Sylwia Horning

This award is given to the best new presenter from the SAE 2012 Brake Colloquium. To be considered, the recipient should have presented less than three presentations at the SAE Brake Colloquium. Recipient: Sylwia Hornig, Technische Universitat Berlin

Sylwia A. Hornig was born in 1978 in Gdansk/Poland, grew up in the US and later in Germany. She studied Physical Engineering at the Technical University of Berlin with emphasis on Machine Dynamics, Acoustics and Fluid Mechanics. In 2005 she received her engineering diploma with summa cum laude. Between 2005 and 2007 Sylwia worked at AIRBUS located in Bremen/Germany as a research engineer. She developed and coordinated dynamic fatigue strength measurement methods of metallic, CFRP and sandwich airplane components for sonic fatigue certification procedures. Since 2007 she is part of the research group at the Chair of Mechatronics and Machine Dynamics around Prof. von Wagner at the Technical University of Berlin. Her main focus is the development of measurement and identification methods of dynamic material properties specifically for friction material characterization for development and NVH simulation purposes. As a member of the European Expert Group Simulation Brake Noise (EKS) Sylwia interfaces between scientific developments at the university and the automotive brake industry. Additionally she teaches, provides training courses on measurement methods to analyze mechanical vibrations and is finishing her doctor's degree.

Peter Hagedorn Peter Hagedorn, Technical Univ of Darmstadt

Peter Hagedorn was born in Berlin, Germany. He grew up in Brazil, where he graduated (Engineer's degree) in in mechanical engineering in 1964 at EPUSP and in 1966 earned his doctoral degree at the same University. He then worked as a research assistant and later as 'dozent' (lecturer) at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. In 1971 he got his 'habilitation' (similar to Dr. Sc.) at Karlsruhe. From 1973 to 1974 he was a visiting Research Fellow at the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University. Since October 1974 he is full professor of mechanics at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and head of the Dynamics and Vibrations group. He also has served as visiting professor at Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Berkeley, Paris, Irbid (Jordan) and Christchurch (New Zealand), where he also holds an Adjunct Professorship at UC. He has served as Head of Department and Vice-President to his home University in Darmstadt and he is serving in a number of professional and editorial committees. He is author of over 200 papers and several books on a variety of topics in the general field of dynamics, vibrations and analytical mechanics. He is officially retired since 2009 but still quite active and heads the Dynamics and Vibrations Group at the Chair of Numerical Methods in Mechanical Engineering in the Graduate School of Computational Engineering at TU Darmstadt. Among a number of other awards he received the first CAPES-Humboldt Senior Scientist Award and the 2013 ASME J.P. Den Hartog Award.
