Materials Design client wins 2 GM Innovation Awards
Date:3/16/2010

Santa Fe, NM, USA -- March 12, 2010A Materials Design client and colleague (www.materialsdesign.com), Dr. Louis G. Hector, Jr. of the General Motors R&D Center, has been honored with two GM R&D Innovation Awards for his research on:

  1. Fundamentals of Interfacial Tribology
  2. Multi-scale Modeling of High-temperature Deformation in Aluminum

Both of these awards are named in honor of John M. Campbell, a former scientific director of the GM Research Laboratories, as a tribute to his efforts to promote GM scientific research. The award was established in 1980 to recognize recent outstanding contributions to pure or applied science made by a GM R&D Center member or team and published in the open literature.

"We're proud to see Dr. Hector honored and recognized by his peers at General Motors," said Erich Wimmer, CEO of Materials Design. "He has shown an enormous commitment to bridging the gap between the macroscopic engineering scale and phenomena on the atomic level. His work on interfacial tribology and multi-scale modeling of deformation in aluminum are brilliant examples of his skills."

Dr. Hector has been collaborating with Materials Design for nine years. "Not only have I enjoyed working closely with the outstanding scientists of Materials Design, but it has also been an essential part of this recognition and I share this success with them," said Dr. Hector.

The GM R&D Leadership team selects honorees with the primary criteria focusing on game-changing science and technology.
