Euromech Solid Mechanics Prize for Professor John Willis

Professor John Willis of DAMTP has been awarded the 2012 Solid Mechanics Prize of the European John WillisMechanics Society "for his outstanding scientific contributions to the mathematical aspects of a very wide range of phenomena in solid mechanics, including the effective properties of non-linear composites, bounding methods, elasto-dynamic fracture, dislocation theory, size effects in plasticity and homogenisation theory, and for his unique ability to work on practical problems by generating new mathematical foundations".

Professor Willis will give a Prize Lecture at the European Solid Mechanics Conference to be held in Graz, Austria, in July.
