22.1.1897 Neu-Kalzenau/LV - 4.4.1974 Hamburg/D
Georg Weinblum graduated in 1923 as a mechanical engineer from Danzig Technical University after having initiated studies in Saint Petersburg in 1914. He then was an assistant with Gustav Flügel (1885-1967) and submitted in 1929 his PhD thesis. In 1936, Weinblum was appointed associate professor at Berlin University from where he moved to Danzig University in 1942. After World War II, he spent some time in England and then continued to the USA, where he was a research associate at David Taylor Model Basin. Weinblum was from 1952 professor of naval engineering at Hamburg University and Honorary professor at Hannover University from 1953. Until retirement in 1962 he directed also the newly founded Institute of naval engineering. He was awarded Honorary Doctorates from TU Berlin in 1960, TU Vienna and the University of Michigan; he was further decorated with the William Froude Medal from the Institution of Naval Architects in the UK, the Medal of Merit from Association Techniques Maritimes et Aéronautiques and the 1972 Davidson Medal from the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, USA.
Weinblum's life was devoted to naval engineering. He was particularly interested in the resistance of naval bodies of which he contributed mainly to the wave resistance. Moreover he investigated the behavior and safety aspects of ships in storm conditions. He was able to find a relation between naval shape and wave resistance. Weinblum was in addition an outstanding teacher and colleague that promoted significantly students and stimulated international corporation in ship research. His organizational talents were realized by contributing to associations that promote naval architecture.
