Dominik Schillinger wins John Argyris Award
Congratulations to Dominik Schillinger, doctoral candidate of IGSSE project team MAC B7 (High-End Toolbox for Simulation and Optimisation of Multi-Physics PDE Models) who has won the sixth competition for the John Argyris Award for the best paper by a young researcher in the field of Computational Mechanics! His paper An Isogeometric Design-through-analysis Methodology based on Adaptive Hierarchical Refinement of NURBS, Immersed Boundary Methods, and T-spline CAD Surfaces has been published in the journal Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering and is based on the results of his research stay abroad with Prof. Tom Hughes at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at Austin, Texas.
The award has been initiated to honor Professor John Argyris whose research work for more than 50 years had a pioneering impact on computational mechanics both in theory and in practice. The award recognizes his significant contribution both to the field and to the international journal Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, of which he was a founding editor and editor-in-chief for 30 years, and is sponsored by Elsevier, publisher of the Journal.
The award certificate and a prize of 2000 Euros will be conferred on Dominik by the President of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). The presentation is scheduled to be made at the X World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCMX) to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil from 8-13 July 2012.
