Thermal to Mechanical Energy Conversion: Engines and Requirements is a component of Encyclopedia of Energy Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The Theme on Thermal to Mechanical Energy Conversion: Engines and Requirements with contributions from distinguished experts in the field discusses energy. These three volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Academician Oleg Favorsky was born in 1929 in Saratov, Russia. He graduated in 1951 from the Moscow Aviation Institute, and had got his Ph.D. in 1956 and Doctorate in Technical Sciences in 1966. Since 1951 he has worked in the aviation industry. From 1973 to 1987 he took up the post of Chief Designer and Director General of Moscow Aircraft Engine Production Association “Soyuz.” From 1972 to 1994, he was a member of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Gas Turbine Commission of the Academy, and Deputy Academician-Secretary for energetics. From 1994 to the present time he is the Academician-Secretary, Head of Division of Physical-Technical Problems of Energetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), and a Member of the Presidium of RAS. His scientific interests are thermodynamic and gas dynamics, land and space transformation of heat energy into electric energy, and aviation engine design. He has Honorary Membership of the Vice-Presidency of the International Academy of Energetics (1994), and the Russian Academy of Flight and Aviation (1995). He was awarded the Laureate of Lenin (1982) and State (2000) Prizes, and he is the author of more than 200 publications, including six books on five types of aviation engine
