The Irony of Life and Professor and Hero Liviu Librescu

The Irony of Life!  On the International Holocaust Memorial Day, Monday Professor Librescu leaped between the South Korean gunner and his Students to save their lives.  This after he received an award after working with South Korean Engineers.

Dr. Liviu Librescu
ESM Professor Liviu Librescu, ESM Researcher Zhanming Qin, and their collaborators from South Korea recently received a Scholarship Award at the 17th International Conference on Adaptive Structures and Technologies (ICAST 2006) that was held in Taipei. Dr. Librescu's research continues to be internationally recognized. His paper "Dynamic response of anisotropic sandwich flat panels to explosive pressure pulses" that was published in Volume 31 of the International Journal of Impact Engineering in May 2005 (with T. Hause) rates among the "Top 25" most downloaded articles for that journal.
ESM is very pleased to house faculty of high caliber and international recognition who make important contributions to the understanding of scientific and engineering problems.
