Dr Chengming He, a PhD graduate of PolyU Department of Mechanical Engineering, won the Best Paper Award in the 21st Annual Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray System (ILASS-Asia 2020) held in Zhenjiang, China on 23-26 October 2020. He presented a paper “A computational study of spinning effects on bouncing and coalescence of head-on colliding droplets”. The corresponding author of the paper is his PhD supervisor, Dr Peng Zhang.

ILASS-Asia, the Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems, Asia, was established in 1991 as an outgrowth of the International Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems (ICLASS). It was built for the mutual exchange of scientific and technical ideas in all field related to atomization and spray at Asia area.

Dr Chengming He received his PhD degree under the supervision of Dr Peng Zhang in 2020. Currently, he is a Research Associate of State Key Laboratory of High Temperature Gas Dynamics, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
