Anthony Edward Perry 1937--2001 (2010)

unapi

Tony Perry was one of Australia's most outstanding researchers in fluid mechanics, particularly in the study of turbulent fluid motion. He was a gifted experimentalist who advanced the techniques of hot-wire anemometry and quantitative flow visualization to make measurements of unparalleled accuracy to answer fundamental scaling questions. He also made seminal theoretical contributions to the physical modelling of wall-bounded turbulence, and pioneered flow topology approaches for the classification and description of fluid motions. He was a gifted lecturer, devoted supervisor to twenty PhD students, and a passionate and enthusiastic influence on numerous colleagues around the world.
