Somnath Ghosh, the Michael G. Callas Chair Professor in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering, has received a 2021 J. Tinsley Oden Medal from the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics. This award is given in recognition of outstanding and sustained contributions to computational science, engineering, and mathematics.

Ghosh has been recognized for “outstanding fundamental contributions to computational mechanics of materials through the development of innovative methodologies in spatio-temporal multi-scale modeling of heterogeneous materials transcending the mechanics and materials communities.”

Ghosh’s research focuses on computational mechanics modeling, particularly multi-scale structure-materials analysis and simulations, multi-physics modeling and simulation of multi-functional materials, materials characterization, process modeling, and emerging fields like Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME). He will be presented with the award in a virtual ceremony to be held during the 16th U.S. National Congress on Computational Mechanics on July 26-29.
