Dr. Zbigniew Lozia Receives the 2002 SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award

Warrendale, PA, Jan. 20, 2004 - Dr. Zbigniew Lozia of the Warsaw University of Technology has been awarded the 2002 SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award. In honor of his achievement, Dr. Lozia will be presented with a framed certificate during the Honors Convocation at the SAE 2004 World Congress in Detroit, Michigan in March. He is being recognized, along with his co-author, Dr. Dariusz Zardecki of Poland's Automotive Industry Institute (PIMOT), for the paper, "Vehicle Dynamics Simulation with Inclusion of Freeplay and Dry Friction in Steering System."

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. Lozia has been with Warsaw University of Technology since 1977, where he is currently a professor in the Faculty of Transportation. Lozia has served as a member of research teams and the leading person of many projects sponsored by the State Committee of Scientific Research, car and truck producers (Star S.A., Daewoo), and the Military University of Technology. He has authored 113 publications in Polish and English. Lozia has a master's degree in transportation and doctoral degree from Warsaw University of Technology.
