IACM Computational Mechanics Award

Jacob Fish, the Rosalind and John J. Redfern '33 Chaired Professor of Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and director of the university's Multiscale Science and Engineering Center, has won the biennial Computational Mechanics Award from the International Association for Computational Mechanics.

"We are extremely proud of Dr. Jacob Fish's selection for this prestigious award from the IACM. This is the highest recognition from his peers of his research and leadership in the field of computational mechanics," said David Rosowsky, dean of the School of Engineering at Rensselaer.

Given every two years, the IACM Computational Mechanics Award recognizes outstanding contributions or accomplishments by a researcher in the field. The IACM will honor Fish in July at the World Congress on Computational Mechanics in Sydney, Australia.

Fish's research encompasses a wide variety of science and engineering disciplines, from investigating the structural integrity of mechanical, aerospace, and civil systems, to electronic packaging, nanostructured material systems, biological systems, and energy absorption systems. Fish is considered a pioneer in multiscale computation, and for emphasizing in his research how nature is replete with systems that encompass interacting behaviors occurring across a range of spatial and temporal scales.

A prolific author, Fish has written more than 160 journal articles and book chapters. He is a past president of United States Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM), founder and editor-in-chief of the International Journal for Multiscale Computational Engineering, as well as associate editor of the International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering. He also sits on the editorial board of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering and International Journal of Computational Engineering Science.
