Shelley Wiederhorn is honored for his ground-breaking work on explaining the fundamentals of fatigue in glass and for his persistence in continuing to develop a deep understanding of the crack-growth which is responsible for fatigue in glass. His work changed dramatically our scientific thinking about mechanical fatigue in glass, its impact on both mechanical testing and mechanical design, and the ability to predict and/or proof-test the mechanical performance of advanced glasses.
