Corke Receives ND Research Award

On May 22, during the annual Presidentís Dinner, the University presented Thomas C. Corke, the Clark Equipment Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, with the 2007 Research Achievement Award. Corke, the founding director of the Center for Flow Physics and Control, was recognized for his significant contributions to the study and understanding of fluid mechanics, which have resulted in more than $8 million in research funding and significant collaborations with industrial partners.

Corke joined the University in 1999. He holds two patents and has been twice honored with the NASA Achievement Award. A fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, his most recent book, Design of Aircraft, is the capstone design text for 12 aerospace departments across the country.
