ByHaym Benaroya

Haym Benaroya is Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Rutgers University. He is also founder and director of the Center for Structures in Extreme Environments, a center focusing on the conceptualization and analysis of structures placed in challenging environments. We have considered offshore drilling structures, aircraft structures and luggage containers subjected to explosions, nanostructures and lunar surface structures for manned habitation. Professor Benaroya earned his BE degree from The Cooper Union in New York, and his MS and PhD (1981) from the University of Pennsylvania.
