Ramesh Agarwal, the William Palm Professor of Engineering in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has been selected to receive the 2024 Thar Energy Award from the American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the design research, innovation and product design in the areas related to energy engineering. The award will be presented at the International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference in Washington, D.C. in August. 

Earlier this year, Agarwal was awarded the SAE International Award for Aerospace Innovation and the 2024 Thermal and Fluids Engineering Award from the American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers. 

Over the past 48 years, Agarwal has worked in computational fluid dynamics, computational magnetohydrodynamics, and electromagnetics, computational aeroacoustics, multidisciplinary design and optimization, turbomachinery and pumps, rarefied gas dynamics and hypersonic flows, bio-fluid dynamics, and flow and flight control. He also has devoted some of his efforts to renewable energy systems (wind and biomass) and clean energy technologies of chemical looping combustion (CLC) and carbon, capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS). He is the author and co-author of more than 600 publications and serves on the editorial board of more than 20 journals. Agarwal serves on many professional, government and industrial advisory committees and is a Fellow of nearly 30 societies including AIAA, ASME, IEEE, SAE, AAAS, APS and ASEE. He has received the highest awards from AIAA, ASME, SAE and ASEE.
