Winners of the Design News Engineering Achievement Awards will be at the
Design News Booth (2811) Wednesday from 11 to noon to explain how they solved
some engineering's toughest problems.
Paul Bevilaqua, chief engineer of advanced development projects at Lockheed
Martin, will be there to answer questions about how he solved the daunting
problem of accomplishing vertical life and supersonic flight without paying
heavy penalties in airplane engine size and other factors.
Likewise, Dr. and engineer Tony DiGioia will describe how he developed Hip
Nav, a new computer-based surgical planning and guidance tool. The tool has cut
in half the number of hip implants that get dislocated after one year.
And Bruce Ruffert and Brett Blaisdell will explain, respectively, how they
improved motor cycle design and camera design.
Visitors to the Design News booth can ask all these engineering winners
questions and share their design ideas with them.
