Dr. Langston Pens Guest Columns Dr. Lee S. Langston, professor emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, recently published columns in Global Gas Turbine News and ASME’s Mechanical Engineering on the topics of bird strikes and Pratt & Whitney’s revolutionary new geared turbofan. Before joining academia, Dr. Langston worked at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft in East Hartford, CT conducting research and development on jet engine gas turbines, fuel cells, and heat pipes. His research involves experimental and analytical studies of fluid flows and heat transfer, both in general and with specific application to turbomachines. Much of his research has been concentrated in the area of turbine endwall aerodynamics. He has served as Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Turbomachinery and Editor in Chief for the ASME Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power. He continues to write extensively on the gas turbine industry.
