CVeSS researchers receive the GCMS Best Paper Award for their paper entitled “Simulation and Scale-testing to Improve the next Generation of Wave Adaptive Modular Vessels,” at the 2013 Summer Simulation Multiconference, held in Tronoto, Canada.
I'm thrilled to share the following news. Based on our nomination and an
open competition within the College of Engineering, Prof. Mehdi Ahmadian
of ME will become the Dan Pletta Professor at VT. This endowed
professorship honors Mehdi for his stellar scholarship over an
accomplished career at VT.
The final approval is given by the Board of Visitors, and that is
expected at the BoV meeting in March with the professorship effective
April 10, 2014.

The Center for Vehicle Systems and Safety (CVeSS) at Virginia Tech was established in 2004 by Dr. Mehdi Ahmadian, professor of Mechanical Engineering, and director of CVeSS. The center consists of six laboratories: The Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory (AVDL, established 1995), Vehicle Terrain Performance Laboratory (VTPL, established 2006), Performance Engineering and Research Laboratory (PERL, established 2006), Railway Technologies Laboratory (RTL, established 2004) and Intelligent Transportation Laboratory (ITL,established 2008). Computational Multiphysics Systems Laboratory(CMS) has joined CVeSS on 2011. The center is served by seven full-time faculty, more than twenty graduate students, a large number of undergraduate students and technical personnel. Several other Virginia Tech faculty members and visiting scholars are CVeSS affiliate faculty.
