Matalon awarded distinguished paper honor by Combustion Institute
A paper authored by MechSE professor Moshe Matalon, “Stabilization and extinction of diffusion flames in an inert porous medium,” was selected by the Combustion Institute as the Distinguished Paper in the Laminar Flames colloquium. He presented the paper at the 36th International Symposium on Combustion in Seoul, Korea.
Co-authored with Max Kokubun, and his advisor, Dr. Fernando Fachini from the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research, the paper will appear in the highly regarded Proceedings of the Combustion Institute.
This is the second time that Matalon’s work was given this honor. The previous award was for a paper co-authored with his former postdoctoral associate, Dr. Francesco Creta, at the 33rd symposium.
The 14 distinguished papers of the Institute’s various colloquia are candidates for the Silver Combustion Medal, which will be selected and announced at the 37th symposium in Dublin, Ireland.
Matalon is a College of Engineering Caterpillar Distinguished Professor who joined the MechSE department in 2007.
