I've got the following Problem using the SIAM bibtex style. Consider the following bib entry

  author = {Author One},
  title = {Paper Title},
  institution = {My Institute},
  year = {2011},
  number = {XXX/YY-ZZ},
  month = {December},



to generate the bibliography. Then the output is

 A. ONE, Paper title, Tech. Rep. XXX/YY-ZZ, My Institute, December 2011.

How can I remove the "Tech. Rep." from the output? Setting type={} in the bibtex entry does not help and type={~} removes the "Tech. Rep. but inserts an unwanted whitespace before the number.
