Professor Philip L. Roe is the 2015 Fluid Dynamics Award recipient for his for outstanding contributions to the understanding of the behavior of liquids and gases in motion as related to need in aeronautics and astronautics. Roe received his award in the technical excellence category for seminal contributions to the design of numerical algorithms for simulations of compressible flows.

Roe has been a professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan since 1994, specializing in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics, and Electromagnetics. Roe recently covered the history of CFD from the earliest beginnings to the present day in a lecture titled, Colorful Fluid Dynamics. Read more about Prof. Roe.
