Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Professor Edwin Kreuzer
46 minutes, 45 seconds

Professor Edwin Kreuzer is the President of the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg, Germany, and former President of Hamburg University of Technology. This AMR audio interview describes his innovation of computer-aided methods in the analysis of multibody systems, his exploration of the nonlinear dynamics of airship-borne mechanical cranes and underwater robotic vehicles, and his perspectives on the need to train students to make creative use of fundamental knowledge of engineering science in service to society.

About This Journal

The ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) serves the broad design community as the venue for scholarly, archival research in all aspects of the design activity with emphasis on design synthesis. JMD has traditionally served the ASME Design Engineering Division and its technical committees, but it welcomes contributions from all areas of design with emphasis on synthesis. JMD communicates original contributions, primarily in the form of research articles of considerable depth but also technical briefs, design innovation papers, book reviews, and editorials.
