ECCOMAS AWARD FOR THE BEST Ph.D THESES OF 2007 ON COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN APPLIED SCIENCES AND ENGINEERING
The meeting of the Evaluation Committee for the ECCOMAS award for the best PhD theses 2007 was held on May 5th, 2008 at CIMNE, Barcelona. As an answer to the call for tender, 17 theses were nominated by the ECCOMAS member associations.
After a detailed discussion, a secret voting was held in two phases. First, after a secret voting the number of thesis was reduced from 17 to 8. Then the committee ranked the 8 theses evaluating the different aspects of each and unanimously agreed on selecting 2 out of these 6 theses as the winners.
The two winners are:
- Dr. Jeroen Wackers (The Netherlands) for the thesis “Surface Capturing and Multigrid for Steady Free-Surface Water Flows“
- Dr. Lukasz Madej (Poland) for the thesis “Development of the Multi-Scale Analysis Model to Simulate Strain Localization Occurring During Material Processing“
These theses are outstanding works in Computational Methods combining excellent knowledge of both theory and practice.
All nominees will be recognized by a special diploma that will be sent directly to the candidate.
