This special supplement to Mechanical Engineering magazine showcases the history of the Heat Transfer Division and includes an update on the activities of our three archival journals.
Webb Marner has written an interesting article on the history of the Heat Transfer Division that will be published in special issues of our journals.
The Heat Transfer Division strives to meet the challenges of disseminating timely technical information through a number of activities.
Our annual Heat Transfer Division Honors and Awards Luncheon was held at the 2012 IMECE in Houston.
Clearly, Jakob had a major influence on Kezios who became Chair of the Heat Transfer Division in 1958-59, the first technical editor of the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer in 1963, and ASME's 96th President in 1977-78.
However, the actual formation of the Heat Transfer Division as an independent division did not occur until three years later.
Each of these individuals made unique contributions to the Society, Heat Transfer Division, and engineering profession.
She currently serves on the Heat Transfer Division's 75th Anniversary Planning Committee (2012-13) and is ASME representative (2011-14) for the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer.
He was a member of the Heat Transfer Division's Executive Committee (1998-2004) and served as chair (2002-03); and has contributed in various other capacities.
The Heat Transfer Memorial Award was established in 1959 by the Heat Transfer Division. In 1974, it was elevated to an ASME award recognizing outstanding contributions to the field of heat transfer through teaching, research, practice, and design, or a combination of such activities.
He is the recipient of the Institute Silver Medal the National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, the ASME Melville Medal the ASME Heat Transfer Division
's Best Paper Award, and ASME's Gustus Larson Memorial Award.
