Clark School Dean Darryll Pines and his former student advisee Ashish Purekar (B.S. '97, M.S. '00 and Ph.D. '06, aerospace engineering) will receive a best paper award in structural dynamics and control from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for "Damage Detection in Thin Composite Laminates Using Piezoelectric Phased Sensor Arrays and Guided Lamb Wave Interrogation," which was published in the Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures in July of 2010.

The work is derived from Purekar's Ph.D. thesis. He now works at TechnoSciences Corp., a Clark School spinoff company.

The award will be presented at the ASME Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems Conference in September.
