    A great opportunity to engage Penn State undergrads in advancing your products -- sponsor a senior capstone design project (and maybe find future employees)!

    It was great to catch up with my PhD advisor, Tino Mingori, while I was on sabbatical in southern California. Perhaps some of you know him? He used to surf at this beach at Paradise Cove back in the day!

    Based on my limited time at JPL, this is accurate. "Planetary scientists are starting to see subsurface oceans everywhere." (and "This rumpled fabric at the corner looks like evidence of ongoing tectonic activity.")

    The Mobility Aids on Board Improve Lives and Empower All Act, introduced Friday, would require the Transportation Department to research the feasibility of allowing passengers to board a flight directly in their wheelchairs. It would also require airlines to provide information regarding what mobility aids can safely fit on a flight, and order public reports on the type of damage that occurs to wheelchairs and other aids. The MOBILE Act was introduced in the Senate by Sens. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and John Thune (R-S.D.) and in the House by Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) and Pete Stauber (R-Minn.).The act comes as Congress prepares to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration’s funding and programs this year.

    What the world needed was another book on structural dynamics 🤷♂️ – so we wrote it, and Cambridge University Press published it. https://lnkd.in/gihzBXQHThis one addresses essential concepts and tools at a graduate level in an aerospace context, including uncommon treatment of damping, rotating systems, and parametric excitation. Former students who took a course with this title from me might be amused to know that I took courses based on an early version of this material some years ago from Peretz Friedmann. And that Daning Huang, my younger colleague at Penn State, took updated versions of those courses more recently. It took almost as much work (for me, anyway) to generate and solve (often with code) the homework problems. Instructors and students will hopefully appreciate that effort. We will be hitting the road shortly on a book tour – be sure to get your autographed copy!😉#Aerospace #StructuralDynamics

    I'm finally getting around to closing this chapter: I have completed my term as Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs in the College of Engineering at Penn State. I'm grateful for the privilege of having worked with a great team of people, top to bottom. Together, we advanced the college significantly in the last six and a half years. External research support increased by 60% and overall grad student enrollment by 40%, including a 50% increase in the number of doctoral students (60% of total) and a 66% increase in the number of women (25%). The number of US grad students also increased by more than 60% (45% of total), including a 125% increase in US women (25%), and a 115% increase in students from other underrepresented groups (12%). And we stood up a number of timely new degree programs. It was exhilarating and exhausting, and time to pass the baton. The college has a bright future -- and is in great hands!#PennState#PennStateEngineering #PennStateResearch #PennStateGradSchool
