Prof. David Barnett to receive 2018 Drucker Medal of ASME
"for the development of the integral formalism for solving problems in anisotropic elasticity, which he used to make fundamental breakthroughs in the understanding of defects and interfacial waves in solids."
The Daniel C. Drucker medal was established in 1997 and is conferred in recognition of distinguished contributions to the field of applied mechanics and mechanical engineering through research, teaching and service to the community over a substantial period of time. Instituted by the Applied Mechanics Division, the medal honors Dr. Daniel Drucker and commemorates his service to the profession.
The award comes with a $2000 check, a Bronze Medal, Certificate and Travel expense supplement to attend the award ceremony presentation.
