Lehigh Affiliations


As former director of Lehigh's Energy Research Center, Dr. Ed Levy conducted research of fundamental fluid mechanics and heat transfer phenomena, techniques for process optimization of large coal-fired power plants, emissions control from coal-fired boilers, and power plant efficiency improvements.

He conducts fundamental heat transfer and fluid mechanics research in the thermal fluid sciences, and has taught courses at Lehigh in thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics and energy conversion. A recurring theme of his research has been the development of techniques to improve generating efficiency and reduce emissions of pollutants from coal-fired power plants.

Levy has served as an engineer for the U.S. Naval Ordinance Laboratory and the Thermo Electron Corporation. He has been a member of the technical staff at Bell Telephone Laboratories, and as a professional associate of the Integrated Utility Systems Board of National Academy of Engineering. Levy is also the holder of one U.S. patent in for ammonia removal from fly ash in an acoustically enhanced fluidized bed.
