multi-scale computation and computational mechanics

ME Research Team a Finalist for the 2019 Gordon Bell Prize

Mechanical Engineering Associate Professor, Vikram Gavini, along with his group members Sambit Das (PhD student, ME) and Dr. Phani Motamarri (Assistant Research Scientist, ME) have taken great strides in accelerating density functional theory (DFT) calculations on some of the world’s largest supercomputers, via the development of DFT-FE—a massively parallel real-space code for large-scale DFT calculations of materials properties.

ASME Pi Tau Sigma Gold Medal Awarded to Jesse Capecelatro

Jesse CapecelatroThe American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) partnered with Pi Tau Sigma (National Mechanical Engineering Honor Society) in 1938 to create the joint award of the Pi Tau Sigma Gold Medal. This award celebrates and honors outstanding work in mechanical engineering within ten years following graduation with a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering or a related field.
