IFHTSE Fellowship recognises individuals who have made outstanding, globally recognised and significant contributions to the development of heat treatment or surface engineering. The citations are characterised by brevity, since these honoured individuals are well known globally in the field. Fellow presentation plaques are kindly provided by Houghton International.
- Academician Lei Tingquan, Harbin Institute of Technology, China
In recognition of outstanding fundamental contributions to the microstructure and properties of steels
- Dr T S Sudarshan, Materials Modification Inc, USA
In recognition of the global communication of surface engineering as an emerging interdisciplinary subject
- Professor Tom Bell, University of Birmingham, UK
In recognition of his unique combination of crucial contributions to progress in heat treatment and, over the last twenty years, his central role in the foundation, growth, and global understanding of surface engineering as a family of concepts and processes of increasing scientific, industrial, and economic significance.
- Dr George Totten, Totten Associates, USA
In recognition of his extensive contribution, over many years, to the global spread of knowledge of heat treatment process development especially in the field of quenching, to the understanding of process chemistry, and recently to the better and more widespread use of modelling and simulation.
- Dr Zoltán Kolozsváry, SC Plasmaterm SA, Targu Mures, Romania
In recognition both of globally acknowledged industrial-scale practice in the field of plasma nitriding, and of his enormous contributions to the heat treatment and surface engineering community manifest in his presidency of IFHTSE for 1998-99 and his dedicated, successful and long-term service as its Treasurer
- Prof FAN Dongli, Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society, China
In recognition of long-term dedication to research on, and application of, energy-saving and environmentally benign heat treatment technology, as well as his role in promoting the present high visibility of the Chinese contribution to the heat treatment community globally
- Prof Michiharu Narazaki, Utsunomiya University, Japan
In recognition of his leadership in, and his own immense contribution to, the international development of knowledge, standards, procedures and modelling in the field of quenching, cooling, transformations, quench distortion and residual stress; he was also one of the first to use acoustic analysis to study boiling phenomena
- Prof Heinz-Joachim Spies, TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany
In recognition of his outstanding contributions to education and research in heat treatment and surface science and technology generally, and in particular to answering the consequent demands placed on materials development
- Prof Cemil Hakan Gür, Middle East Tech University, Ankara, Turkey
In recognition of his dedicated and tireless work in ensuring the coordination and completion of the multinational work enshrined in the publication ‘Handbook of thermal process modelling of steels’, already recognised as a milestone in its field
- Prof Lauralice Canale, EESC-USP, São Carlos SP, Brazil
In recognition of the key role she has played over many years in ensuring the global visibility of work in heat treatment and surface engineering in Latin America in general and in Brazil in particular
