2022 Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award
The 2022 Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award has been selected, and this year's winning paper is "Joining of Two-Piece Aluminum Metal Matrix Composite (Al-MMC) Transmission Carrier via Friction Stir Welding” by Logan Smith and Ian Donaldson, GKN Sinter Metals. The paper was selected from among the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the PowderMet2022 conference in Portland and critically evaluated for the prestigious award.
The paper is available for download on the MPIF website. It is also included in Advances in Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials—2022. The authors will be officially recognized during PowderMet2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 18–21, 2023.
The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award (renamed in 2009), was established in 1993 to recognize authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications from those papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual technical conference organized by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International; to enhance the quality of technology transfer in the PM literature by increasing the professional level of papers submitted for the annual technical conference; and, to enhance and promote the science and technology which is fundamental to powder metallurgy products, processes, and materials.
Paper excellence is measured using a system of four quality standards: (1) the paper is scientifically or technically new, innovative, or is a constructive review; (2) has clear presentation in writing, organization, Graphics, format, and has professional integrity; (3) has clear industrial application; and (4) has long-term value.
The recipients of the 2022 Metal Additive Manufacturing Outstanding Technical Paper Award will be featured in a future FocusPM Newsletter.
