Jerzy Bukowski graduated as a mechanical engineer from the Warsaw Polytechnic in 1930 and there stayed as an assistant in the aerodynamics Institute. He gained a PhD title in 1932 and his second thesis in 1938, upon which he was appointed Lecturer in aerodynamics. In 1945 Bukowski moved to Lublin in the East of Poland and there accepted the chair of hydromechanics and aerodynamics. In 1949, he returned to Warsaw to join as an associate professor the Aerodynamics Institute, which he directed from 1956. Bukowski was from 1957 a Corresponding Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences and later elected Member. He was decorated with the Krzyzem Order of the Polonia Restituta, first as a cavalier, then as an officer and finally as a Commander. He also received the Order of Honor from the Republic of Poland.
Bukowski was the prime Polish aerodynamicist from the 1940s to the 1960s. He contributed with his PhD thesis to laboratory installations that were by then available in other countries. His 1942 report reflects the findings that he made during his habilitation thesis. The 1959 book is an account on hydromechanics and served mainly as a course text, as did also his revised 1980 book. A full description of the hydro-aerodynamical Laboratory of the Warsaw Polytechnic was presented in the 1933 and the 1974 reports. The notion "hydro-aerodynamics" originates from Russia, with VNIIG still being an important Saint Petersburg establishment. In contrast to those in the West they were concerned with air and fluid flows. Bukowski also edited the Copernicus memorial text published in 1973 to commemorate the 500th birthday of the great Polish astronomer.
