A Trio of Resources from TMS and Wiley
This month, TMS and Wiley highlight the following publications:
Bulk Nanostructured Materials: Fundamentals and Applications
Ruslan Z. Valiev, Alexander P. Zhilyaev, Terence G. Langdon
Presents results in the area of bulk nanostructured materials and new trends in their severe plastic deformation processing, where these techniques are now emerging from the domain of laboratory-scale research into the commercial production of various bulk nanomaterials.
Fundamentals of Strength: Principles, Experiment, and Applications of an Internal State Variable Constitutive Formulation
Paul S. Follansbee
Explores the underlying theory, mechanistic basis, and implementation of the mechanical threshold stress model.
Hydrometallurgy: Fundamentals and Applications
Michael L. Free
Presents a collection of information that can be used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness with which metals are extracted, recovered, manufactured, and utilized in aqueous media in technically viable and reliable, environmentally responsible, and economically feasible ways.

An Inspiring Last-Minute Gift Idea
If you would like to honor a special colleague or mentor, a donation to the TMS Foundation Annual Appeal in his or her name gives the gift of inspiration to a promising young professional or student. Imagine giving back to someone who has made a difference in your professional life. Both of you can then share in the rewarding feeling that you are making a lasting impact on even more lives through the TMS Foundation.
Your donation will support the many programs, awards, and special projects that the TMS Foundation funds, including:
- Young Professionals Programs
- Student Scholarships and Contests
- Student Travel Grants
- Special Projects, like Comic-tanium™: The Supermaterials of the Superheroes
Learn more about the programs funded by the TMS Foundation.

Submit Nominees for Acta Materialia Awards
Nominations are currently being accepted for three prestigious Acta Materialia awards for 2016: the Acta Materialia Gold Medal Award, the Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal Award, and the Acta Materialia Materials and Society Award. These three awards honor a variety of achievements and are presented to select members of the international scientific community each year.
Tresa Pollock, a TMS member and a past president of the Society, will receive the 2015 Acta Materialia Materials and Society Award at the Honors and Awards Ceremony planned for the TMS 2015 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in March.
TMS invites its members to submit nominees for the 2016 awards through the TMS Awards Nomination form by April 1, 2015. For specific information on each of the three awards and how to submit nominations, visit the “Other Awards” section of the TMS Honors and Awards website.
