Profile
Summary
Norman M. Wereley is Chair and Minta Martin Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland. His research interests are in dynamics and control of smart structures, with emphasis on active and passive vibration damping control applied to rotorcraft, aerospace and automotive systems. Key research areas are: (1) theory and application of semi-active magnetorheological dampers, and application to occupant protection, vibration isolation, and stability augmentation systems using advanced feedback control strategies, and (2) actuator development using smart materials (PZT, PMN, GalFeNOL, TerFeNOL), pneumatics, and passive/active compliant structures for morphing aircraft or helicopter rotor blades. Wereley has published over 210 journal articles, 16 book chapters, and over 250 conference articles. Wereley is co-inventor on 20 patents and several patents pending. He is Editor of the Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures and associate editor of Smart Materials and Structures, AIAA Journal, and Advances in Materials Research. He was Chair (2012-2013) of the SPIE Smart Structures/NDE Symposium, and has chaired several international conferences. Wereley has been awarded the AIAA National Capital Section Engineer of the Year (2009), AIAA Sustained Service Award (2011), AHS Harry T. Jensen Award (2011), and ASME Adaptive Structures and Materials Systems Best Paper Awards in Structural Dynamics and Control (2004, 2012). Wereley was recipient of the ASME Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Prize (2012), SPIE Smart Structures and Materials Lifetime Achievement Award (2013), and SPIE Smart Structures and Materials Product Implementation Award (2013). Wereley is a Fellow of SPIE, AIAA, AHS, ASME, and IOP; a lifetime member of SPIE, AIAA, and AHS; and a senior member of IEEE. Dr. Wereley holds a B.Eng. (1982) from McGill University, and M.S. (1987) and Ph.D. (1990) in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
