Ivan Arbuckle Receives the 2002 SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award

Warrendale, PA, Jan. 20, 2004 - Ivan Arbuckle of ArvinMeritor has been awarded the 2002 SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award. In honor of his achievement, Arbuckle will be presented with a framed certificate during the Honors Convocation at the SAE 2004 World Congress in Detroit, Michigan in March.

This award, established in 1965, annually recognizes the authors of papers of outstanding technical or professional merit presented at a meeting of the Society or any of its sections during the calendar year. Papers are judged primarily for their value as new contributions to existing knowledge of mobility engineering. The award was funded by the late Arch T. Colwell, who served SAE in many capacities for nearly 50 years, including a term as president in 1941.

Arbuckle is being recognized, along with two co-authors, for his work on the paper, "Optimization Strategies Applied to Exhaust System Design." The paper's co-authors are Steven Naylor and Francis Worthington, also of ArvinMeritor, Incorporated.

Arbuckle has been developing automotive muffler systems for ArvinMeritor in Preston, England since 1999. Previously, he had been with the National Engineering Laboratory in Glasgow, Scotland, working on a broad range of technologies including wind turbines, nuclear submarines, pumps and engines. Arbuckle received his degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Strathclyde in 1991.
