Yang Receives Jakob Memorial Award

Viola D. Hank Professor Emeritus of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Kwang-Tzu Yang will receive the 2006 Max Jakob Memorial Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers at the ASME-JSME (Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers) Thermal Engineering and Summer Heat Transfer Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, in July 2007.

The award was established in 1961 in honor of Max Jakob, a pioneer in the science of heat transmission. It is presented annually in recognition of “eminent achievement of distinguished service in the area of heat transfer.”

Recipients of the Max Jakob award receive a bronze plaque, honorarium, and certificate. Each recipient also presents the Max Jakob Award Lecture as part of the annual ASME Summer Heat Transfer Conference. This is a special honor for Yang as Jakob was his Ph.D. adviser.

A faculty member since 1955, Yang’s research focuses on heat exchanger dynamics, hydronic systems, application of artificial intelligence, oscillating flows, modeling of large fires and fire whirls, tribology, food and materials processing, and technology transfer. He holds a patent for flexible coupling and one for the wet oxidation of coal (for the generation of heat energy).
