Journal of Applied Mechanics Award

The Journal of Applied Mechanics Award is provided by the Applied Mechanics Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers to honor the best paper which has been published in the Journal of Applied Mechanics during the two calendar years immediately preceding the year of the award. The award will be made annually to the corresponding author of the paper who received their Ph.D. no more than 10 years prior to July 1 of the year of award. Corresponding authors who have yet to receive a Ph.D. may also be considered. The award is presented at the AMD Banquet at the annual IMECE meeting.
