Dr. Bach awarded Willis H. Carrier IIR Young Researchers Award

Dr. Christian Bach, assistant professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Oklahoma State University (OSU), has been selected by the International Institute of Refrigeration as the winner of the Willis H. Carrier IIR Young Researchers Award for his research that deals with flow maldistribution that can be caused by frost build-up. Maintaining and improving energy efficient operation of the unit can be managed through refrigerant flow distribution control, which was shown to increase energy efficiency by more than 10 percent for some extreme operating conditions. Bach will be receiving the award at the 24th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration in Yokohama, Japan.
