a plaque, and an honorarium, will be presented at the AMD Honors and Awards Banquet, tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, November 12, 2019, during the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition, to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, November 8-14, 2019.

The Daniel C. Drucker Medal was established in 1997 and 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. Instituted by the Applied Mechanics Division, this medal honors Dr. Daniel Drucker and commemorates his service to the profession.

Professor Bassani receives the Drucker Medal for distinguished contributions to the mechanics of materials in the areas of dislocation mechanics, crystal plasticity, texture evolution, creep fracture, interfacial fracture, and grain boundaries, using innovative methods that link atomistic modeling, nonlinear continuum mechanics, and computational mechanics.
