The journal Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering has announced an award in honor of J. Tinsley Oden and Thomas J.R. Hughes. The Oden-Hughes Award for Best Paper was established in commemoration of Dr. Oden’s retirement from the journal on January 1st of 2022 and Dr. Hughes’ retirement on January 1st of 2023.
Collectively, Oden and Hughes served for more than 80 years as Editors of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering (CMAME). In recognition of their “outstanding contributions to Computational Science and Engineering, as well as to their dedication to CMAME for over 80 collective years,” publishing company Elsevier has established and named this $5,000.00 prize for them.
The Award Committee will be composed of the journal’s Editors and appointed members of its Editorial Board. A call for papers spanning the years 2021, 2022, and 2023 will begin January 1st of 2024 and last until February 15th of the same year.
Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering was founded over five decades ago, providing a platform for the publication of papers in the field of computational science and engineering. The range of appropriate contributions covers any type of computational method for the simulation of complex physical problems leading to the analysis and design of engineering products and systems.
