Mindlin Medal
The Raymond D. Mindlin Medal recognizes outstanding research contributions to
applied solid mechanics. ASCE membership is not a requirement
Mindlin Medal
Leon M. Keer
Leon M. Keer, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, NAE is
awarded the 2011 Raymond D. Mindlin
Medal, “for his outstanding contributions in
research on the life prediction of materials in
the vicinity of high stress concentrations and
development of novel methods and solutions
related to contact, fracture and wave
propagation in solids.”

2011 EMI Leonardo da Vinci Award
Established to recognize outstanding young investigators early in their careers for
promising ground-breaking developments in the field of Engineering Mechanics and
Mechanical Sciences as relevant to Civil Engineering, understood in the broadest
sense.
Markus J. Buehler, Ph. D., Aff.M.ASCE, Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, is presented the 2011 EMI Leonardo da Vinci
Award “for his pioneering research in the integration of atomistic
simulation with methods of continuum mechanics, applied to the
multi-scale modeling of the structure and mechanical behavior of
biological and protein based materials."

2010 ASCE Associate Editor Award
The Associate Editor Award recognizes associate editors who have provided
consistent and exemplary service to a particular journal or practice periodical or
who have made a substantial unique contribution to the enhancement of ASCE’s
publication activities.
George Z. Voyiadjis
George Z. Voyiadjis, D.Eng., F.ASCE, Louisiana State
University,is presented with ASCE’s Associate Editor Award. His
research focuses on the damage mechanics of metals, metal matrix
composites, and ceramics, with emphasis on theoretical modeling,
numerical simulation of material behavior, and experimental
correlations. Voyiadjis has more than 220 peer-reviewed journal
articles and 17 books to his credit. He served as an associate editor
of ASCE’s Journal of Engineering Mechanics from 1997 to 1999
and has been serving in that capacity since 2005.
