Graduate student SeonHong Na awarded 2nd place in ASCE Engineering Mechanics Institute Student Paper Competition
2nd year graduate student SeonHong Na in our research group has awarded 2nd place in the Student Paper Competition in Inelasticity and Multiscale Behavior Committee at Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN. His work is on computational cryo-mechanics of frozen soil at finite deformation range. The committee has first chosen 5 finalists among all student paper submitted to the committee. The selected finalists are then given the opportunity to present in front of the judge and the top three papers are selected. SeonHong Na's work is selected by the judge as the top three papers among all of the submitted work to the Inelasticity and Multiscale Behavior Committee. Previously, former student of the research group Dr Yang Liu (now at MIT) has also won the Best Poster Competition at USNCCM San Diego.
Congratulations SeonHong for this wonderful achievement!
