ICES Professor Thomas J.R. Hughes gave the opening plenary lecture at the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM) Thematic Conference on Isogeometric Analysis and Meshfree Methods in La Jolla.
Hughes' lecture, entitled "Isogeometric Analysis: Present, Past and Future," served to lay the foundation for knowledge transfer between the two academic communities.
The development of Isogeometric Analysis (IGA) and Meshfree Methods, both very important and highly visible areas of Computational Mechanics, was motivated by vastly different needs in engineering analysis. Read more.Posted: Oct. 20, 2016
ICES Professor Gregory J. Rodin was named the recipient of the 2016 Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics (ASE/EM) LUNAR Council Teaching Award. Along with the award, students also presented a $500 check to Rodin during the department’s Fall Festival event at the Anna Hiss Gym Courtyard on Friday, Oct. 14.
Members of LUNAR (Leadership, Undergraduate Networking and Recruitment) Council give the award to an ASE/EM faculty member annually in order to recognize the impact they have made on the students’ educational experience through superior teaching. The council is an ASE/EM student leadership organization that serves to represent all department student groups and organizations. Read more.Posted: Oct. 20, 2016
ICES Professor Rachel Ward received the 2016 Institute for Mathematics and its Applications' (IMA) Prize in Mathematics and its Applications.
Ward, an associate professor in mathematics, was recognized for her contributions to the mathematics of machine learning and signal processing.
The prize is awarded annually to a mathematical scientist who is within 10 years of having earned her Ph.D. degree. The award recognizes an individual who has made a transformative impact on the mathematical sciences and their applications. Read more.Posted: Oct. 13, 2016
ICES Professor Thomas J. R. Hughes gave the inaugural Ernst Melan Lecture at Vienna University of Technology.
Hughes is recognized for pioneering research contributions to the analysis of structural, solid, and fluid systems, for development of computational methods incorporated in industrial and commercial software used throughout the world, for creating entirely new fields of research, such as Isogeometric Analysis, which, since its inception in 2005, has become the most active area of research in Computational Aided Engineering and Computer Aided Geometric Design.
