The Andreas Acrivos Award recognizes exceptional young scientists who have performed original doctoral thesis work of outstanding scientific quality and achievement in the area of fluid dynamics. The annual award consists of $1,000, a certificate, travel reimbursement, a registration waiver to attend the annual meeting of the Division of Fluid Dynamics to give an invited talk and accept the award.
The award was established in 1998 to honor the many outstanding contributions to fluid mechanics of Dr. Andreas Acrivos, particularly his years of distinguished editorship of Physics of Fluids. It is supported by donations from members and friends of the Division of Fluid Dynamics.
Congratulations, Dr. DiBenedetto!
