Dr. K. Matous has been promoted to Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering.


Dewen Yushu won the prestigious Robert J. Melosh Medal !!

Robert J. Melosh Competition is one of the most prestigious international student competitions in the computational mechanics area. The Robert J. Melosh Medal Competition was inaugurated by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University in 1989, to honor Professor Melosh for his pioneering work on the finite element method and for his dedication to research, teaching, and service during his tenure at Duke University. The winner of the Competition, as determined on the basis of a submitted extended abstract and oral presentation of the paper, receives the Robert J. Melosh Medal and a $500 honorarium. The names of winners are inscribed on a plaque displayed in Hudson Hall at Duke University.
