Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot Medal for Prof John Davidson

last modified Feb 17, 2016 02:47 PM

The Medals and Prizes Committee of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) has warmly and unanimously decided that Prof John Davidson should be the recipient of the Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot Medal for Exceptional Research in Transport Phenomena.

The medal is awarded to researchers who have made outstanding contributions in the field and here is an example of some of the judges' comments:

  • Truly pioneering work in fluidisation and mass transfer
  • An outstanding contribution over many years
  • Clearly associated with advancing the field of fluidisation and has made major contributions within and somewhat beyond that scope

The photograph shows John at one of the many celebrations for his recent 90th birthday.

The award is named in honour of Chemical and Biological Engineering Professor Emeritus Byron Bird, Chemical and Biological Engineering Hilldale Professor Emeritus Edwin N. Lightfoot, and the late McFarland-Bascom Professor Emeritus of Chemical and Biological Engineering Warren Earl Stewart.
