Grad students transform ASM handbook

Graduate students in materials science and engineering at Lehigh contributed nine articles to a section on transformation structures in the ninth volume of the handbook Metallography and Microstructures published recently by ASM International.

The articles were:

-- "Structures by Precipitation from Solid Solution" by Mario Epler.

-- "Spinodal Transformation Structures" by Shane Para.

-- "Ordered Structures" by Jonathan Regina.

-- "Massive Transformation Structures" and "Bainitic Structures" by Matthew Perricone.

-- "Eutectoid Structures" by Brian Newbury.

-- "Ferrous Martensite" by Ryan Deacon.

-- "Nonferrous Martensite" by Frank Gift Jr.

-- "Shape Memory Materials" by Rick Noecker.

The students wrote their papers as part of the course Mat 408: Phase Transformations, which is taught by Arnold R. Marder, the R.D. Stout Distinguished Professor of materials science and engineering.

The students were also advised by Arlan O. Benscoter, metallographer and research scientist in the department of materials science and engineering.

Marder wrote the introduction to the ASM handbook's section on transformation structures. Benscoter co-wrote an article in the section titled "Metallography and Microstructures of Low-Carbon and Coated Steels."

The handbook was published in December 2004. ASM, the Materials Information Society, is the world's premiere organization for materials scientists and engineers.
