Froude, William

[frood]

(1810--79)

Engineer and applied mathematician, born in Dartington, Devon, SW England, UK, the brother of James Anthony Froude. He studied at Oxford and worked as a railway engineer until 1846, then devoted himself to hydrodynamics and developed a method by which data derived from scale model ships could be applied to the full-size ship. His name is preserved in the Froude dynamometer, a device he designed for measuring the power output of large engines.
