Prof. Gábor Stépán is the 2015 recipient of the ASME Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award in recognition of his seminal contributions to the analysis of stability of delay-differential equations with application to machine-tool vibrations, robot dynamics and control, wheel shimmy, and human balancing. This AMR audio interview depicts a research and educational career grounded in a love for applied mathematics and a desire for industrial relevance. It tells of his experiences with mainstreaming the counterintuitive effects of time delay, navigating a developing historical and geopolitical context at the conclusion of the cold war, and inspiring new generations of engineers to integrate practice and theory.
The ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics is a quarterly publication sponsored jointly by the Design Engineering and the Noise Control and Acoustics Divisions of ASME. The Journal is the premier international venue for publication of original research concerning mechanical vibration and sound. Our mission is to serve researchers and practitioners who seek cutting-edge theories and computational and experimental methods that advance these fields. Our published studies reveal how mechanical vibration and sound impact the design and performance of engineered devices and structures and how to control their negative influences.
