Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, Paris, France

After being Researcher at ONERA, the aerospace research laboratory in France, Prof.  Roger Ohayon joined the Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers (CNAM/Structural Mechanics and Coupled Systems Research Laboratory) as Professor Chair of Mechanics where he is now Emeritus Professor. His expertise lies in Mechanical and Computational Modeling of Fluid-Structure and Structural Acoustics Interaction Problems and Smart Structural Systems. Roger Ohayon has pioneered the development of mechanical and computational methods for prediction of fluid-structure vibrations of coupled systems, mainly for liquid-propelled launch vehicles (sloshing and hydroelastic vibrations) including the POGO effects and also in structural acoustics of complex systems.  The methods developed by Roger Ohayon are not only research ideas but have effectively been applied in aerospace industry in France and in Europe. Roger Ohayon is the author/co-author of several books on Structural Acoustics and Vibration .
