报告题目：Impact Through Collaboration: Activities of the Aerospace and Aviation Discipline at RMIT University
报告人： Prof. Pier Marzocca (RMIT University)
This presentation will cover research and training activities carried out within the Aerospace Engineering and Aviation Discipline at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. The discipline is developing enabling technologies for next-generation air transportation systems and composite materials and structures have been areas of strength of the Centre for more than 25 years. The presentation will also cover elements of research on smart diagnostics capability for the identification of aircraft control surface free-play and other asset diagnostic tools under development.
Dr Pier Marzocca is a Professor and Associate Dean of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering and Aviation Discipline) at RMIT University since 2015. Prior to joining RMIT Dr. Marzocca was Professor in the Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Department at Clarkson University where he remains active as a Research Professor. He received his doctoral degree in 2001 in Aerospace Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, and worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Virginia Tech. Professor Marzocca has been working in the field of aerospace engineering since 1996 and specializes in aeroelasticity and unsteady aerodynamics, structural dynamics and controls, structural health monitoring, diagnostics and prognostics of aerospace systems, and unmanned aerial vehicle systems. He leads/co-leads a number of research projects, totaling more than $12M USD in funding from several government agencies, including DST, ARC, DSI, NSF, AFOSR, ARMY, ONR, NASA and industries, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, GE and Pratt & Whitney. Dr. Marzocca’s received several awards including the Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award and the Forest R. McFarland Award from SAE. He is an Associate Fellow of AIAA, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences, Associate Editor of ASCE Journal of Aerospace Engineering, and Journal of Thermal Stresses, and author and/or co-author of over 400 archival papers.
