1.6.1903 Voghera/I - 21.5.1996 Torino/I
Carlo Ferrari graduated as a mechanical engineer from Torino Politecnico in 1926. Here there became a Lecturer in aerodynamics in 1929 and in 1932 was appointed associate professor of applied mechanics. From 1935 to 1948, he was a professor of aerodynamics and Ferrari then took over the chair of applied mechanics until his retirement in 1973.
The success of Ferrari's career was his twofold basis in science, namely as Italian aerodynamicist and second his international relations, mainly with the United States. He contributed to the wing theory in his early writings and eventually took interest in general fluid mechanics. He was also an expert in high-speed aerodynamics and for instance analyzed the interaction between a wing and a body under such conditions. Ferrari is further known for his works in analogue models, an issue of importance prior to the availability of modern computers in determining the plane flow patterns in aerodynamics. He also published in 1962 a notable work on transonic aerodynamics. Ferrari presided over the Turin Academy of Sciences, he was a Member of the prestigious Accademia dei Lincei in Rome, a Member of the International Academy of Astronautics and vice-president of Associazione Italiana di Meccanica Teorica ed Applicata. He was awarded the premiums Bressa in 1937 from the Turin Academy, the National Premium of Accademia dei Lincei in 1950 and the International Premium La Giara d'oro in 1969. Ferrari was from 1963 a Member of Accademia dei Lincei.
