HAMID ARASTOOPOUR NAMED RECIPIENT OF 2015 AICHE THOMAS BARON AWARD IN FLUID-PARTICLE SYSTEMS

Hamid Arastoopour, Henry R. Linden Professor of Engineering and WISER director, has been named as recipient of the 2015 Thomas Baron Award in Fluid-Particle Systems by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Particle Technology Forum (PTF). The award recognizes an individual’s scientific/technical accomplishment that has made a significant impact in the field of fluid particle systems or in a related field with potential for cross fertilization. The award citation honors Arastoopour as “a pioneer in the development of the theory and mathematical model for flow of multi-sized particles with varying particle properties distribution and the required CFD/PBE model and FCMOM (finite-sized domain method of moments) numerical technique.” As the 2015 Thomas Baron awardee, Arastoopour will deliver a Plenary Lecture titled “CFD Simulation of Gas-Solid Flows: Poly-Dispersed Systems” at the AIChE Annual Meeting PTF Award Session on Tuesday, November 10 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
