CARL-VON-BACH-COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL - Dedication

Carl von Bach, who founded the MPA in 1884, was a pioneer and pathfinder of modern materials testing as well as materials-orientated strength calculation. 
His integral approach was influenced by the cognition that there may be no contradiction between theory and practice i.e. between theoretical and experimental results. 
On this note he designed experiments which do not only depict simple loading relationships with laboratory specimens but also produced the reference to the component, especially with regard to the stress state, and therewith served to verify the theoretical results within a spectrum relevant to application. 
This then pathfinding concept is still just as valid today and still an important working basis of the Materials Testing Institute University of Stuttgart. 

The award of the Carl von Bach commemorative medal was founded in 1984 on the occasion of the 100 year anniversary of the existence of the MPA, in order to honour persons who rendered outstanding services in the support of research, development and teaching in the area of materials testing and strength calculation in accordance with Carl von Bach and in connection with the Materials Testing Institute MPA University of Stuttgart.
