Dr. Balachandar receives the “2024 ASME Fluids Engineering Award”

The ASME Fluids Engineering Award was established by the Fluid Engineering Division in 1968. The awards stands for many honors, specifically it represents an individual for outstanding contributions over a period of years for the engineering profession and to the field of fluids engineering through research, practice, and/or teaching.

Dr. Balachandar was selected for this award due to his “groundbreaking contributions to the physical processes, modeling, and the numerical computations of multiphase flows in environmental, industrial, and high-speed applications.”

Dr. Balachandar’s contribution to society through his years of success in fluid engineering are unique and something that he is very proud of. “It is a real honor to be nominated by colleagues and selected for this distinguished award. It is a wonderful thing for the entire MAE department.”
