Nasr Ghoniem of UCLA has been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) with the following citation:

"Professor Ghoniem is an educator, inventor, and R&D leader. After his Ph.D. from UW, he joined UCLA, where he is a University of California Distinguished Professor. During the first 15 years of his career, he invented a low-activation class of steels that is recognized as a breakthrough for structural applications in fission and fusion energy systems. He became one of the world leaders in R&D of radiation-resistant materials for energy and space applications. In the next 15 years, he established himself at the forefront of computational mechanics & multi-scale modeling of materials, where he developed ground breaking models of plasticity."
