Sanjeev Chandra honoured with Classic Paper Award at American Society of Mechanical Engineers conference


Professor Sanjeev Chandra was presented with the Classic Paper Award by the Heat Transfer Division at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) conference earlier this month. The recipient is selected by the ASME Honors and Awards Committee to highlight exceptional papers that were published at least fifteen years ago.

The paper, which has been cited over 1000 times and is titled “On the collision of a droplet with a solid surface,” was originally published in 1991 and was based on Chandra’s PhD thesis work conducted at Cornell University. The paper was based on an experimental study of liquid droplets landing on a heated surface in which the droplets were photographed during impact. It helped in understanding the heat transfer between hot surfaces and impinging droplets, which is important in applications such as spray cooling and spray combustion.
