ASCE Honors Professor Song for Aerospace Service


Toby Weber

Cullen College Professor of Mechanical Engineering Gangbing Song has been named the recipient of the 2012 Outstanding Professional Service Award from the Aerospace Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The award is intended to honor an individual who has improved the conditions under which civil engineers “advance aerospace sciences and technology and space exploration and construction.”

Song’s contributions in this arena revolve primarily around his work as an organizer of the Aerospace Division’s biennial Earth and Space Conference. He organized conference sessions in 2002 and 2004, symposiums in 2006 and 2008, and served as general chair of the conference in 2010. He is also head of the division’s dynamics and control committee.

Song will receive the award at the Earth and Space 2012 Conference, set to take place in Pasadena, Calif., in April.

This is the second time Song has been honored by the Aerospace Division in recent years. In 2007, he received the division’s Outstanding Technical Contributions Award in recognition of his work on vibration control and correction of thermal deformation for aerospace structures, such as satellites that utilize solar panels and antennas.

“I’ve benefitted greatly from my involvement in the ASCE Aerospace Division. I’m glad to be able to give back to the division through my involvement in the conference and the dynamics and controls committee and am honored that the division has chosen to recognize my contributions,” said Song.
