Harvey Rosten Award for Excellence

The Harvey Rosten Award for Excellence commemorates Harvey's achievements in thermal analysis, and aims to encourage innovation and excellence in this field. The award is presented annually in the form of a plaque and a prize equivalent of $1000.

About Harvey Rosten

Harvey Rosten, a physics graduate, co-founded Flomerics in 1989. As Technical Director, he led Simcenter Flotherm's core solver development. Initiating Flomerics' package-level thermal initiative in 1992, he succeeded with DELPHI by 1996, revolutionizing global electronic systems' thermal analysis. He passed away on June 23, 1997, posthumously receiving the 1998 IEEE SEMI-THERM THERMI Award.
