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 purpose of the Journal of Applied Mechanics is to serve as a vehicle for the communication of original research results of permanent interest in all branches of mechanics. The majority of the papers published in the journal are full-length articles of considerable depth. Comments on published papers may be submitted in the form of discussion, which is subject to a rebuttal by the author.
All areas of theoretical and applied mechanics are covered, including but not limited to: aerodynamics; aeroelasticity; biomechanics; boundary layers; composite materials; computational mechanics; constitutive modeling of materials; dynamics; elasticity; experimental mechanics; flow and fracture; heat transport in fluid flows; hydraulics; impact; internal flow; mechanical properties of materials; mechanics of shocks; micromechanics; nanomechanics; plasticity; stress analysis; structures; thermodynamics of materials and in flowing fluids; thermo-mechanics; turbulence; vibration; wave propagation; and any related areas.
