Ralph Smith Named 2016 winner of ASME Adaptive Structures and Materials Systems Award

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has named Ralph Smith the 2016 winner of its Adaptive Structures and Materials Systems Award. Professor Smith was selected “for extraordinary contributions in the development of smart materials and adaptive structures through constitutive model development, modeling and nonlinear control, and uncertainty analysis; and for modeling research that has been validated across a broad range of smart materials.” The award will be presented at the Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems in Stowe, Vermont, September 28–30.
