Bernard Budiansky, professor emeritus of engineering at Harvard University, has won the ASME Medal of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. ASME, based in Washington, DC, established the medal in 1920 for "eminently distinguished engineering achievement." Budiansky's many accomplishments include a leading role in founding micromechanics, a relatively new branch of solid mechanics. Micromechanics examines the way microstructural features of materials affect the overall mechanical deformation and strength of solid bodies. Budiansky's early work in the field continues to assist physicists, material scientists, and design engineers.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
