JALURIA Yogesh Jaluria received his B. S. degree from
the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, in 1970,
standing first in his class. He then received his M.
S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from
Cornell University in 1972 and 1974, respectfully.
Since 1980 he has been in the Department of Mechanical
and Aerospace Engineering at Rutgers, the State
University of New Jersey and currently holds the
position of Board of Governors Professor. Prior to
this, he worked at the Indian Institute of Technology,
Kanpur, from '76-'80. Before that, he was at AT&T
Bell Laboratories from '74-'76.
For over 25
years, Professor Jaluria has been an active researcher
in fluids and thermal engineering. He has made
pioneering and lasting contributions in a wide variety
of fundamental and applied areas, such as materials
processing, enclosure fires, computational heat
transfer, natural and mixed convection transport,
environmental flows, and optimization of thermal
systems. The National Science Foundation, the National
Institute of Standards and Technology and other
Federal and State funding agencies have extensively
supported his work. In addition, industry has been a
vital supporter as well.
Jaluria has contributed more than 350 technical
articles, including over 145 in archival journals and
15 chapters in books. He has two patents in materials
processing and some of his computer software has been
copyrighted. He is the author/co-author of six books.
As the sole author he has written a graduate level
book Natural Convection Heat And Mass Transfer, an
undergraduate textbook Computer Methods For
Engineering, and an undergraduate textbook Design And
0ptimization Of Thermal Systems. All these books have
received outstanding reviews and his two books on
Natural Convection have been translated into Russian.
Professor Jaluria is also a co-editor of thirteen
conference proceedings and two special issues of
Professor Jaluria has been
recognized for his outstanding work, through many
different awards. He received the 1995 Heat Transfer
Memorial Award for significant research contributions
to the science of heat transfer, the 1999 Worcester
Reed Warner Medal for outstanding contributions to the
permanent literature of engineering and the 2000
Freeman Scholar award for fluid flow phenomena in
materials processing. The American Society of
Mechanical Engineers (ASME) bestowed all these to him.
He also received the 1994 Distinguished Alumni Award
from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.
