In Honor of Stuart W. Churchill II (Invited Talks)

Seider, W., University of Pennsylvania
Lederman, P., Peter Lederman & Associates

These two sessions celebrate the impact of Stuart Churchill on the chemical engineering profession. He began teaching in 1950 while completing his Ph.D. research, was promoted to Full Professor in 1957, and contributed mightily to heat transfer and combustion research, while leading our profession and his universities in many ways. Dr. Stuart W. Churchill, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania and former University of Michigan faculty member, passed away on March 24, 2016 at the age of 95. Stuart was a leader in the fields of combustion, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics for over half a century. He was a pioneer in the use of computers for modeling chemical and thermal processes and in the development of comprehensive correlating equations based on asymptotic solutions. He published six books and authored over 300 papers, 110 of which were after he retired in 1990. Stuart was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering in 1974, and in 2002, he won the NAE Founders Award for “outstanding leadership in research, education, and professional service, and for continuing contributions in combustion, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics for over a half a century.” Through the decades of scholarly mentorship of colleagues and students on matters of science and technology, Stuart also enjoyed a fruitful life in his love of music, art, literature, nature, travel, fine food and wine, sports, and verbose political discussions.
