Former doctoral student Mohan Subramanian was recently named the recipient of the 2020 Henry Granjon Category C (Design and Structural Integrity) Award from the International Institute of Welding (IIW) for his paper, “Heterogeneous creep deformation behavior of functionally Graded Transition (GTJs).”
The award is given annually in four categories to an author of a paper devoted to research in welding technology or a related subject with the hope of stimulating interest in welding and allied processes among young people.
Subramanian received his PhD in engineering science from UT in 2019 and was advised by UT-ORNL’s Governor’s Chair Suresh Babu.
“I am so elated to receive this honor,” Subramanian said. “Starting as a graduate student back in the fall of 2014, I never imagined I would be able to accomplish something as big as this. Suresh, my co-advisors, and fellow graduate students at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory were instrumental in shaping me into a capable researcher.”
Since last November, Subramanian has been working as a research engineer at AK Steel Research and Innovation Center in Ohio.
In July, he will officially receive his award during the opening ceremony of the IIW Annual Assembly and International Conference in Singapore.
