James Harry Potter Medalist
AME's Satwindar Sadhal Wins Medal
AME's own Prof. Satwindar Singh Sadhal has been awarded the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers' James Harry Potter Gold Medal for
2007. This medal "recognizes eminent achievement or distinguished
service in the science of thermodynamics in mechanical engineering."
It is awarded based on the candidate's contributions in the "teaching,
appreciation, or utilization of thermodynamic principles in research,
development, and design in mechanical engineering." In Professor
Sadhal's case the citation reads
Congratulations, Prof. Sadhal!
For advancing the fundamental thermodynamics of phase change and
interfacial phenomena with seminal research on heat-mass
transfer via droplets and bubbles and their fluid dynamics in
natural and industrial systems, and for lasting contributions to
mechanical engineering through teaching and archival literature.
