Tezduyar receives APACM's Computational Mechanics Award

HOUSTON (January 7, 2020) - Tayfun E. Tezduyar, the James F. Barbour Professor of Mechanical Engineering (MECH) and co-director of the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling at Rice University, has received the Computational Mechanics Award of the Asian Pacific Association for Computational Mechanics (APACM).

Tezduyar, who joined the Rice faculty in 1998, was recognized for his "significant contributions in the field of computational mechanics." He was presented with the award during the opening ceremony of the 7th Asian Pacific Congress on Computational Mechanics (APCOM) held Dec. 17-20 in Taipei, Taiwan.

Tezduyar's research focuses on computational fluid structure interaction (FSI), cardiovascular FSI, heart valve and aorta computational flow analysis, spacecraft parachute FSI, bioinspired flapping-wing aerodynamics, aerodynamics of wind turbines, thermo-fluid analysis of ground vehicles, tires and disk brakes, flow analysis of turbochargers and other turbomachinery, and aerodynamics and structural mechanics of ram-air parachutes.
