Ship Technology Research/ Schiffstechnik, vol. 42(1995), pp. 140–156
Touvia Miloh was born in Tel-Aviv in 1943. He studied at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa and graduated in 1965 to B.Sc. and 1968 to M.Sc. in Hydrodynamics. From 1969 to 1971 he worked as a research engineer at the State University of Iowa and received his doctorate in 1971 with a thesis on a theory of higher order with regard to wave resistance.
From 1972/73 he remained an assistant professor at this university and since 1973 he has been working at Tel-Aviv University, Ramat-Aviv, until 1976 as Senior Lecturer, then as associate professor and from 1981 as Professor of Hydrodynamics. He has also held many other academic offices. He has been a visiting professor at many universities, including four times at the Institute of Shipbuilding in Hamburg, the University of California at Berkeley and Santa Barbara, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, the University of Delaware, the Universities of Witwatersand and Pretoria in South Africa, and the Universities of New South Wales and Adelaide in Australia.
His scientific achievements in various fields of hydrodynamics are enormous. He dealt mainly with two problem areas that are not equally weighted: mathematical modelling of physical relationships and the application of the theory of differential games. Marine applications include wave resistance calculations, manoeuvring, sloshing and the movement of various bodies. His work includes more than a hundred publications. In 1992 he received the OMAE Award for the best lecture.
