The American Welding Society awards the Comfort A. Adams Lecture Award annually in honor of their Founder and First President to an outstanding scientist or engineering whose lecture presents some new and distinctive development in the field of welding.

Dr. Dong’s teaching and research interests include advanced design and analysis methodologies for engineering structures with an emphasis on welded structures and novel computational modeling techniques for manufacturing processes. He has developed numerous unique computational procedures that have been adopted by major manufacturing industries and National/International Codes & Standards. These include the mesh-insensitive structural stress method for fatigue design and life evaluation of welded structures adopted by 2007 ASME Div 2 International Code, the Joint 2007 ASME FFS-1/API 579 RP-1 Fitness for Service Code. Dr. Dong has published about 200 papers in peer-reviewed archive journals and major conference proceedings, giving over two dozens of Plenary/Keynote Lectures at major international conferences.
