Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer (FHMT) 5 - 9 (2014)


On April 26, 2014, the aerospace power, thermal management and energy conversion community lost a very dear colleague, Dr. Edward Thomas (Tom) Mahefkey.  He passed away in Flowery Branch, Georgia at the age of 73.  Tom received his BS degree in 1961 from St. Louis University; an MS in Physics in 1970 and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 1977, both from University of Dayton. After 33 years as a project engineer, scientist and advanced development program manager, Tom retired from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in 1995 at the level of Deputy Division Chief for Technology of the Propulsion Laboratory’s Aerospace Power Division. He was internationally recognized in the fields of heat transfer and energy conversion.  He had over 50 journal or symposium papers, including three best paper awards from AIAA and ASME.  He also authored numerous technical reports on aircraft and spacecraft heat transfer and energy conversion applications and held of eight US patents.
