Award: 

Benjamin Franklin Medal

  • Citation: For his pioneering interdisciplinary contributions in thermodynamics and convection heat transfer that have improved the performance of engineering systems, and for constructal theory, which predicts natural design and its evolution in engineering, scientific, and social systems.

Adrian Bejan had to find a way to cool small electronics without using traditional methods. Faced with this challenge, he discovered how to flow heat away from small electronics and follow natural pathways allowing it to escape on its own. This discovery not only keeps your laptop from overheating, it sparked an entire line of thought for Bejan about how natural systems branch and flow called “constructal theory.”
