Heat Transfer Memorial Award

The Heat Transfer Memorial Award

The Heat Transfer Memorial Award is bestowed on individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of heat transfer through teaching, research, practice, design, service, leadership, inventions, or a combination of such activities.

One award may be made annually in each of the three following categories: the science of heat transfer, the art of heat transfer, and the general subject of heat transfer. Each of the three categories of science, art and general is based on achievements through publications, patents and/or inventions, advancement of educational content and/or pedagogy, or exemplary community service with a focus on heat transfer. These can include but are not necessarily limited to the following:

Science – Publication of results in professional journals, reports, books, peer-reviewed conference or symposium proceedings, and other such platforms, to establish substantive advancements in thermal science through analytical, computational, and/or experimental research. The research contributions are considered to be seminal, or breakthrough discoveries and/or processes, or significant advancement of prevailing science. This may also include science-related patents.

Art – Significant contributions to the art and application of heat transfer engineering through design and development of heat transfer components and systems, and/or development and publication of heat transfer correlations for industrial applications, which have been implemented or are used in practice. Publication of applications-oriented results in heat transfer handbooks, design data books, and in other similar industry use platforms, including peer-reviewed journals. Development and practical implementation of economic analyses of heat transfer systems. Award of application-related patents; leadership in heat transfer related design or industrial product development; and other such appropriate achievements.

General – Extensive service to the mission of the ASME Heat Transfer Division (HTD) and its community. This may be reflected in exemplary volunteer leadership positions in HTD and ASME; as an editor or associate editor of an ASME heat transfer journal; in a proactive and impactful role in technical sessions at national and international conferences; in an impactful role in cross-division, cross-segment, and cross-sector activities of ASME and HTD. Leadership in student and early career mentoring, especially with heat transfer and ASME related activities. Publish nationally and/or internationally recognized and impactful (adopted, highly referenced, etc.) heat transfer textbooks or monographs or handbooks.

Each nomination is to be submitted in only one of the three categories, and this should be so indicated a priori on the nomination form.

The Heat Transfer Memorial Award was established by the Heat Transfer Division in 1959 and operated as a division award until 1974 when it was elevated to a Society award.
