The Washington Academy of Sciences is an affiliated academy comprised of over sixty science societies. They have published articles of scientific interest since 1899. Over their years they have honored many for their achievements in STEM and continue to do so today.
multi-scale computation and computational mechanics
PhD students Mohsen Taheri and Callan Luetkemeyer are recipients of the 2020 Ivor K. McIvor Award from the College of Engineering.
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.
The Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery of Engineering has announced two recipients of the Clare Boothe Luce graduate fellowships. One of the winners is Elizabeth Livingston, MS, a graduate of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
Krishna Garikipati is a professor of mechanical engineering and mathematics and has been announced as a Fellow of the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM).
The 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.
Professor Kazuhiro Saitou gave a keynote talk at the International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (ASME IDETC/CIE) in Quebec City on August 26-29, 2018. His talk was titled "Obsessed with assembly: a bystander’s view of computational assembly design."
