Hans DeSmidt, an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering, recently received the 2009 Rudolf Kalman Best Paper Award for his article, “Multi-Harmonic Adaptive Vibration Control of Misaligned Driveline via Active Magnetic Bearings,” published in the Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control. Dr. DeSmidt’s research is concerned with structural dynamics, active vibration control, and health monitoring, with specialization in rotorcraft applications.
DeSmidt, who joined the faculty of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 2005, was granted a National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2008 for his work on structural health monitoring and damage detection.
