SPIE Smart Structures/NDE Researchers Look to Nature for Inspiration
Date:4/25/2013

ltrasonic and electromagnetic waves for NDE and SHM”
  •     Norman Wereley (University of Maryland, College Park) on “Bioinspired pneumatic artificial muscle actuator system design for aerospace and robotics applications.”
  • Applications including carbon nanotubes in artificial muscles, refreshable Braille displays for cellphones and tablets, and multi-degree-of-freedom sensors for robots highlighted this year’s popular annual EAP (electro-active-polymers)-in-Action demonstration session.

    Among awards presented, EAP Chair Yoseph Bar-Cohen (Jet Propulsion Lab) recognized three new SPIE Fellows:

    •     Sridhar Krishnaswamy, Northwestern University
    •     Raúl Martín-Palma, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
    •     Qibing Pei, University of California, Los Angeles.

    Roger Ohayan (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers) and Norman Wereley (University of Maryland, College Park) were dual recipients of the Smart Structures and Materials Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Wereley also accepted the Smart Structures Product Implementation Award on behalf of a collaboration between Techno-Sciences, Inc., and the University of Maryland.

    SPIE/ASME Best Student Paper awards were presented to:

    •     Haixiong Tang, University of Florida (first place)
    •     Christopher Nonis, University of Massachusetts, Lowell (second place)
    •     Sri Vikram Palagummi, North Carolina State University (third place).

    The symposium included 10 parallel conferences on emerging technologies and advanced research with commercial, medical, aerospace, military, healthcare, and other applications. Technical sessions were complemented by a two-day exhibition featuring vendors of s
