Diesel Particulate Authors Win American Ceramic Society's Presentation Award

February 2005
ETD's Mark Stewart and David Rector and ESTD's Gary Maupin and George Muntean won first place in the American Ceramic Society's national technical paper presentation contest. This award is based on the paper's presentation at the annual meeting as well as a technical peer review. Their paper, "A Mechanistic Model for Particle Deposition in Diesel Particulate Filters Using the Lattice-Boltzmann Technique," describes the computer model they developed to predict the shapes and locations of soot deposits within diesel exhaust filters. This model will help elucidate the microscopic workings of these devices, which trap particulates linked to serious health and environmental issues. Congratulations, Mark, David, Gary, and George!
