A. K. M. Fazle Hussain (born 20 January 1943, in Bangladesh) is a professor of mechanical engineering at Texas Tech University.[1][2]


Hussain graduated with a BS in mechanical engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 1963.[1] He went on to attend Stanford University, where he studied under William Craig Reynolds,[citation needed] and received his MS and PhD in mechanical engineering in 1966 and 1969.[1]

Afterwards, Hussain was a post-doctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University with Leslie S. G. Kovasznay and Stanley Corrsin.[citation needed]


Hussain was a professor of mechanical engineering at University of Houston from 1976 to 2013. More recently, he was also a professor in the Earth & atmospheric science and physics departments from 2007 to 2013.[1][3] At UH, he held the Cullen Professorship in mechanical engineering.[4]

In 2001, Hussain was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering for "fundamental experiments and concepts concerning important structures in turbulence, vortex dynamics, and acoustics, and for new turbulence measurement techniques."[5] He is also a member of the advisory board at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology.[citation needed]
