Dr Waldemar “Waldek” Bujalski, who has been very well known in the fluid mixing community, has recently passed away. He died peacefully in hospital surrounded by his family on the 30th of January 2013 of pleural mesothelioma. Many FMP Members are familiar with his work and knew him personally. Dr Bujalski was Head of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells and manager of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Project and a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham in the UK. He graduated from Technical University of Sczcecin in Poland in 1977 with a degree in chemical engineering and then obtained a PhD in Fluid Mixing in 1987 from the University of Birmingham, where he worked with Prof. Alvin Nienow. He had more than 30 years’ experience in single and multi-phase mixing in stirred vessels for a variety of applications including reactors and bioreactors in chemical, pharmaceutical and process industries. His interests included fuel and hydrogen cells, CFD simulations, laser-based measurement techniques for fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer and fermentation technology. ...
