Somnath Ghosh recognized by three professional societies
Somnath Ghosh, the Michael G. Callas Chair Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, has received significant recognition from three professional societies: the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Society of Engineering Science (SES), and the International Conference on Computational Methods (ICCM). Ghosh is also the director of the Computational Mechanics Research Laboratory and the Center for Integrated Structure-Materials Modeling and Simulations.
ASME has awarded him the 2019 Ted Belytschko Applied Mechanics Award, which is given to an outstanding individual for significant contributions in the practice of engineering mechanics, and he will be officially recognized at ASME’s International Mechanical Engineering Conference and Exposition in Salt Lake City in mid-November 2019.
Ghosh has also been elected as an SES Fellow, which recognizes outstanding individuals for significant contributions in the practice of engineering mechanics; contributions may result from innovation, research, design, leadership or education. He will be honored during SES’s 56th Annual Technical Meeting in St. Louis in October 2019.
Finally, the ICCM awarded him the International Computational Method Medal at their international conference in Rome, Italy, last August.
