2019 Warner T. Koiter Medal – Professor K. T. Ramesh

The Executive Committee of the ASME Applied Mechanics Division is pleased to announce and congratulate Professor K.T. Ramesh, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, as the recipient of the 2019 Warner T. Koiter 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 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. The award was funded by the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, to honor Warner T. Koiter for his fundamental work in nonlinear stability of structures in the most general sense, for his diligence in the effective application of these theories, his international leadership in mechanics, and his effectiveness as a teacher and researcher. 

Professor Ramesh receives the Koiter Medal for pioneering scientific contributions and international leadership in the area of dynamic material instabilities and material failure in diverse fields spanning the mechanics of traumatic brain injury to nanostructured materials and planetary impact.
