Kemo Hanjali� is Professor Emeritus at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. He has published extensively on the measurement, modelling and simulation of turbulence including heat transfer, combustion and magneto-fluid-dynamics. He is widely recognised as a major contributor to the development of mathematical models of turbulence and served for a decade as chairman of ERCOFTAC's special-interest group on turbulence modelling.
