The “smart skin” technology of Chih-Ming Ho is among those in “microelectricalmechanical systems” that can impact defense and commercial applications.
Professor Chih-Ming Ho of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department has been named as the first recipient of the Ben Lockheed Martin Endowed Chair of Advanced Aerospace Technologies.
Chih-Ming Ho was among 85 engineers nationwide that were elected into the Academy for his “contributions to the understanding and control of turbulent flows.”
UCLA researcher are creating a world of micromachines for a wide array of applications from bug-like robots to drag reduction on aircraft wings.
Professors Chih-Ming Ho and Yu-chong Tai have developed silicon microflaps for aircraft control and drag reduction on aircraft wings.
