Ljubisav Krsmanovič was born in Bihar County in today's Bosnia and Herzegovina. He gained his diploma in 1954 as a mechanical engineer from Belgrade University. Initiating his academic career in its Department of Mechanical Engineering in 1958, he stayed there until retirement in 1988. Krsmanovič was a professor from the 1970s.
In 1958, Krsmanovič joined a group developing mini-turbines for remote locations in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. His work focused on its efficiency and the flow field across the runner. This led in 1965 to his PhD thesis. Krsmanovič then investigated energy generation including the testing, maintenance and the optimization of hydroelectric and pumping stations. Further, he designed pumps, fans and blowers. Krsmanovič's work included also the promotion, the understanding and the solution of problems relating to turbo machinery, energy generators, transient analysis and the design of hydroelectric machinery. He authored or co-authored a total of eleven books, five of them after having retired. His participation in the design of the Iron Gate hydroelectric scheme was noteworthy, the largest scheme and navigation system in Europe in the 1970s. He also served as an adjunct professor at the Universities of Ljubljana in Slovenia, Zagreb, Rijeka and Split in Croatia, Skopje in Macedonia, Sarajevo and Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Podgorica in Montenegro, and Novi Sad, Niš, Kragujevac and Pristina in Serbia. Krsmanovič was decorated for this impressive service in education from the Institute Jaroslav Černi, Belgrade and honored with the Red Medal for Work by the Federal Government of Yugoslavia. He was further a Council Member of the Yugoslav Association for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and an IAHR Member. He for instance presided over the 15th IAHR Symposium on Hydraulic Machinery and Cavitation held in Belgrade in 1990.
