UM Aerospace alum Dr. Meng-Sing Liou (MSAE ’75, Ph.D. ’77) passed on September 29, 2017. Dr. Meng-Sing Liou was a trailblazer in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and served as a Senior Technologist for NASA Glenn, one of the highest ranks given to researchers who have “significantly contributed to technological advances.”

According to NASA Glenn:

“Dr. Liou’s research was primarily in fields related to fluid dynamics including his master’s degree in biomechanics at National Taiwan University and followed by the Ph.D. study in gas dynamics at the University of Michigan; both heavily involved methods of asymptotic analysis. His career in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) flourished in the enriching environment of the NASA Glenn Research Center.”
