Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Gábor Stépán
43 minutes, 23 seconds

Prof. Gábor Stépán is the 2015 recipient of the ASME Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award in recognition of his seminal contributions to the analysis of stability of delay-differential equations with application to machine-tool vibrations, robot dynamics and control, wheel shimmy, and human balancing. This AMR audio interview depicts a research and educational career grounded in a love for applied mathematics and a desire for industrial relevance. It tells of his experiences with mainstreaming the counterintuitive effects of time delay, navigating a developing historical and geopolitical context at the conclusion of the cold war, and inspiring new generations of engineers to integrate practice and theory.

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.
