Special:  Election of Professor Said Elghobashi to the National Academy of Engineering

February 6, 2014.  The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected 67 new members and 11 foreign associates. This brings the total U.S. membership to 2,250 and the number of foreign associates to 214.  Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."

Professor Elghobashi had been elected to the NAE for contributions to understanding and modeling of multiphase turbulent flows.
