Mitsubishi Fuso Engineers Win SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 23, 2006 -

A team of authors from Mitsubishi Fuso has been selected to receive SAE International’s Arch T. Colwell Merit Award.  They will be presented the award at the SAE 2006 World Congress in Detroit, April 3-6. 

This award, established in 1965, annually recognizes the authors of papers of outstanding technical or professional merit. 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 International in many capacities for nearly 50 years, including a term as President in 1941.  Seven papers were selected for this year’s honor, including a paper authored by the Mitsubishi Fuso team: “Premixed Compression Ignition (PCI) Combustion for Simultaneous Reduction of NOx and Soot in Diesel Engine” (2004-01-1907).
