UTSA engineering college hosts lecture on fuel cells

(March 29, 2005)--Ramesh Shah, an expert on fuel cell technology, will lecture at UTSA on "Fuel Cell Technology- A Myth or Reality" at 7:15 p.m. Thursday, March 31 in Engineering Building Room 2.04.06 on the 1604 Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Fuel cell technology, an emerging alternative to oil and gas as the source for electric power generation, improves efficiency and reduces ozone emissions. Most fuel-cell devices generate electricity by a chemical reaction involving fuels such as hydrogen and oxygen.

Shah, a research professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, has more than 30 years experience in design, analysis and test simulation of compact heat exchangers and thermal systems. He has served on seven international journal editorial advisory boards and has published 19 books and more than 100 papers.

He received doctoral and master's degrees in mechanical engineering from Stanford University and a bachelor's degree from Gujarat University in India.

The lecture is sponsored by the UTSA College of Engineering and the San Antonio section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
