Nanomechanical Behaviors of Biomaterials * Surfaces and Biointerfaces: Part I * Electronic, Biological, and Functional Thin Films: Part I
Scale Dependence of the Mechanical Properties and Microstructure of Crustaceans Thin Films as Biomimetic Materials by Devendra Verma, Tao Qu, and Vikas Tomar
More than 20 papers within three technical topics explore the theme of “Biomaterials and Thin Films” in the April issue of JOM. Supplementing this deep technical content
is a JOM: The Magazine feature that previews a few of the themes and recommendations that are being developed as part of the TMS-led project,
Modeling Across Scales: A Roadmapping Study for Connecting Materials Models and Simulations Across Length and Time Scales. Also, make sure to catch this month’s Meet a Member
feature on Walter Petersen, who has developed his own unique style of wire sculpture art.
Twenty papers within two technical topics—Metal Powder for Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
and Progress in Additive Manufacturing—comprise a special issue of JOM focused on the latest
developments in a potential game-changing, emerging technology. JOM: The Magazine also
offers a look to the future with an article introducing this year’s TMS Young Leaders
Professional Development Award recipients, and an update on the TMS Foundation’s support
of the Emerging Leaders Alliance. Also, be sure to read what’s planned for the
2015 Offshore Technology Conference and
TMS’s professional development initiative. And, don’t
miss this month’s Meet a Member on how Gordon Alanko has conveyed his war experiences
in Iraq through poetry.
