Mechanical engineering doctoral student Fazlolah Mohaghegh, who is studying under H. S. Udaykumar, professor of mechanical and industrial engineering, has been selected as a 2016 ASME

Fluids Engineering Division Graduate Scholar of the Year.

The selection is based on his paper titled, "Efficiency of diffuse and share interface strongly coupled fluid structure interaction methods in fixed and moving boundaries."

He will receive a $1,500 scholarship from the Division in addition to a certificate of recognition from the Society, awarded during the July 10-14 ASME FEDSM Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting in Washington DC.

In 2012-2013, Mohaghegh also received the Sharada Devi Planjery Memorial Award, which supports two scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each to deserving students in the College of Engineering’s mechanical engineering program.
