Professor Pier Marzocca
Clarkson University’s Professor Pier Marzocca, of the Department of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering, has been appointed deputy editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences (IJASS). This is an international journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences (KSAS), http://ijass.org/.
The journal aims to enhance and foster the aeronautical and space sciences and technologies through the publication of original research papers, review articles, and short communications disclosing new advancements in theoretical, computational and /or experimental research. IJASS also addresses the ground and flight tests of aerospace systems including aircraft, air ship, helicopter, MEMS, missile, satellite, rocket, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Marzocca is handling submitted and invited research review papers, and is the primary coordinator for journal activities in the United States.
Professor Marzocca’s research interests lie in aeronautics and applied energy. His expertise is in structural dynamics and controls of advanced aerospace and wind energy systems, including active flow and aeroelastic controls of flexible structures, and unmanned aerial vehicle systems. His research has been published in 80 peer-reviewed publications and he has delivered more than 150 conference and invited presentations. In addition, Marzocca has been the recipient or co-recipient of over $6.5 million in research funding from industry, government and non-profit agencies.
Clarkson University to Install a Blade Test Facility
Clarkson University, with sponsorship from the Center for Evaluation of Clean Energy Technology – funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, is in the process of installing a Wind Turbine Blade Test Facility. Professor Pier Marzocca (of Clarkson’s Department of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering) and Professor and Executive Officer Kerop Janoyan (of Clarkson’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering) serve as Co-Directors for the new facility. Other collaborators include Professor Ajit Achuthan (of Clarkson’s Department of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering) and Professor Levon Minnetyan (of Clarkson’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering).
