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 ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics publishes research contributions to the fundamental theory, algorithms, design, manufacture and experimental validation for mechanisms and robots. The current scope of the journal includes topics in theoretical and applied kinematics, mechanism synthesis and design, analysis and design of robot manipulators, hands, and legs, soft robotics, compliant mechanisms, origami and folded robots, printed robots, and haptic devices. The journal is also interested in novel fabrication, actuation and control techniques for mechanisms and robotics, bio-inspired approaches to mechanism and robot design, and the mechanics and design of micro- and nano-scale devices.
