Engineering professor named fellow of ASME

Author: Megan Connelly


Patrick F. Dunn, professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been named a fellow of the American Society of Engineers (ASME).p. Fellow is the highest elected grade of membership in ASME and is conferred upon a member with at least 10 years of active engineering practice who has made significant contributions in the field. Dunn is the seventh member of Notre Dames aerospace and mechanical engineering faculty to be named a fellow. The others are: Hafiz M. Atassi, Frank P. Incropera, Thomas J. Mueller, John E. Renaud, Albin A. Szewczyk and Kwang-Tzu Yang.p. Dunn is a graduate of Purdue University, where he also earned his doctorate in aerospace engineering and fluid mechanics in 1974. After receiving his degrees, he taught at both Purdue and Duke Universities and in 1978 joined the engineering division of the Argonne National Library.p. A member of the Notre Dame faculty since 1985, Dunn served from 1998 to 2002 as director of the University’s Hessert Laboratory for Aerospace Research, and in 1999 served as director of the College of Engineerings London Program. His research at Notre Dame has focused on the dynamics of aerosol formation, transportation and deposition.p. Dunn is the author of “Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science” and “Uncertainty Analysis for Forensic Science” and he has published more than 125 papers on micro-particle interaction, fluid dynamics and other topics. Founded in 1880, ASME is a 120,000-member professional organization focused on technical, educational and research issues of the engineering and technology community. ASME conducts one of the world’s largest technical publishing operations, holds numerous technical conferences worldwide, and offers hundreds of professional development courses each year. ASME sets internationally recognized industrial and manufacturing codes and standards that enhance public safety.
