Itzhak Green

Professor; School of Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Green’s research has been conducted under industrial and government sponsorship. His work broadly supports the field of design, rotordynamics, and tribology. The calculation of stiffness of bolted joints has become standard in classical design textbooks*. In 2006 he received the ASME highest honor, the Machine Design Award. His work on the dynamic behavior of mechanical seals operating in liquid or gas (again award winning) has been implemented into various computer codes which have been acquired by seals manufacturers, users, and research labs. For two decades he taught two continuing education courses: (1) The “Mechanical Engineering Professional Engineering Refresher,” and (2) with colleagues from BHRG, he taught and administered the course “Fluid Sealing Technology.” He served on numerous editorial boards, served on the STLE Board of Directors, and chaired two terms the Executive Committee of the ASME, Tribology Division.
