Strazisar Welcomed into Technical Society Fellowship

Dr. Anthony J. Strazisar, one of 12 senior scientists at NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, has been elected Fellow of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). The honor symbolizes exceptional engineering achievements and contributions to the engineering profession.

Strazisar, who resides in Chesterland, Ohio, is internationally known for his research in gas turbine engine fluid dynamics, particularly his ground-breaking laser anemometer studies of transonic fan aerodynamics. He has also been a substantive and effective contributor to ASME activities and a mentor to young engineers.

"Dr. Strazisar's career demonstrates the high caliber of our Center's research capabilities," said Glenn Center Director Donald J. Campbell. "He should be applauded not only for having obtained the highest rank that a technical society can bestow upon an individual, but for his pioneering contributions to the aeroengine turbomachinery field as well."

Criteria for selection as Fellow are rigorous, including: significant achievements in one's field; contributions to societies and their related professions; authoring or contributing to technical publications or reports; and developing patents and inventions.
