UI Engineering Professor Named ASME Fellow

Jeffrey Marshall, professor and departmental executive officer in the University of Iowa College of Engineering Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and faculty research engineer at IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering, has been elected a Fellow of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers).

Marshall, who is also a professor in The Program in Applied Mathematical and Computational Sciences of the UI Graduate College, is recognized for his research in fluid mechanics and aerodynamics.

His current research interests include vortex-structure interaction, vortex turbulence, fluid interfacial dynamics, particulate and bubbly flows, and Lagrangian computational methods.

Marshall, who joined the UI faculty in 1993, received his bachelor's and master's degrees from UCLA in 1983 and 1984, respectively, and his doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University of California-Berkeley in 1987. In addition to ASME, his scientific and professional memberships include the American Physical Society and the American Academy of Mechanics.

He is currently serving as an associate editor of the ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering. Marshall authored a graduate textbook on inviscid fluid flows and vortex dynamics, which is used at several leading U.S. universities ("Inviscid Incompressible Flow," John Wiley & Sons, 2001). He currently performs research on vortex-structure interaction and thin film flows under support from the U.S. Navy, NASA, and the Hitachi Corporation.

ASME is a 120,000-member organization focused on technical, educational and research issues. The organization conducts one of the world's largest technical publishing operations, holds numerous technical conferences worldwide, and offers hundreds of professional development courses each year. ASME sets internationally recognized industrial and manufacturing codes and standards that enhance public safety.
