Professor Shaker A. Meguid (MIE) and Leslie Sills-Banks, Vice President of EURASEM.

Professor Shaker A. Meguid (MIE) has received the 2012 EUR ASEM Robert Hooke Award from the European Society for Experimental Mechanics for his outstanding contributions in the field of experimental mechanics applied to mechanical design and materials.

Shaker Meguid’s innovative research in engineering mechanics and design is recognized worldwide. His research over the past 30 years has contributed significantly to nano-micro-meso mechanics, electro-thermo-mechanically coupled problems, and fracture mechanics of nanoreinforced interfaces. Professor Meguid is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Mechanics and Materials in Design and has authored more than 430 papers and two books. He is a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers of Great Britain.

“I am pleased Professor Shaker Meguid has received international recognition from his colleagues in the experimental mechanics community,” said Jean Zu, Chair of the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering (MIE). “Professor Meguid is an exemplary leader in his field and on behalf of the faculty, I congratulate him on this highly deserved honour.”

EURASEM is a European non-profit scientific and engineering society whose general purpose is to provide a Europe-wide forum for the discussion of all aspects related to Experimental Mechanics. Since 1959, EURASEM has organized the International Conference on Experimental Mechanics (ICEM).

Professor Meguid received his award on July 26, 2012, at ICEM 15 in Porto, Portugal.
