The Max Jakob Memorial Award is bestowed in recognition of eminent achievement of distinguished service in the area of Heat Transfer. Made annually, without regard to society affiliation or nationality, the Award consists of a glass plaque, an honorarium of $1,000.00 and reimbursement for travel expenses up to $1,000.00 to accept the award.
The Award was established in 1961 by the ASME Heat Transfer Division in honor of Max Jakob, a pioneer in the science of heat transmission, commemorating his outstanding contributions as a research worker, educator and author. In 1962, AICHE joined in the Award, which is administered by the Max Jakob Memorial Award Committee, a Board of seven, three from each Society, and the Past Chair.
