The French Hydrotechnical Society (SHF) awards the Jean Valembois Prize every year, in partnership with Électricité de France.

This prize is awarded every year to French-speaking doctoral theses or theses delivered by a French-speaking university dealing with incompressible or weakly compressible fluid mechanics in all its applications to industry and the environment, particularly in the presence of mass transfer, heat, reactions … or interactions (soil, structures, living environments) …, defended between September 1, year n-2 and December 30, year n-1

Highly expandable flows, such as combustion, are not in the scope of the award.

The jury will appreciate scientific studies that highlight innovation, present a technical-economic or societal interest, and open up development possibilities in France and abroad.

The quality of the scientific work as well as that of the thesis will also be criteria appreciated by the jury.

The jury that awards this prize is composed of specialists chosen by the board of the Scientific and Technical Committee of the SHF. It is chaired by the President of this Committee or his permanent representative, assisted by a representative of Électricité de France.
