Professor Jwo Pan has recently been selected to receive two awards:
Pan was chosen by the Awards Committee, Mechanics Division, ASEE, to receive the 2012 Archie Higdon Distinguished Educator Award. The Archie Higdon Distinguished Educator Award is awarded annually by the Mechanics Division for distinguished and outstanding contributions to engineering mechanics education. The award is presented at the Mechanics Division Banquet at the society's Annual Conference which will be held in San Antonio, Texas, in June.
Pan has also been selected to receive the SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award in recognition of his SAE paper 2010-01-0961, "Fatigue Behavior of Dissimilar 5754/7075 and 7075/5754 Spot Friction Welds in Lap-Shear Specimens." The Arch T. Colwell Merit Award annually recognizes the authors of papers of outstanding technical or professional merit presented at a meeting of the Society or any of its sections during the calendar year. Papers are judged primarily for their value as new contributions to existing knowledge of mobility engineering.
