Dr. Dewey Hodges became Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech in 1986. From 1970–1986 he was a research scientist at the U.S. Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate, located at Ames Research Center. During those years he also served as a Lecturer at Stanford University and in 1984 was a guest research scientist at the DLR in Braunschweig, Germany. Dr. Hodges has published four books and over 330 technical papers in journals and conference proceedings in the fields of rotorcraft dynamics, structural dynamics, aeroelasticity, structural mechanics and stability, computational mechanics, and optimal control. He has advised 28 PhD graduates and 34 MS graduates in his 25 years at Georgia Tech. He is an elected Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the American Helicopter Society and the American Academy of Mechanics. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He serves on the editorial boards for the Journal of Fluids and Structures, the Journal of Mechanics of Materials and Structures, and Nonlinear Dynamics. He has served on the AHS Dynamics Committee and the AIAA Structural Dynamics Technical Committee, as chairman of the Stability Committee of the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Division, as an Associate Editor ofAIAA Journal, of Vertica, and of the ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics, and on the Editorial Boards of the International Journal of Solids and Structures and the International Journal for Engineering Analysis and Design.
