I WAS EDUCATED USING HIS WORKS

Warren Max Rohsenow
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, U.S.A.
Warren Max Rohsenow was an active member of the MIT faculty from 1946 to 1985. As a researcher, educator and leader, Professor Rohsenow made outstanding and lasting contributions to the engineering profession in general and thermal power systems in particular. His fundamental and applied research in nearly all modes of heat transfer is highly respected throughout the world and underpins many modern developments in the thermal power industry. His seminal work on gas turbines, heat exchangers, heat transfer in nuclear reactors and condensation in cooling towers are landmarks in the development of this field. He made pioneering contributions to the understanding of dispersed flow film boiling, condensation, metal-to-metal contact resistance and two-phase flows. His contributions to the thermal power industry began early in his career. After writing one of the first gas turbine theses, Rohsenow was assigned to the U.S. Navy Engineering Experimental Station (Annapolis, MD) to develop temperature instrumentation for the first gas turbine tested in the United States. His thesis investigated the effect of water injection on gas turbine performance, an idea that was incorporated in an operational plant about 40 years later by designers unaware of Rohsenow's early work. In addition to serving in the U.S. Navy (1944-46), he was a consultant to the National Defense Research Council/Columbia University group on aircraft component design from 1943-44.
