Awards for Excellent Research

 

In the past years, Prof. Wagner has received the following research awards that can be also considered as a distinction for his co-workers (research associates).

Ceremony of dignity "Doctor of Engineering Honorary" (Dr.-Ing. e. h.) by the Technical University Dresden
The awarding of the honorary doctorate by the Technical University Dresden on 18 May 2015 was an expression of appreciation of the life's work of Prof. Wagner in recognition of his outstanding achievements and contributions in the Technical Thermodynamics, especially in the development of precision equipment to measure the density of gases and liquids and the development of highly accurate equations of state for fluid substances and mixtures.

 

Gibbs Award 2008 of IAPWS
This award was given to Prof. Wagner in 2008 by the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) for his research in the experimental and theoretical field of thermophysical properties of gases and liquids over wide ranges temperature and pressure.

The appreciation reads:

"In recognition of outstandig contributions to experimental and theoretical research and being an international authority on thermophysical properties. The work includes devising apparatus for densimetry, which is now the accepted standard worldwide, and the production of a new generation of multi-parameter equations of state for many industrially important pure substances and also for multi-component mixtures. Several of these are accepted as international reference equations for thermodynamic properties."

This award is only given every four to five years (for the first time in 1999).

Yeram S. Touloukian Award 2003 of ASME

This award was given to Prof. Wagner in 2003 by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for his research in the following fields (citation):

“For outstanding contributions to the measurement of thermodynamic properties over the whole range of fluid states, including the critical region, the development of innovative equipment for thermophysical property measurements, and the development of highly accurate multiparameter equations-of-state, including the recent standards for water and steam.”

Based on common assessment this award has the internationally highest reputation in the field of thermophysical properties of pure substances and mixtures, and this award is given only every three years (for the first time in 1988).

IAPWS Honorary Fellow Award

This award was given to Prof. Wagner in 1998 by the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam for the following research in the the field of the thermodynamic properties of water and steam (citation):

“For long-standing efforts in formulating and improving IAPWS releases. For effective organizing and directing an international effort resulting in the IAPWS Formulation 1995 for the Thermodynamic Properties of Ordinary Water Substance for General and Scientific Use, and the IAPWS Industrial Formulation 1997. For developing accurate densimetry and correlation methods for fluid properties.”
