Professor Ian Ward named Staudinger-Durrer Prizewinner
At Materials Day, which was held November 13th at ETH Zurich, Professor Ian Ward won the Staudinger-Durrer Prize for his contributions in the area of mechanical properties of solid polymers and polymer-based composites. The prize, named after Hermann Staudinger and Robert Durrer, honors those with outstanding services to materials science.
Professor Ian M. Ward is an internationally-recognized and well-respected authority on the mechanical properties of solid polymers. Currently, he is a professor of Physics at Leeds University, a position he’s held since 1970. He is also a co-founder of the British Polymer Physics Group and the winner of several other awards, including 2004’s the Glazebrook Medal of the Institute of Physics and the Netlon Award. In addition, he is the co-author of Mechanical Properties of Solid Polymers, now in its 3rd Edition.
