Jan Sengers Elected to Fellow in IUPAC

Affiliate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Distinguished University Professor Emeritus Jan Sengers has been elected to Fellow status in the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

Sengers’ elevation to Fellow is in recognition of his research achievements in fluid science, academic achievements and contributions to IUPAC. He was a subcommittee member IUPAC‘s Commission I.2 on Transport Properties of Fluids since 1985. He served as editor and co-editor for two IUPAC Volumes, and the co-author of five chapters in three IUPAC Volumes.

Sengers’ research group developed equations for the transport properties of several fluids which have been adopted by IUPAC as recommended international standards.

In the field of fluid science, Sengers specializes in research on fluctuations in nonequilibrium fluids and the transport properties and thermodynamics of fluids and fluid mixtures.
