AnalySwift Announces Addition of Dr. Dewey Hodges as Senior Advisor
AnalySwift is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Dewey Hodges as Senior Advisor to AnalySwift. Dr. Hodges is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. According to the Aerospace Engineering news at Georgia Tech, “A well-accomplished thought-leader, nationally and internationally, Prof. Hodges has advanced the state-of-the-art of analytical and computational methods in structural dynamics and aeroelasticity for over four decades.” Dr. Dewey Hodges received his PhD in 1973, Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University. Prior to joining Georgia Tech, Prof. Hodges was research scientist at the U.S. Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate at Ames Research Center for 16 years. Since joining Georgia Tech in 1986 he has been the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on over 43 externally sponsored research projects with expenditures in excess of $9 million in the fields of aeroelasticity, structural mechanics, rotorcraft dynamics, finite element analysis, and computational optimal control. In recent years his research group has been developing methods for accurate analysis and stress recovery in composite beams (including helicopter and wind turbine rotor blades), plates, and shells. The computer programs VABS (for composite beams) and VAPAS (for composite plates and shells) are in use around the world. He has published three books and over 175 technical papers in refereed journals. He has advised 27 PhD and 32 MS graduates. Prof. Hodges is a Fellow of the American Helicopter Society, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the American Academy of Mechanics. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He is on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Fluids and Structures and the Journal of Mechanics of Materials and Structures. He was previously on the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Solids and Structures and has served as an Associate Editor of the ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics, AIAA Journal and Vertica. He has served multiple terms on the AHS Dynamics Committee and the AIAA Structural Dynamics Technical Committee.
