2005 AMD Honors and Awards

YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD
George Haller
For seminal contributions to nonlinear dynamics, including the development of analytic theories for chaos near resonance and for unsteady separation in fluid flows

L. Mahadevan
For significant research contributions to the exploration of nonlinear and nonequilibrium phenomena in continuum mechanics using geometry, analysis and scaling ideas in close conjunction with experiments


APPLIED MECHANICS DIVISION AWARD
Carl T. Herakovich
In recognition of his distinguished contributions to mechanics of fibrous composite materials, and his distinguished service to the mechanics and engineering science community


DANIEL C. DRUCKER MEDAL
Robert L. Taylor
For pioneering contributions to computational solid mechanics and, in particular, for the development of methods and software used worldwide for the calculation of inelastic response of structures


WARNER T. KOITER MEDAL
Raymond W. Ogden
For seminal contributions to nonlinear elasticity, its mathematical foundations and its applications


TIMOSHENKO MEDAL
Grigory I. Barenblatt
For seminal contributions to almost every area of solid and fluid mechanics,including fracture mechanics, turbulence, stratified flows, flames, flow in porous media, and the theory and application of intermediate asymptotics

Although in no way a typo affects the prestige of the medal, nor its recipients, I would just like to remind that Professor Koiter's first name was 'Warner' and not 'Walter'.
