Lynd Receives Outstanding Paper Award from Acoustical Society of America

Danielle Lynd, mechanical engineering student in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, received the Best Paper by a Young Presenter Award Third Prize from the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) at their 171st annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The award is open to any author 30 years or younger, determined from papers presented at each meeting of the ASA, The meetings occur twice each year.

Lynd is investigating adaptive, foldable acoustic structures for simple and significant sound energy-focusing in real-time via folding actions. These findings may be translated to strategies to design new classes of acoustic transducers, such as ultrasonic probes and microphone arrays that use straightforward folding motions in real time to beam sound, which contrasts to the costly and complex implementation of digitally-steered acoustic wave systems.

Danielle Lynd Wins ASA's Best Paper by a Young Presenter Third Prize AwardShe is a researcher in the Laboratory of Sound and Vibration Research (LSVR) at The Ohio State University.  The LSVR’s mission is to resolve long-standing problems and to create new opportunities for advancements in the fields of vibrations, acoustics, mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.  Lynd’s advisor is Assistant Professor Ryan Harne.

“It is a sign of clear, demonstrated capability for Danielle to receive this award from such a competitive field of researchers in ASA,” Harne commented.  “She has an evident potential for future accomplishments through the momentum developed by her research endeavors to date.”

ASA is an international scientific society dedicated to generating, disseminating and promoting the knowledge of acoustics and its practical applications.
