Blau Mechanical ( solid ) friction is the resistance to tangential, relative motion between two or more contacting bodies. The implications of this longstudied, yet incompletely understood phenomenon are far-reaching. Friction is both enabling and disabling. It enables us to hold and move objects, to build archways, and to walk across the room, yet in other forms, it reduces the efficiency of engines and other machinery, increasing consumption of oil and other fuels. In seeking to control friction, engineers have used a combination of experience, mechanical design, testing, lubrication, and materials selection. Since the causes of friction vary from one tribosystem to another, friction technology encompasses a class of problems rather than a single, unified field of study. Friction theories based only on contact mechanics or materials properties inadequately predict the wide range of sliding behavior observed in machines. The speaker will summarize multi-disciplinary approaches to understanding sliding friction, exemplify friction control in personal safety devices, and describe the Department of Energy s interest in fuel efficiency and braking systems of cars and trucks. About the speaker Peter J. Blau is a native of Reading, Pennsylvania. He earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in metallurgy and materials science from Lehigh University and a Ph.D. in metallurgical engineering from The Ohio State University. His career in materials research and development has ranged from lunar soil to aircraft manufacturing technology to friction, lubrication, and wear (tribology). He has worked at the U.S. Air Force Materials Laboratory, the National Bureau of Standards (now NIST), the Office of Naval Research, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. An active member of ASM, he was past Chairman of the Washington, DC Chapter, past Chairman of the ASM Specialty Materials Division, and chairman of the ASM Handbook volume on Friction, Lubrication, and Wear Technology. He is a Fellow of both ASM and ASTM, and currently serves as Chairman of ASTM Committee G-2 on Wear and Erosion. His current research, mainly supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, focuses on developing new materials to enhance the fuel-efficiency and safety of heavy trucks. Acknowledgement A portion of this research was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Transportation Technologies, under contract DE- AC05-00OR22725 to UT-Battelle LLC, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Abstract: Processing and Properties of High Conductivity Extruded Honeycomb, by Ben Church Extrusion of oxide powders allows for the fabrication of thin-walled metal articles to produce controlled geometry, low-density copper alloy architectures. Shapes formed with copper oxide powders mixed with alloying oxides are reduced and sintered to produce high relative densities in the thin walls. This technology has produced honeycomb extrusions of various geometries, which are being characterized for heat exchange and other applications. This presentation will discuss the bulk properties of alloys produced by this type of thermo-chemical powder processing and explain behavior based on the final chemistry and microstructure of the alloys. Compositions investigated include Cu, Cu-Ni, and Cu-Ag alloys. Properties such as tensile/yield strength, elongation, thermal conductivity, and microstructure will be compared to materials made by conventional and P/M processing. ASM Materials Camp ASM Materials Camp is a 5-day, lab-based learning experience for 30 students entering their junior or senior year of high school, interested in 3 exploring a possible career in materials science or engineering. The ASM International Materials Camp has been a very successful program. The Atlanta Chapter has been able to place a high school student from the Atlanta Area in the ASM International camp during each of its first two years of operation. We would like to do this again in However, we need the help of the ASM membership to make this opportunity known as widely as possible so that qualified youth high school students can become aware of this fine opportunity. Do you know a bright young person who might qualify and be interested? Perhaps your own child, a neighbor, a school mate of your child, etc. Time is short for the application process since the deadline for final submission to ASM International is March 15, Send your suggestions to the Atlanta Chapter Chairman, Kim B. Spinsby, V; F, The chapter will need suggestions by mid February in order to have time to interview candidates, etc. This weeklong academic camp features highly interactive, lab-based activity tailored to individual student interest areas. Evening social activities include a materials sub-theme (i.e.; tours of local attractions and industry tours, etc.). Students graduate during a special event with chapter, ASM, and Foundation leaders, where they have the opportunity to meet and network, and explore career options. Materials Camp begins with a welcome reception and dinner, where students, faculty and staff get acquainted. Second day opens with an introduction to materials of today and tomorrow, along with a basic overview of materials failures and why/how they occur. The students are then organized into small groups and teamed with a Volunteer Faculty Materials Mentor who works with them throughout the week. A variety of experiments and lab activities such as metallography, mechanical testing, light microscopy, fractography, scanning electron microscopy, image analysis, and chemical analysis are used. The camp concludes with the teams presenting a summary of their findings, including recommended corrective action to members of the ASM Foundation Board, ASM International Board, the entire Materials Mentor Faculty, and their student peers. The program ends with graduation and a dinner. Target Audience * High school students. There are no geographic restrictions. * Highly motivated inquisitive learners with math and science aptitude. ASM Materials Camp cost the student absolutely nothing. Students receive free travel, housing, meals, tuition, entertainment and knowledge. Selection Of Finalists * This is a competitive application process. Students must have basic knowledge of algebra, chemistry, and physics and describe why they want to learn more about engineering and materials science as a possible college major and career. * Experienced practicing engineers review each application to select the best and brightest , highly motivated students who have not yet made a firm decision about a college major or career. * Students must have a strong interest in applied science. Please call Kim Spinsby at V, or at, with your suggestions or comments. ASM Service Awards ASM International has sent to the Chapter Secretary, Gautam R.
