Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Emeritus Simon Ostrach
50 minutes, 09 seconds

Recognized by NASA as a giant in heat transfer research, Prof. Simon Ostrach received the inaugural ASME Heat Transfer Division Memorial Award in 1975 and attained membership in the National Academy of Engineering in 1978 for his fundamental discoveries in the field of buoyancy-driven convection. This AMR audio interview paints a remarkable picture of six decades of intellectual leadership and advocacy, including his work as principal investigator on two NASA Spacelab missions in 1992 and 1995 that investigated surface-tension driven convection under microgravity conditions, his commitment to the rigorous integration of research and design, and his, at one time, insatiable appetite for the thrills of weightless flight on the NASA “Vomit Comet.”

About This Journal

The ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications focuses on the dissemination of information of permanent interest in applied thermal sciences and engineering and is intended to be complementary to the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer, which focuses on fundamental research. Contributions must have clear relevancy to an industry, an industrial process, or a device. While the processes and phenomena discussed may be complex, the results must have a relatively straightforward or feasible path to application. Subject areas could be as narrow as a particular phenomenon or device or as broad as a system. Papers are sought that have long-term relevance to specific applications including: original research of an applied nature; application of thermal sciences to processes or systems; technology reviews; and identification of research needs to solve industrial problems at all time and length scales. Contributions should describe research in applied areas pertaining to thermal energy transport in equipment and devices, thermal and chemical systems, and thermodynamic processes, with an emphasis on application of the fundamentals to the solution of problems faced by industry.
