WARRENDALE, Pa., June 4, 2015 –

SAE International’s book, “Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications,” is honored with a 2015 APEX Award of Excellence for Publication Excellence.

The APEX Awards are an annual competition for publishers, editors, writers and designers who create print, web, electronic and social media. The awards are based on excellence in editorial content, graphic design, and the success of the entry – in the opinion of the judges – in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. The 2015 competition included 1,851 entries (120 in the Print Media category).The APEX judges saw only the most promising publications that professional communicators could enter.

Written by Lyn R. Zbinden, a mechanical engineer and glass specialist, “Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications,” narrows the gap between the reader and a technical subject by using language that is easy to understand, a good variety of examples, and a series of invaluable reference design tables. The book also addresses the theme of glass from the manufacturing stage to the design, installation, and warranty aspects. It also flags, along the way, the pitfalls and the important questions to ask. More importantly, it provides the reader with practical ways to solve the not-so-obvious problems associated with the use of automotive glass.
