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.”
