Paulsen Publishes on Beam Structure Analysis
Congratulations to Dr. William Paulsen, professor of mathematics, whose recent paper will be published in the peer-reviewed Ramanujan Journal. The paper, "Analyzing Non-Collinearly Coupled Timoshenko Beams via the Exterior Matrix Method," is particularly important because it extends his exterior matrix method to be able to detect the motion of a vibration within a beam structure by observing the effect of adding a damper.
