Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Fluid mechanics

Mechanical engineer Richard J. Goldstein studied fluid mechanics and experimental methods in heat transfer, and developed a new method to measure heat transfer. He did important research in laser Doppler velocimetry, the reference beam system, separated flows, wall jet phenomena, and laminar and turbulent flow measurements. His work in the development of film cooling systems has had practical applications in the design of high performance gas turbines.
