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.”

The Journal of Energy Resources Technology disseminates technical information – peer-reviewed scholarly work, research papers, technical briefs, and feature articles – of permanent interest to the Journal's readership. Emphasis is given to extraction and conversion of chemical and thermal to electrical or mechanical forms of energy, including transportation energy requirements, petroleum engineering, natural/unconventional gas extraction technology, advanced power cycles, and the relationship between energy source and environment. A small number of published papers describe case histories, review of recent R&D advancements, or description of a methodology/industrial process. Discussion papers addressing energy policy or regulatory issues that affect energy resources and energy demand and supply chain are also published. Papers that do not include original work, but nonetheless present quality analysis or incremental improvement to past work may be published as technical briefs.
