Zhu Chosen as Somiya Award Winner for 2015
July 9th, 2015
The Somiya Award, given annually by the International Union of Materials Research Societies, acknowledges a team of researchers who collaborate across continents and whose research has had a significant impact in the world today. Named after Dr. Shigeyuki Somiya, Emeritus Professor of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, the Somiya Award is quite an honor.
For 2015, the award has been presented to Professor Ruslan Z. Valiev of Ufa State Aviation Technical University (Ufa, Russia) and MSE@NCSU's own Professor Yuntian Zhu. Their research is titled, "Resolving the Paradox of Superior Strength and Ductility of Ultrafine-Grained Metals Through Nanostructuing Design". Later in the year, there will be an award ceremony that honors both award recipients.
