ASCE - Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize
Organization: American Society of Civil Engineers
The award is given to the author, or authors, of that paper which is judged to be of superior merit, dealing with a problem of flowing water, either in theory or practice. Preferably, the award is given to a paper that is not otherwise recognized by receiving another Society prize. The value of the paper is judged both on the basis of the subject matter and the method of presentation. Papers published by the Society during the twelve-month period ending with June of the year preceding the year of award are eligible.
