SV Doak Award

The 2012 Doak Prize for the most outstanding paper in the Journal of Sound and Vibration (JSV) was presented as part of the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The award is made in memory of Professor Philip Doak, one of the ISVR’s founding members, who was also the JSV’s founding editor.

Dr Brian Mann of Duke University in North Carolina and Dr Neil Sims of the University of Sheffield won this year's prize for their article Energy harvesting from the nonlinear oscillations of magnetic levitation (JSV 2009, Vol. 319 pp. 515 -530) which was judged to have made the greatest overall impact during the year.

Elsevier, the publisher of JSV, established the prize in 2012; the first award was given to Professor Neil Stephen from the University of Southampton.

JSV Editor-in-Chief Professor Matthew Cartmell from the University of Sheffield and Christopher Greenwell representing Elsevier made the presentation in the presence of Professor Jeremy Astley, Head of ISVR.
