Professor Peretz P. Friedmann, the François-Xavier Bagnoud Professor at the University of Michigan, is this year’s honored recipient of the Dr. Alexander Klemin Award, the highest honor the AHS International bestows on an individual for notable achievement in advancing the field of vertical flight aeronautics.

In a career that spans 45 years, Friedmann has made outstanding and lasting original contributions to rotary-wing aeroelasticity, on-blade control of vibration and noise, optimum design of low vibration helicopter rotors, rotorcraft aeromechanics and unsteady aerodynamics. These contributions have advanced the understanding of rotorcraft aeromechanical behavior and have had a major impact on modern helicopter design.
