AUTSE Awardee


2017 AUTSE Outstanding Achievement Awardee

The Executive Committee of AUTSE has decided that Professor Zeng-Yuan Guo of Tsinghua University shall be awarded the first Outstanding Achievement Award for his life-time achievements in thermal sciences and engineering. The committee valued his original research encompassing thermofluid dynamics, thermal synergy, micro/nano heat transfer mechanisms, thermomass theory and entransy, which has transformed our understanding of the physical mechanisms in many kinds of thermal systems and led to very effective methods to optimize thermal designs. The award lecture and ceremony will be given during the 1st Asian Conference on Thermal Sciences (ACTS), which is going to be held  in Jeju, Korea in March 2017. The details can be found in the webpage of ACTS, http://acts2017.org.
