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 Solar Energy Engineering - Including Wind Energy and Building Energy Conservation - publishes research papers that contain original work of permanent interest in all areas of solar energy and energy conservation, as well as discussions of policy and regulatory issues that affect renewable energy technologies and their implementation. Papers that do not include original work, but nonetheless present quality analysis or incremental improvements to past work may be published as Technical Briefs. Review papers are accepted but should be discussed with the Editor prior to submission. The Journal also publishes a section called Solar Scenery that features photographs or graphical displays of significant new installations or research facilities.
