Melville Medal

The Melville Medal is the highest ASME honor for the best original paper (not published elsewhere) which has been published in the ASME Transactions during the two calendar years immediately preceding the year of the award. The paper may have more than one author, but one of the authors shall be an ASME corporate member (Fellow, Member or Associate Member). The paper shall be specifically recommended for the medal by a review committee or qualified individual.  

The Melville Medal may be awarded for a paper that has been selected for some other best paper award in the Society. Thus, papers selected for special awards (Blackall, Prime Movers, Gas Turbine or Rail Transportation) or for best paper awards of professional Divisions, Sections or other ASME bodies may be considered for the Melville Medal if specifically recommended by the committee responsible for the award.

First awarded in 1927, the Melville Medal is by the bequest in 1914 of Admiral George W. Melville, Honorary Member and Eighteenth President of the Society.
