WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 20, 2008 - A team of engineers from IFP, an international research and training center headquartered near Paris, is the recipient of SAE International's Harry L. Horning Memorial Award. The team was presented the award during the SAE On-Board Diagnostics Symposium: Light & Heavy Duty in Lyon-Villeurbane, France.

The award, established in 1938, recognizes the authors of the best paper relating to the mutual adaptation of fuels and internal combustion engines. It honors the memory of Harry L. Horning, 1925 SAE President.

This award is funded through the SAE Foundation. In addition to supporting the awards, recognition and scholarship programs of SAE International, the SAE Foundation develops and funds programs and incentives that foster student interest in engineering, scientific and technical education.

The following recipients are being honored for co-authoring the paper, "A Study of Combustion Structure and Implications on Post-Oxidation Under Homogeneous and Stratified Operation in a DISI Engine" (SAE paper #2006-01-1262).

Jerome Cherel Cherel is a technician in the optical diagnostics group within the engine system analysis department at IFP. Previously, he worked on optical diagnostics applied to DISI and CAI/HCCI combustion engines.

Julian Kashdan Kashdan is a research engineer in the optical diagnostics group within the engine system analysis department at IFP. He is involved in the research and development of cleaner, fuel-efficient combustion systems. Previously, he was a postdoctoral research associate in the mechanical engineering department at Stanford University.

Kashdan has published more than 15 international conference and journal publications, and was an invited speaker at the SAE 2006 HCCI Symposium.

Kashdan holds a bachelor's in mechanical engineering from the University of Manchester and a doctorate in mechanical engineering from Imperial College, London.

Benoist Thirouard Thirouard is the head of the engine system analysis department at IFP. Recently, he is involved with the development of new combustion processes and the application of optical diagnostics in internal combustion engines as a research engineer and project manager.

Thirouard holds a master's in internal combustion engineering at the IFP Postgraduate School in Paris, and a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the Sloan Automotive Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
