environment. Dr. Zheng has been a long time member of NCAD and FED and an active participant in this technical committee. The committee also sponsored three symposia with a total of fourteen papers presented. Planned Activities for 2011:
In 2011, the Aero/Hydro Acoustic technical committee is sponsoring several sessions, including Sound Propagation in Fluids and Noise Control in Energy Systems, Turbomachinery Noise, Flow‐Induced Noise and Vibration, and Vibration and Acoustic Measurement Techniques and Facilities.
Dr. Kristin Cody is the Lead Engineer for Hydroacoustics for the Bechtel Marine Propulsion Company, which operates the Bettis and Knolls Atomic Power Laboratories for the Department of Energy. She received her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University, M.S. in M.E. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Ph.D. in Acoustics from Penn State University. Her research interests include flow‐induced noise and vibration and structural‐acoustic interactions.
If you’d like to become involved with any of these committees, including helping to plan future meetings, please contact the Technical chair that best suits your interest.
Executive Committee Members The activities of the division are directed by an Executive Committee, which establishes the Division's policy and goals. The Executive Committee is supported by other committees as needed.
The committee members for 2010 – 2011 are: Jeffery Vipperman, University of Pittsburgh, Chair
