WARRENDALE, Pa., May 10, 2010 - Ramesh K. Agarwal, a St. Louis resident and the William Palm Professor of Engineering at Washington University, has been named a winner of the SAE International 2010 Forest R. McFarland Award.

The McFarland award recognizes individuals for outstanding contributions to the SAE Engineering Meetings Board and the development and dissemination of information through technical meetings, conferences, and professional development programs, or for contributions in facilitating or enhancing the interchange of technical information.

Agarwal has served SAE in several leadership roles for 15 years. He has been a member of the SAE Aerodynamics Committee since 1994, including the service both as vice-chair and Chair. He has served as a member of Wright Brothers Medal Committee since 2006 and has been its chair since 2008. In 2009, he was appointed to serve as a member of the fellow grade selection committee.

Agarwal earned his doctoral degree in aeronautical sciences from Stanford University in 1975, a master's in aeronautical engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1969, and a bachelor's in mechanical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in 1968.

Established in 1979, the award honors the late Forest R.

Funding for this award is through a bequest by McFarland to SAE and consists of a framed certificate presented at the SAE World Congress.
