Ford Foundation grants in excess of $40,000 have been awarded to two research projects currently under way at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, it was announced here today by Maurice M. Rosen, president of the American Technion Society.

“The Ford grants cover two important areas of research, “Mr. Rosen said. The larger part of the grant will be used by a team of Mechanical Engineering faculty members to investigate “heat transfer between fluid Jets and their surroundings,” while the balance of the funds will be devoted to a “study on the use of digital techniques in process control.”
