Prof. Joe Goddard of the University of California San Diego is the 2012 recipient of the G.I. Taylor Medal of the Society of Engineering Science, awarded for outstanding research contributions in the mechanics of complex fluids and the thermodynamics and transport properties of physical and biological systems. This AMR audio interview features his personal reflections on an international career at the forefront of applied mechanics research, the science and scientists straddling disciplinary boundaries, and work on his “petit soufflerie”, a wind tunnel for probing boundary-layer hydrogen kinetics in atmospheric reentry problems.
The ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics publishes research contributions to the fundamental theory, algorithms and applications for robotic and machine systems.
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.
