Prof. Wolfgang A. Wall received IACM Computational Mechanics Award
Prof. Wolfgang A. Wall, holder of the TUM Chair of Computational Mechanics, received the IACM Computational Mechanics Award. The award ceremony took place in Sao Paulo, Brasil, during the course of the ceremonial act at the world congress being held at the time. After the Gauss-Newton Medal for lifetime achievement, this is the highest award assigned by the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). The award is granted only every two years, to one or two people worldwide. Prof. Wall is one of the youngest scientists ever to have received this award. Prof. Wall was also main lecturer at the world congress and reported on the latest research of his work group. This honorable nomination as main lecturer took place already one year ago through a vote amongst the members of the hosting Latin-American scientific community.
This award once more certifies that TUM not only cooperates, but also fulfills a leading international role within this highly current scientific area; only a few months ago an award for the best dissertation in Europe within this area was presented to Dr. Lena Yoshihara, also a member of the Institute of Computational Mechanics of TUM.
