Physicist (fluid dynamics, theory of turbulence, viscosity of suspensions). Major affiliations include: technische Hodeschool te Delft, Delft, Netherlands, 1918-1975; and University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA, 1975-. He died in 1981.

Burgers was an author and professor of fluid dynamics at the University of Maryland College Park.

He was a leading authority on fluid dynamics and worked extensively on the theory of turbulence, exploring what is now known as the Burgers equation. He also wrote fundamental papers on the intrinsic viscosity of suspensions.
