The Nusselt–Reynolds Prize has been established by the Assembly of World
Conferences to commemorate outstanding contributions by Wilhelm Nusselt and Osborne
Reynolds as experimentalists, researchers, educators, and authors. As many as three
prizes may be bestowed at every World Conference, one in each of the areas of heat
transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, or any combination of these.
The prize will be bestowed for outstanding scientific and engineering contributions
and eminent achievements in the fields of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics
through (1) experimental studies and analytical/numerical extension of the
measurements, (2) development of experimental techniques, visualization techniques,
and/or instrumentation, and/or (3) development of design theory (that needs
experimental data) and theory-based experimental correlations. These contributions should
yield a deeper insight into physical phenomena involved or should yield significant
technological advances. In addition to research, the awardee(s) should have made
outstanding contributions to the field through teaching, design, or a combination of
such activities. The prize is based on achievement through publications or through
the application of the science or art. Nationality, age, sex, and society membership will
not be considered when evaluating qualifications of candidates. A candidate must be
living at the time of designation as a recipient of the prize.
The prize consists of a bronze plaque, and engrossed certificate, and an honorarium.
The prize is administered by the Prize Board. The deadline for accepting nominations
for the Prize is February 2, 2000. The prize will be awarded at the Fifth World
Conference during September 24–28, 2001 in Thessaloniki, Greece where the prize
winners will also present plenary lectures on their subjects.
