Sj�berg Receives SAE Russell S. Springer Award

WARRENDALE, Pa., Dec. 12, 2006 - Dr. Magnus SjöbergDr. Magnus Sjöberg of Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, Calif., has been selected to receive SAE International's Russell S. Springer Award. The award will be presented at the SAE 2007 World Congress in Detroit, Mich., April 16-19.

This award recognizes an outstanding technical paper written by a young SAE International member. Sjöberg is the lead author of "Effects of Engine Speed, Fueling Rate, and Combustion Phasing on the Thermal Stratification Required to Limit HCCI Knocking Intensity” (SAE Paper # 2005-01-2125), which he co-authored with John E. Dec.

Sjöberg is currently on the LTE Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. Since 2005, he has led a project focusing on the use of partial fuel stratification to extend the high-load limit of HCCI/SCCI engines. This work also evaluates the benefits of fuels with specifications that fall outside the normal ranges of gasoline and diesel fuels.  In 2001, Sjöberg joined Sandia National Laboratories as a post-doctoral fellow, working on HCCI fundamentals.

Sjöberg has authored or co-authored more than 20 peer-reviewed papers on both diesel and HCCI combustion. A member of SAE International, he received the Forest R. McFarland Award for his contributions as a technical meeting session organizer.

Sjöberg holds a master’s degree in machine design from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He received his doctorate from the same educational institution.
