2016 IUTAM Congress and General Assembly
Mentoring Breakfast 2016 Photo
Early Careers at the USNC/TAM Mentoring Breakfast, ICTAM 2016 (click to enlarge)

Nadine Aubry of the United States was selected as the next president of IUTAM. Dr. Aubry is a current member of the USNC/TAM, and is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). She is Dean of the College of Engineering and a University Distinguished Professor at Northeastern University.

The IUTAM Bureau Prize for best lecture in Solid Mechanics by a young scientist was awarded to Professor Stavros Gaitanaros. Dr. Gaitanaros is an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and was recognized for his work on the effect of polydispersity on the crushing of open-cell random foams.

The USNC/TAM was proud to host a Mentoring Breakfast at ICTAM 2016. 46 early career professionals and mentors networked at the breakfast, during a session facilitated by USNC/TAM member Wendy Crone.

On April 22 and 23, the USNC/TAM held its 2016 meeting at the National Academies in Washington, D.C. Presentations from invited speakers are available for download here. If you are looking for the presentations from the 2015 USNC/TAM meeting, they are located here.

17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
The 17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics was held June 15-20, 2014 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. The Congress was co-chaired by John Foss and Tom Pence. Technical sessions covered a range of topics, including fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics, vibrations, controls, biomechanics, computational mechanics, applied physics, and applied mathematics. In addition, on June 15, the USNC/TAM held its meeting. For more details, please visit the 17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics website
