Lorrie’s accomplishments are too long to list, but here are two BIGGIES:

  1.   Lorrie has been a fantastic collaborator and communicator who has shared his wisdom and experiences worldwide for the solution of structural integrity problems in airframes and aerospace systems;
  2.   Over the last 15 years, Lorrie has utilized his and his organization’s experiences in component testing to clearly identify the importance of statistically characterizing material and aging damage on the life of aircraft structures.  He has brought new knowledge to the international community for methods that characterize and model material damage during early growth under fatigue loading; and as a result has successfully tied the durability approach to the damage tolerant approach for protecting aircraft structural integrity.
