Dr. Roshko is known for his contributions to gas dynamics. He along with Hans Wolfgang Liepmann is the authors of the widely used textbook "Elements of Gasdynamics". He has made research contributions to problems of separated flow; bluff-body aerodynamics; structure of turbulent shear flow.
He completed his undergraduate education at the University of Alberta with a B.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics, in 1945, received the M.Sc. degree from Caltech in 1947 and the Ph.D. in 1952. Most of his academic career has been at Caltech, where he is now Theodore von Karman Professor of Aeronautics, Emeritus. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering; a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the American Physical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and an Honorary Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences. Roshko received Fluid Dynamics Prize by the American Physical Society (APS) in 1987.
