W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-Richard W. Neu, Ph.D., a professor in the Wodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Ga., has received the ASTM International Award of Merit from Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture. The Award of Merit and its accompanying title of fellow is ASTM's highest organizational recognition for individual contributions to standards activities.

Neu, who became a member of ASTM International in 1992, is a member at large on the E08 executive subcommittee and is vice chairman of Subcommittee E08.05 on Cyclic Deformation and Fatigue Crack Formation. He also serves as faculty advisor to the E08 student chapter at Georgia Tech. E08 has recognized his contributions with the Keith J. Miller Young Investigator Award in 1998 and two Awards of Appreciation (2008 and 2010). Neu also serves on the ASTM Committee on Publications and is the co-editor of Materials Performance and Characterization, ASTM's new premier materials peer-reviewed journal. He previously served as associate editor for the Journal of ASTM International.

A respected expert in the area of thermomechanical fatigue and fretting fatigue, Neu's research interests focus on the understanding and prediction of the fatigue behavior of materials. He joined the faculty at Georgia Tech as an assistant professor of mechanical engineering in 1995. He was promoted to associate professor of mechanical engineering in 2001 and professor in 2007. He also holds a courtesy appointment of professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech.

Outside ASTM International, Neu is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASM International and the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers. He is editor of Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures and associate editor of Tribology Transactions, and serves on the editorial advisory board of the International Journal of Fatigue.

Neu holds a B.S. in engineering mechanics, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, all from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions.
