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 Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics provides a medium for rapid dissemination of original research results in theoretical as well as applied computational and nonlinear dynamics. The journal serves as a forum for the exchange of new ideas and applications in computational, rigid, and flexible multi-body system dynamics and all aspects (analytical, numerical, and experimental) of dynamics associated with nonlinear systems. The broad scope of the journal encompasses all computational and nonlinear problems occurring in aeronautical, biological, electrical, mechanical, physical, and structural systems.
