2005 Walter D. Hodson Award

Dr. Lior Kogut of the Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering has been named the 2005 recipient of the prestigious Walter D. Hodson Award by the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE).   

The Hodson Award was established in 1950 and is given to the author of the best paper written by a junior STLE member and published by the Society during the year preceding the annual meeting. 


Kogut is receiving this award for his paper entitled “A Finite Element Based Elastic-Plastic Model for the Contact of Rough Surfaces.”  The STLE awards committee made this selection late last year after careful consideration of many fine candidates and papers.  Kogut will be presented with this award in April at the STLE annual meeting in Las Vegas.  


"Lior's outstanding accomplishment honors him as well as serves as a strong inspiration for all of us at Western Engineering," says Dean Berruti.
