Prof. Tom I-P. Shih

Title: Challenges in Designing Gas-Turbine Cooling Systems



Tom I-P. Shih is The J. William Uhrig and Anastasia Vournas Head and Professor of the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University.  Previously, he was Professor and Head of the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University (2003-09).  Also, he has served as a faculty member at Michigan State University (1998-2003), Carnegie Mellon University (1988-98), and the University of Florida (1983-88) and was a mechanical engineer at NASA Lewis (now Glenn) Research (1981-82).  He started his undergraduate education at West Virginia University, but completed his BS degree at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan.  His MS and PhD degrees are from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.  His research interests are in CFD/HT, turbine cooling, aircraft icing, and control of shock-wave/boundary-layer interactions.  He is a Fellow of ASME and AIAA and received AIAA’s Energy Systems Award.  Recently in 2014, he and Vigor Yang co-edited a book on gas turbines, entitled: Turbine Aerodynamics, Heat Transfer, Materials, and Mechanics that appeared as Vol 243 in AIAA’s Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics that brings together aerothermal with mechanics, materials, and seals for turbine cooling.
