Joe Drallmeier wins ASME Internal Combustion Engines Student Presentation Competition

Joe Drallmeier, senior in mechanical engineering, has been chosen as a winner of the Undergraduate Student Presentation Competition.  His presentation, "Ignition Delay in Low Temperature Combustion," was reviewed and evaluated by a three-person committee consisting of professional researchers in the field of internal combustion engines.  The research he is presenting is based on the work he did over two summer internships at the National Transportation Research Center (NTRC) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. 

Joe is invited to present his work in the undergraduate student session at the ASME Internal Combustion Engine Division's Fall Technical Conference in October.  As part of his award, he will be presented with a $3000 check at the conference, reimbursed up to $1500 for travel expenses, and his conference registration fee will be waived.
