Dr. Hugh Bruck Earns ASME Fellow Distinction

Congratulations to Hugh Bruck, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, who has been elected Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

Founded in 1880, ASME has become an international organization for the advancement of mechanical engineering’s many disciplines. According to ASME, their mission is to promote and enhance the technical competency and professional well-being of our members, and through quality programs and activities in mechanical engineering, better enable its practitioners to contribute to the well-being of humankind. The Fellow distinction is a prestigious one, with nine rigorous qualifications each nominee must meet and exceed. Thus, Dr. Bruck’s appointment as an ASME Fellow indicates he has made significant contributions to the engineering profession.

Graduating with a Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology, Dr. Bruck continues to have an illustrious career. His specialty is in processing, thermomechanical characterization and computational design of multifunctional and functionally graded materials, energetic materials, nanocomposite materials, smart structures, and thin films, with a concentration on experimental methods for microscale and nanoscale materials characterization. He has made many significant contributions to the fields of processing of new metal alloys and composite materials, and to the development of multi-scale mechanical characterization techniques for materials and structures. Dr. Bruck has compiled 45 journal publications, over 50 conference proceedings and 1 book chapter. Along with his newly acquired Fellows honor, Dr. Bruck has received the Fulbright Scholar Award, the A.J. Durelli Award from the Society for Experimental Mechanics (2006) and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award (2000).
