David Bogard has served with the faculty in the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin since 1982. He is currently the Associate Chair for Administration and Research for the department, and holds the Baker Hughes Incorporated Centennial Professorship in Mechanical Engineering. Prof. Bogard is a Fellow of the ASME, and has served the Society as conference session organizer/chair, vanguard chair, and tutorial chair for multiple conferences. He has also served the Society as an Associate Editor, and is currently Editor-in-Chief for the ASME Journal of Turbomachinery. Prof. Bogard has conducted research in gas turbine cooling for more than 35 years, and has more than 200 refereed publications in this area. He and his coauthors have been awarded three ASME Heat Transfer Committee Outstanding Paper awards. His research studies have focused on cooling of turbine components using sophisticated experimental models and computational simulations. He is particularly noted for the development of many designs for improving turbine film cooling, and the development of many new techniques for evaluating and quantifying film cooling performance.
