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
Most Accessed Article in 2017


The Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power publishes archival-quality papers in the broad technical areas of gas and steam turbines, internal combustion engines, and power generation. It covers the specific technical areas described in the SCOPE section below.
Archival papers for this journal must not only be clearly written and demonstrated to be technically correct, but must also present new, previously unknown findings that are interesting, have lasting value for referencing and educating future generations, and have a relevant engineering application for the technical areas of the journal. "Application" means demonstrating that the innovations or ideas, the computational and/or experimental results, the modeling and analyses of systems, components or processes are useful to improve understanding and advance the state-of-the-art. Emphasis should be on demonstrated engineering relevance. This can take the form of new technologies, processes, concepts, theories, ideas, analyses and experiments that improve engineering designs, clarify understanding of technical issues facing the community, explain previously unexplained phenomena, and/or change the way we think.
We also welcome interesting technology review papers and discussions of published papers. The submission of papers that are only of mathematical interest with just a cursory relevance to engineering are discouraged.
