This symposium, arranged by graduate students, will focus on the link between academia and industry research. Relationships between academic institutions and advancing technologies in industry are challenging to navigate because the two have traditionally been seen as distinctly separate research entities. The symposium will address this separation and provide a foundation to explore opportunities for mutually beneficial academic and industry partnerships.

A Prospective Look at the MGI after Five Years
Date: Monday, February 27, 2017
Time: 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location: Room 9, San Diego Convention Center
Sponsored by: TMS Materials Innovation Committee
Organizers: Charles H. Ward, Air Force Research Laboratory; Kevin Hemker, Johns Hopkins University; John Allison, University of Michigan
The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) was launched in the United States just over five years ago. While the initiative calls for revolutionary advances in the speed and cost to market for materials, it reflects a confluence of new capabilities in science and engineering enabled by evolutionary advances in advanced experimental techniques, theory, modeling, computational power, and digital storage and communication over the past several decades. MGI’s strategic plan sets four national goals that call for Enabling a Paradigm Shift in Culture, Integrating Experiments, Computation, and Theory, Facilitating Access to Materials Data, and Equipping the Next-Generation Materials Workforce. This symposium will examine the successes of the MGI to date against these goals and will provide an outlook on where materials science and engineering is headed over the next five years in this context.

Pioneers in Additive Manufacturings
Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location: Room 8, San Diego Convention Center
Organizers: James Foley, Los Alamos National Laboratory; Paul D. Prichard, Kennametal Inc.; Iver E. Anderson, Iowa State University/Ames Laboratory; David L. Bourell, University of Texas at Austin
Additive manufacturing (AM) in the last few years has seen a significant increase in activity due to renewed industrial interest and government encouragement of several types of public/private partnerships, especially in the metals area. While AM is a relatively new materials processing technology, its roots go back at least a couple decades when it was a new processing research area, described as "3-D Printing" or "Rapid (Metal) Prototyping." Many of the people who are currently innovating new materials solutions and applications were infants or not born yet when key processing problems were being solved. While some of the pioneering work was conducted with stereo lithography of polymers, many of the process technologies for metal "freeform fabrication" were an extension of thermal spray deposition, atomization spray deposition, laser cladding, various welding (e.g., hard-facing build-up) processes, and binder-assisted powder metal sintering. This symposium intends to invite pioneers in the field of additive manufacturing along with current innovators in the field to present ground-breaking work that solved materials problems and enabled highly advanced manufacturing production. Contributed papers highlighting past, current, or future problems and solutions in AM also are encouraged.

Applications of Process Engineering Principles in Materials Processing, Energy and Environmental Technologies
An Extraction & Processing Division Symposium in Honor of Professor Ramana G. Reddy
This symposium, which honors Professor Ramana Reddy, will provide a forum where industrial, research institutes, and university professionals can interact and exchange with other stakeholders to facilitate the advancement of materials processes and engineering. The impact of Reddy's work and achievements is in the introduction and application of process engineering principles to the quantitative description of materials processing reactions, and industrial operations. His contributions include the development of the Reddy-Blander model, by which the impurities capacities of oxide melts can be predicted a priori with the fundamental structure and thermodynamic properties data of melts. He has formulated quantitative methodologies based on first principles of thermodynamics, phase equilibria, and kinetics to: design of slags and fluxes for production and purification of metals and alloys; development of novel ionic liquid electrolytes for materials processing; design materials for Fuel Cells and Capacitors; use of thermodynamic approaches to predict thermos-physical properties of materials for industrial applications; nuclear energy waste separation and remediation; and thermal energy storage.

Materials by Design
A Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division Symposium Honoring Greg Olson on the Occasion of his 70th Birthday
The foundation of computational materials design and integration of computational materials engineering (ICME) have been pioneered by Professor Greg Olson over the last thirty years. Olson has successfully demonstrated the use of a systems design approach for designing new materials by calculating optimum composition and processing routes to achieve desired materials properties. This approach has dramatically reduced the time and cost of the alloy development process. This symposium is dedicated to Olson on the occasion of his 70th birthday. A series of invited papers will be presented on the topics of:
  • Martensitic transformations
  • Transformation induced plasticity and its application to ductility and fracture toughness
  • Kinetics of coupled diffusional/displacive transformations
  • Electronic basis of embrittlement mechanisms in metals
  • Structure-property relations
  • Applications of high resolution microanalysis
