Bio Sketch of Professor Olivier A. Bauchau
Dr. Bauchau earned his B.S. degree in engineering at the Université de Liège, Belgium, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has been on the Faculty at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, and Mechanics at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York (1983-1995). Next, he was a Professor at Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering, at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia (1995-2010). He is now professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute. His fields of expertise include finite element methods for structural and multibody dynamics, rotorcraft and wind turbine comprehensive analysis, and experimental mechanics and dynamics. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and member of the American Helicopter Society. His book entitled “Flexible Multibody Dynamics” has won the 2012 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association.
