New IGF Awards

Manson-Coffin IGF medal: The “Manson-Coffin IGF medal” is awarded to outstanding academics in recognition of their seminal contribution to the formalisation, implementation, and validation of novel theories and methodologies specifically devised to model fatigue related phenomena. The medal will be awarded for the first time in 2019, i.e., one hundred years after the birth of S. S. Manson and one hundred and two years after the birth of L. F. Coffin. These two researchers have played a pivotal role in our understanding of damage under time-variable loading by independently proposing to use cyclic elasto-plastic strains to assess lifetime in the low/medium-cycle fatigue regime.

Paolo Lazzarin IGF Medal: It is a pleasure to announce a new award promoted by IGF in memory of Prof. Paolo Lazzarin who suddenly passed away in 2014. Prof. Paolo Lazzarin has strongly contributed with his research to educate students and young researchers in the field of fatigue design by means of innovative local approaches. He has been a pioneering researcher in different fields of materials design. The “Paolo Lazzarin IGF Medal” is given in recognition of distinguished work that has made or is making a notable contribution to the branches of theoretical, numerical and experimental studies of stress fields near notches and fracture and fatigue assessment of materials in the presence of defects and geometrical discontinuities.
