International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer

Hartnett-Irvine Award

 The newly established Hartnett-Irvine Award is given annually to the best paper on heat or mass transfer presented at a conference, symposium or seminar organized or co-sponsored by ICHMT in the previous year. The Award has been established to honor the lives and memory of James P. Hartnett and Thomas F. Irvine, founders of ICHMT and outstanding leaders in the fields of energy resources and heat and mass transfer research. The Award consists of a medal and a certificate. The procedure for allocating this award is below:
 
1.      The International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer will award annually the Hartnett-Irvine Award for the best paper on heat or mass transfer presented at a conference, symposium or seminar organized or co-sponsored by ICHMT in the previous year.
 
2.      The Award has been established to honor the lifes and memory of James P. Hartnett and Thomas F. Irvine, founders of ICHMT and outstanding leaders in the fields of energy resources and heat and mass transfer research.
 
3.      Nominations for the award shall be invited annually by the Secretary-General from the Chairs of each ICHMT activity conducted in the previous year, who shall send their nominations and copies of the relevant papers to the Chair of the ICHMT Honors and Awards Committee. Nominations shall be judged by the Honors and Awards Committee of ICHMT. The H&A Committee recommendation shall be sent to the Executive Committee of ICHMT for endorsement.
 
4.      The Award shall consist of a medal and a certificate.
