Sehitoglu paper named journal’s best of 2016

A paper – “Critical Stress for Twinning, Slip, and Transformation in Ti-Based Shape Memory Alloys” – written by Professor Huseyin Sehitoglu and his graduate student Avinesh Ojha received the Best Paper Award from the journal Shape Memory and Superelasticity for 2016. 
Huseyin and Ojha also received Honorable Mention in 2015 (one of three papers tied for second place) for “Fatigue Crack Growth Fundamentals in Shape Memory Alloys,” co-authored by Yan Wu and Luca Patriarca.
The journal, launched in 2015 under ASM International and the International Organization on Shape Memory and Superelastic Technologies, focuses on shape memory alloys and the fundamental developments, innovative manufacturing, and novel use of these materials, with a goal of advancing new concepts, new experiments, and new theories in the field of shape memory phenomena. 
Sehitoglu is the John, Alice and Sarah Nyquist Chair in MechSE. His research focuses on thermo-mechanical behavior of materials, along with phase transformations and shape memory.
