Regents’ Professor Chandra Desai has been awarded the 2009 Nathan M.
Newmark Medal by the Structural Engineering and Engineering Mechanics
Institutes of the American Society of Civil Engineers.


In 2008, Desai was selected by the ASCE’s Geo-Institute to receive the 2007 Karl Terzaghi Award.

Desai has the unique honor of receiving both
awards, which are among the most prestigious at the ASCE. These awards
reflect the multidisciplinary nature of Desai’s outstanding and seminal
work and its application in the fields of geomechanics, and structural
and engineering mechanics.

 The Newmark Medal citation reads: “For outstanding and seminal
contributions for development and application of new constitutive
models, laboratory test devices, and computational methods in
geomechanics, structural mechanics and other area in engineering.”  The
selection committee also noted Desai’s success in the area of
computational mechanics, with emphasis on the finite element and finite
difference methods, and material modeling.
