George S. Dulikravich

Florida International University, USA

Professor George S. Dulikravich has a diverse educational background in mechanical and aerospace engineering including private (Ph.D.-Cornell’79), public (M.Sc.-Minnesota’75) and international (Dipl.Ing.-Belgrade’73) schooling, three years of visiting research and teaching experience both domestic (NASA) and international (DFVLR), thirty years of teaching and research experience at four universities (UT-Austin, Penn State, UT-Arlington, FIU). His research expertise is highly multi-disciplinary spanning the fields of aerospace, mechanical, industrial, engineering mechanics, materials engineering, biomedical and chemical engineering. Some of the research topics include: the development of inverse design algorithms; multi-objective hybrid constrained evolutionary design optimization algorithms; acceleration of iterative algorithms; and electro-magneto-hydro-dynamics algorithms; multi-objective optimization and inverse design of chemical compositions of alloys; thermo-elasticity analysis and inverse problems; inverse design and optimization of transonic and hypersonic flight vehicle shapes; and constrained design optimization of chemical formulas for functional molecules. This multi-disciplinary research has resulted in over 400 technical publications. Professor Dulikravich is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the international journal Inverse Problems in Science and Engineering and an Associate Editor of seven other journals. He is also the founder of ICIDES and IPDO sequences of international conferences on inverse design and optimization. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM), a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
