Search - List of Books by Octave Levenspiel

Octave Levenspiel is an Emeritus professor of chemical engineering at Oregon State University. His principal interest has been chemical reaction engineering, a branch of chemical engineering studying the application of chemical reaction kinetics and physics to the design of chemical reactors.

He was born in Shanghai, China, in 1926, where he attended a German grade school, an English high school and a French university. He studied at U. C. Berkeley and at Oregon State University where he received a Ph.D. in 1952.

He is the originator of the Octave Levenspiel's fountain, which is a special kind of a diffusion machine.

Professor Octave Levenspiel was well known among his students for his ability to do quick back-of-the-envelope-calculations. GNU Octave, a high-level language primarily intended for numerical computations and developed by John W. Eaton, a former student of Octave Levenspiel, is named after him.
