2020 Recipient

For pioneering contribution to the development of Thermoelastic Stress Analysis (TSA)‚Äč

Janice Dulieu-Barton
Janice Dulieu-Barton was appointed in May 2019 as a full Professor of Experimental Mechanics in the Bristol Composites Institute at the University of Bristol in the UK. Prior to this she worked at the University of Southampton for 20 years in the School of Engineering. She received her PhD from the University of Manchester in 1993 where she started her research on the topic now known as ‘Thermoelastic stress analysis’. She has published around 320 papers with 120 in archival journals, edited 11 conference proceedings and produced 8 book chapters. Janice’s expertise is in imaging for data rich materials characterisations and assessments of structural performance, with a focus on lightweight structural design particularly composite structures. She has won numerous grants that have allowed her to develop novel approaches in experimental mechanics, with as special focus on the development of infra-red imaging. Janice has been a member of SEM since 1994, she was awarded a fellowship of SEM in 2016 and received her silver certificate for 25 years of membership in 2019. She was chairman of the fellows committee and the Thermomechanics and Infra-red Imaging TD, as well as an Associate Editor of Experimental Mechanics. Janice has been very active in the European Experimental Mechanics community, notably chairing the British Society for Strain Measurement and serving on their National Council for 14 years, chairing and organising many conferences and technical seminars, including the 16th International Conference on Experimental Mechanics in Cambridge, attended by over 500 delegates. Janice is also active in training and mentoring early career researchers; she has supervised over 30 successful PhDs and her 5-day annual workshop on Experimental Mechanics for postgraduate students has run annually for the past 10 years and attracts around 25-30 delegates internationally.
