About the Author

Thomas J. Hanratty is Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and was a leader in establishing industrially important multiphase flow as a new academic discipline, by relating macroscopic behaviour to small scale interactions. His research has been recognised by nine awards from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the American Society for Engineering Education, Ohio State University, Villanova University and the University of Illinois. He was the inaugural winner of the International Multiphase Flow Prize. Hanratty was named as one of the influential chemical engineers of the modern era at the AIChE centennial Celebration in 2008. He has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
