About the Author

Y. P. Lu received his Mechanical Engineering degrees from the National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan in 1958, and from the University of Houston in Houston, Texas in 1964 and 1967. After receiving his doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, he spent his entire professional career at the David Taylor Research Center in Annapolis, Maryland as an engineer / scientist / technical manager until he retired in 1995. In the intervening years, he also taught at different times at the University of Maryland, the United States Naval Academy, the Catholic University of America, the National Taiwan University, and the National Taiwan Ocean University. He authored two books (both in English): a graduate level technical book entitled "Vibration Damping of Structural Elements" (1995) and a book entitled "Drifting Roots" (2012). While studying at the National Taiwan University in the mid 1950's, he was the captain of the University's varsity basketball team. He was also a member of Lan Sheng, a rather famous basketball team on the island of Taiwan in the 1950's. He and his wife Cecilia currently reside in Maryland.
