MAS Director Emma Bullock heads up the Smithsonian Science Education Academy for Teachers

In early August, 2017, a group of 21 teachers from around the US took part in the Smithsonian Science Education Academy for Teachers (SSEATs) on Earth’s History and Global Change. This program is designed to introduce K-12 teachers to world-class scientists, strategies for science education, and provide resources to take science back to their classrooms. […]

  • MAS Webinar: Approaches to Additive Manufacturing Materials Characterization at ORNL’S MDF Part 2

    April 29, 2021  3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Please join us for our next MAS webinar at 3pm Eastern Time (US and Canada) on April 29th. Donovan Leonard will present Approaches to Additive Manufacturing Materials Characterization at ORNL’S MDF Part 2. No registration is required.

    The link to attend the April webinar is here: April webinar
    A flyer for the April event can be found here: Flyer

    Webinar description: 
    The idea behind this two part webinar by the Microanalysis Society is to open the doors of a DoE user facility, the ORNL Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF), and show others how materials characterization is being done on materials relevant to additive manufacturing. Techniques like X-ray CT, FESEM, TKD, EBSD, EDS, WDS are applied at MDF to determining solidification microstructures on the nanoscale and presence of hot tearing in larger millimeter scale builds.

    April schedule:

    Donovan N. Leonard; “Additive Manufactured Inconel 738 Turbine Blades: A needle in a haystack” (300-315pm)

    Andres Marquez-Rossy: “Xray CT at the ORNL Manufacturing Demonstration Facility” (315-330pm)

    Amy Godfrey: “Laser Powder Bed AM 316L Elemental Segregation During Rapid Solidification of Single Weld Pools” (330-345pm)

    Kevin Sisco: “AM AlCuCeX Alloys, Microstructures and 2nd Phases: No Easy Task” (345-400pm)

    We hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please send them to: masmembership@the-mas.org.
