High-Speed Friction-Stir Welding to Enable Aluminum Tailor-Welded Blanks: Yuri Hovanski, et. al.;
Cyrus Wadia, the lead architect of the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) traces the evolution of that effort in a May JOM: The Magazine feature article.
The piece also highlights how TMS has led (and continues to lead) the advancement of an integrated approach to materials and manufacturing innovation.
In another feature, Amy Clarke, TMS Board Director, Membership & Student Development, discusses how TMS is examining and sharing data to promote progress
on diversity and inclusion in the minerals, metals, and materials professions. Developing a more diverse science and engineering workforce for the future
is also a goal of the Adventure in Science program led by Robert Shull, highlighted in this month’s Meet a Member.
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.
