The Griffith Medal
The Griffith Medal is dedicated to researchers who have performed outstanding research in the area of fracture; this includes classical fracture mechanics, as well as numerical analyses and simulations. For example, the work to be selected could deal with new methods of analysis or experiments, including effects of environment and temperature; or with application of existing methods to new problems, such as novel materials/material systems and others.
