The Ascher H. Shapiro Lecture

In Fluid Mechanics

 

The Ascher H. Shapiro Lecture in Fluid Mechanics, was established in 1992 with the goal of bringing internationally-recognized leaders in the area of fluid mechanics to MIT.  The lecture series honors the many contributions made in the area of fluid mechanics by Ascher Shapiro.  Previous lecture in the series:
