University of Tennessee professor named to National Academy of Engineering
Date:2/6/2014

George Pharr, Chancellor's Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Joint Faculty Scientist in the Materials Science and Technology Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been named to the National Academy of Engineering. He becomes the fifth NAE member in the College of Engineering.

Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education and to the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing and implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.

Pharr, who is also director of the UT-ORNL Joint Institute for Advanced Materials and McKamey Professor of Engineering, has been elected for his "development of methods for determining mechanical properties of materials by nanoindentation."

"George is most deserving of this membership," said UT Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek. "He has made great contributions to his field, the classroom, and to UT and ORNL as director of JIAM. This honor is a reflection of the world-class scientist that he is."

Pharr studies nanoscale materials for uses in high strength materials for energy production and storage, electronics, modern medicine, computer hard drives and everyday products. He is an expert in the mechanical behavior of materials, nanoindentationtests that examine the mechanical properties of small volumes of materialsand small-scale mechanical behavior.

Pharr is also a fellow of the Materials Research Society and the American Society of Materials International. He has served as editor of numerous academic journals and is the recipient of several awards, including the 2010 Materials Research Society Innovation in Materials Characterization Award, the 20
