About the Nowinski Lecture

The lecture series was initiated in 1975 in honor of the late Jerzy L. Nowinski, who was H. Fletcher Brown Professor at the University of Delaware from 1961 to 1973 and is recognized for his contributions to applied mechanics. Each year, one outstanding individual in this field is invited to present a lecture in the series, which is sponsored by the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
