W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., -Mississippi State University student Shakhrukh Ismonov and University of Wisconsin student Scott Hamel are the recipients of the 2010 ASTM International Graduate Scholarship. The ASTM Graduate Scholarship rewards graduate students who have demonstrated high levels of interest in or involvement with ASTM International standards. This is only the second year of the ASTM Graduate Scholarship, and the first year with two winners.

A Ph.D. candidate and research and graduate teaching assistant in the mechanical engineering program at Mississippi State, Ismonov's research focuses on 3-D fatigue crack growth modeling, assessment of closure measurement techniques and influence of residual stress fields on fatigue crack growth. He graduated magna cum laude from Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, Ark., with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 2006.

Ismonov is a student member of ASTM International, and an active participant in Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture meetings and symposia. He is also a member of ASME International and has co-authored four articles that have been published in the International Journal of Fatigue, the Journal of ASTM International and the Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology.

Hamel is a Ph.D. candidate, research and teaching assistant in the civil engineering department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wis. He holds a B.S. in civil engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Mass., and an M.S. in civil engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder, Colo., and he is a licensed professional engineer in the states of Colorado and Wisconsin.

Hamel's research is focused on long-term creep of wood-plastic composites. A student member of ASTM International, he has had the opportunity to participate in the standards development meetings of Committee D20 on Plastics. He is also a member of the American Institute of Steel Construction and the UW-Madison chapter of Engineers Without Borders.
