Myklestad award for Parker.

Robert Parker, the L.S. Randolph professor of mechanical engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, has been named the recipient of the 2015 ASME Award for innovative contributions to vibration engineering and research. The award was presented Aug. 3 at the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences in Boston, where Parker, an ASME Fellow, also gave the Myklestad Plenary Lecture. Parker, who is recognized as an expert on the vibration of high-speed power transmissions such as geared and belt-pulley systems, recently received the 2015 Doak Prize from the Journal of Sound and Vibration for his research on instabilities in high-speed planetary gears inside airplane engines.
