Each quadrennium, the International Congress on Fracture, ICF, the world’s premier professional society of researchers pursuing the understanding and causes of fracture to prevent fracture and damage progression in engineering materials and structures, recognizes select members for their outstanding contributions to this important field of research. The field of Fracture and Structural Integrity is relevant to Aerospace, Power Generation, Chemical Process, Biomedical, Structural Materials, Electronics, and Recreation industries and in Geophysics and engages researchers in several academic disciplines. Four gold medals, and one silver medal named after pioneers in the field of fracture are presented at its quadrennial conference. The selection of winners was made by a committee consisting of past medal recipients.
