Aerospace engineering professor named American Society of Mechanical Engineers fellow
Roy Hartfield, the Walt and Virginia Woltosz professor of aerospace engineering, was recently named a fellow by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or ASME.
Hartfield was recognized by ASME for his excellent performance and contribution to the mechanical engineering field, especially in the categories of education, research and development, product development and design. While part of the Auburn faculty, Hartfield has developed analysis and design tools for aircraft aerodynamics, propulsion, flight mechanics and optimization in support of the development of aerospace systems and products.
“The ASME reports that the rank of fellow is awarded to those with exceptional engineering achievements and contributions to the engineering profession and to ASME,” Hartfield said. “There are 3,427 fellows out of 74,788 members. I am most gratified to have been chosen to be a part of this select group.”
