Doug Adams was recently elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). This award is to acknowledge Prof. Adams for his research and development in structural health monitoring and damage prognosis for automotive & aerospace systems. He specializes in nonlinear vibration based methods of structural diagnostics/prognostics for materials and machines. Many of his discoveries have been implemented by industry for improving the reliability of engineered systems. Prof. Adams has authored or co- authored 66 archival journal articles and 123 conference articles and advised 13 PhD and 28 MS students. He has written a textbook on structural health monitoring and has won numerous awards for research and teaching including the Presidential Early Career Award, Structural Health Monitoring Person of the Year Award, and is listed in the Purdue Book of Great Teachers.

“Close your eyes and imagine you are living 200 years from now. Get up in the morning and you are not allowed to touch fossil fuels,” is the contemplative daydream of Dr. Rakesh Agrawal, distinguished professor of chemical engineering at Purdue University, master inventor and revolutionary thinker who simply cannot help himself, he said, in elevating the discussion of energy solutions and the everyday challenges a solar economy would resolve. Agrawal gave the prestigious fall public lecture for Texas A&M’s Institute for Advanced Study, for which he is a current Faculty Fellow. He addressed the plight of finite energy sources in light of practical, societal needs and the impact of which that has influenced progress and modernization, spanning the history of the human race.Read Full Story
