Dr. Ronald Willey, Professor of the Chemical Engineering Department, received the Bill Doyle Award for best paper presented at the 2011 AIChE Loss Prevention Symposium.
The work coauthored with Michael Cutlip and H. Scott Fogler, related to the modeling of a reactor explosion incident in Florida in 2007 (A Reactor Explosion at T2). It has also been noted by John Wiley and Sons as one of the hottest articles published in 2011 in the field of chemical engineering and process safety.
Finally, the work is being used in the kinetics and reactor design courses through an AIChE SACHE module authored by Professor Willey, and as an example in Professor H. Scott Fogler’s kinetics and reaction engineering textbook, “The Integration of Process Safety into a Chemical Reaction Engineering Course: Kinetic Modeling of the T2 Incident.”
Congratulations to Dr. Ronald Willey from the Chair, Faculty, and Staff of the Chemical Engineering Department.
