Texas Materials Institute and the MS&E Graduate Program is proud to announce that Ph.D. candidates Kate Rader and Emily Brady have recently been awarded Outstanding Poster in the 2019 TMS (The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society) Baldesmithing Competition. This competition was held at the 2019 TMS Annual Meeting in San Antonio last week.
The TMS Bladesmithing program makes such concepts as heat transfer, coke combustion, forging, welding, and quenching come to life for university students majoring in a minerals, metals or materials discipline. Every two years, teams of university students from around the world compete to produce a blade by hand hammering or trip hammer forging. In alternative years, students have the opportunity to present their current work on bladesmithing topics at the TMS Bladesmithing Symposium, also held at the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition.
Please help us congratulate Kate and Emily on this great accomplishment! You can read the full press release from TMS here.
