Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Rodney Clifton
32 minutes, 40 seconds

Prof. Rodney Clifton is among the pioneers in the development of experimental techniques for characterizing high-strain-rate material response, recognized with membership in the National Academy of Engineering in 1989 and the ASME Timoshenko Medal in 2000. This AMR audio interview tells his story from a modest background in a one-room country school, through his labor on the early construction of Interstate 80 in Nebraska, to research on computational techniques for wave propagation in elastic-plastic materials, innovative approaches to characterizing the viscoelastic response of vocal folds, and a life-long commitment to teaching and learning.

The ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics publishes research contributions to the fundamental theory, algorithms, design, manufacture and experimental validation for mechanisms and robots. The current scope of the journal includes topics in theoretical and applied kinematics, mechanism synthesis and design, analysis and design of robot manipulators, hands, and legs, soft robotics, compliant mechanisms, origami and folded robots, printed robots, and haptic devices. The journal is also interested in novel fabrication, actuation and control techniques for mechanisms and robotics, bio-inspired approaches to mechanism and robot design, and the mechanics and design of micro- and nano-scale devices.
