October 2, 1933: Death of Philipp Forchheimer

October 2, 1933Philipp Forchheimer, Austrian hydraulic engineer, died. “[He] made significant studies of groundwater hydrology. Early in his academic career, he worked on problems of soil mechanics. Later, he turned to hydraulic problems, establishing the scientific basis of the discipline by applying standard techniques of mathematical physics – in particular Laplace’s equation – to problems of groundwater movement. Laplace’s equation had already been well developed for heat flow and fluid flow. Forchheimer extended the preexisting mathematical theory to calculations of groundwater flow.”
