Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Zhigang Suo
46 minutes, 32 seconds

Prof. Zhigang Suo is the recipient of the 2012 William Prager Medal from the Society of Engineering Science and a member of the US National Academy of Engineering. This AMR audio interview describes his pursuit to bring fundamental principles of deformation, fracture, diffusion, and thermodynamics to the creation of cutting-edge knowledge in the modeling and design of polymer gels and lithium-ion batteries, as well as his commitment to traditional and novel forms of scientific collaboration, including as co-founder of the iMechanica website and promoter of scientific exchange and mutual understanding between the US and China.

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.
