IN MEMORIAM DR. NOVAK ZUBER (1922-2013)

ABSTRACT
Dr. Novak Zuber, a pioneer in two-phase flow and heat transfer, was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, on December 4, 1922. Prior to his immigration to the United States, Dr. Zuber was a member of the Royal Yugoslavian Air Force (1944-1945) during World War II and attended the University of Rome in Italy (1945-1947). In 1947 until 1949, he became a merchant seaman. Dr. Zuber's intense desire to peruse his scholastic dreams prompted him to jump ship during a seaman tour that skirted close to the United States. He found his way to the University of California at Los Angeles and was able to enroll in their mechanical engineering program. In order to complete his education, he performed odd jobs such as washing dishes, washing cars or gardening. Basically, jobs that did not require a "Green Card". Immigration finally caught up with Novak during grad school. However, by that time, he had impressed the people at UCLA, that they came to his rescue and he was able to complete his degree program, including the B. Sc., M. Sc., and Ph. D. His doctoral dissertation is a classical treatment of the hydrodynamic aspects of boiling heat transfer.
