Dr. Daniel E. Green Receives the 2002 SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award

Warrendale, PA, Jan. 20, 2004 - Dr. Daniel E. Green of the Industrial Research and Development Institute (IRDI) in Ontario, Canada, has been awarded the 2002 SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award. In honor of his achievement, Dr. Green will be presented with a framed certificate during the Honors Convocation at the SAE 2004 World Congress in Detroit, Michigan in March. Dr. Green is being recognized, along with co-author Kevin Black, for the paper, "A Visual Technique to Determine the Forming Limit for Sheet Materials."

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.

Dr. Green is Technology Manager for IRDI's Metal Forming research team. Since joining IRDI in 1997, he has focused on researching formability analysis including developing techniques for determining FLD, studying the influence of prestrain on formability, and investigating the influence of drawbeads in metal stamping.

Dr. Green holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Université de Sherbrooke, Québec. His undergraduate engineering work was completed at the Université de Metz in France.
