2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Failure, and a Career That is Anything But: An LMD Symposium Honoring J. Wayne Jones: Organized by Victoria Miller; Michael Caton; Nikhilesh Chawla; Trevor Harding; Paul Krajewski; Tresa Pollock

To study materials performance is to push materials to their limits—in creep, in fatigue, and in other demanding environmental conditions. It is to push materials to failure, then to engineer against those failure mechanisms. Over the course of Professor J. Wayne Jones’ career, he advanced the state of the art in the study of failure both for creep and fatigue. In the realm of fatigue, he is one of the pioneers of ultrasonic fatigue testing, demonstrating the existence of a fatigue limit for fcc metals in the ultra-high cycle regime. He has worked on a wide range of materials, from light alloys such as magnesium and aluminum to heavier alloys such as nickel superalloys, to less traditional materials such as metal matrix composites and intermetallics. Later in his career, Professor Jones partnered with the Detroit automotive industry and Thixomat, studying both creep and fatigue in lightweight magnesium alloys. He also worked with the automotive industry to develop lightweight metal matrix composites with high strength and high stiffness. He sought new probabilistic treatments for microstructurally informed fatigue crack nucleation models which could lead to improved lifing predictions. This symposium honors the breadth of his career by seeking talks primarily in the areas of creep and fatigue. Talks discussing microstructure-sensitive predictions or novel testing/prediction methodologies are of particular interest. Throughout his career, Professor Jones had been a devoted teacher, not only in the classroom but to everyone he interacts with. Just as he has helped to develop alloy systems toward maturity, he has helped many generations of students and young researchers to achieve academic maturity. The Light Metals Division is honored to celebrate his career with this symposium.

2021 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts — Concurrent Alloy Design and Processing Science: An LMD Symposium Honoring Raymond Decker: Organized by Victoria Miller; Eric Nyberg; J. Brian Jordon; Wilhelmus Sillekens; Neale Neelameggham; Vineet Joshi

The most impactful developments in materials science are rarely just a new material or a new process; it is the simultaneous and complementary advancement of alloy and process together that can drive an innovation into the marketplace. Few researchers have adopted and been as successful with this design philosophy as Ray Decker. Over his more than 50 years of experience as a research metallurgist, he has applied this over a wide range of alloys. His work in superalloys revealed alloying strategies for improved strength via coherency hardening. At the same time, his work revealed that trace elements from the crucible could play a role in the mechanical properties of the alloy. Developments in alloying strategy and improved heat treatments were equally critical in his work as a co-inventor of maraging steel. In his most recent venture, he has applied this philosophy to Mg alloys, developing and broadly commercializing thixomolding technology to obtain refined microstructures with high strength and retained ductility that are able to be thermomechanically processed without developing a deleterious amount of crystallographic texture. He has taken this processing technology and combined it with alloy design, resulting in his recent development of the BioMg 250 for bioabsorbable surgical implants. Thixomolding (or magnesium injection molding), as a light-alloy processing technology, was globalized by the vision of Ray and his partners in the commercialization of the semi-solid process through their company, Thixomat LLC. Leading Thixomat, Ray expanded the use of this technology from a few dozen thixomolding machines, to today where there are hundreds if not thousands of semi-solid, thixomolding machines through Thixomat and their affiliates. This has resulted in millions of parts for the video, cell phone, automotive, computer and other industries being produced with improved properties, integrated part design and net-shape manufacturing. Over his career, Ray Decker has made critical technological advances to address challenges including reducing environmental damage, conserving energy, and making more effective orthopedic devices. In addition to his contributions as a technologist, Ray has consistently taken a long-term vision for his work by involving graduates and undergraduate students through strong collaborations with university faculty and volunteering through his professional societies. His career is certainly greater than the sum of its parts, it is the Light Metals Divisions great honor to his lifetime of achievements at TMS 2021. This symposium honors the theme of Dr. Decker’s career by accepting papers on the intertwined development of alloying and processing of metallic materials, with preference for application-driven research.

2019 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: TMS-DGM Symposium on Lightweight Metals: A Joint US-European Symposium on Challenges in Light Weighting the Transportation Industry: Organized by Eric Nyberg; Wilhelmus Sillekens; Juergen Hirsch; Norbert Hort

The recent demand for lightweight metals (including aluminum and magnesium alloys) has seen historically high growth rates due in part to their role in meeting the continuously increasing requirements for improved fuel efficiency and reduced green-house gas emission for transport vehicles. In line with that, research and development efforts are leading to notable advances in these materials, their processing as well as in their application, that justify a symposium on its own. This joint symposium between TMS and DGM (the German Materials Society) welcomes contributions relating to its title that cover – but are not limited to – sustainable use of lightweight metals in the design and tailoring of monolithic and composite cast, wrought and additive materials, as well as in the manufacturing of semi-finished and finished products. Especially welcomed are contributions with a possible scientific and technological relevance across the different material classes (e.g., DC- and twin-roll casting, rheo- and shape casting, extrusion, forging and warm forming, multi-material joining, hybrid lightweight design and performance, analytical and modeling approaches). Because this symposium is co-sponsored by the Al and Mg committees the papers presented will be published in their respective proceedings. For magnesium-related titles, in keeping with the long-standing tradition of presenting the most recent and highest quality work on magnesium, this symposium features a collection of manuscripts in an edited book entitled Magnesium Technology 2019. This book features the finest and latest breaking articles in magnesium research from the past year and is listed with the main indexing services including Elsevier Engineering Index and Thomas Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, as well as published as a Google eBook online, making its articles readily searchable and available on the web and citable.

2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Magnesium Alloy Development: An LMD Symposium in Honor of Karl Kainer: Organized by Norbert Hort; Alan Luo

Magnesium alloys play a key role as lightweight materials for automotive, aerospace, 3C industries and even as a biodegradable material for medical implants. However, each of these areas of applications has its own requirements on the property profile. Therefore the alloys have to be designed according to the required property profile. This has to cover the influence of alloys e.g. on mechanical properties, corrosion behavior, deformability etc but also on processing steps. Additionally there is a need in prediction performance of alloys and to validate this with appropriate computational approaches. The scope of this symposium will be the description of magnesium alloy design from the selection of alloying elements, processing steps towards selected applications, the performance of alloys during service and how the get recycled. These real life approaches will be accompanied by modelling and simulation approaches to predict the microstructure and properties.
