Considered one of the most successful multiphysics researchers, Adel Razek’s modeling and design tools are responsible for making commercial energy conversion devices more efficient and reliable. He was among the first to develop coupled electromagnetic and circuit analysis and further developed the multiphysics field by adding coupled thermal and mechanical analysis. His work has led to the better understanding of electromagnetics in electrical machinery and electromagnetic devices and has allowed engineers and scientists to achieve higher accuracy in determining the different variables governing the operation of industrial systems and to account for realistic system operation. Other areas impacted by Razek’s work include traction in electric vehicle drives, electromagnetic compatibility, nondestructive testing, smart material actuation, robotics, and biomedicine.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Razek is senior research director (emeritus) and professor (honorary) with the National Center for Scientific Research and Centralesupelec, Gif Sur Yvette, France.
