About the Editor
Dr. Arthur C. Reardon earned his bachelor's degree in physics and mathematics in 1986 at the State University of New York College at Oswego. He later earned his M.S. in mechanical and aerospace sciences, and his Ph.D. in materials science at the University of Rochester in upstate New York. He is an experienced professional in materials science, engineering, and metallurgy with extensive work experience in research and development, alloy design, process metallurgy, mechanical engineering, material selection, and customer technical support. Dr. Reardon has worked in the industry for over 18 years; more than ten years were spent working as a senior process metallurgist at Crucible Specialty Metals where he led projects in the melting, forging, rolling, finishing, and inspection operations, and provided metallurgical support for the annealing and heat treating operations; this included processing of a large number of 300 and 400 series stainless steels, valve steels, tool steels, high speed steels, and a variety of other specialty steel grades. He worked closely with the members of the research division on the design and development of state-of-the-art alloys using both traditional air-melt and powder metallurgy processing techniques.
Dr. Reardon worked as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering at Syracuse University where he taught a junior level engineering course entitled Materials, Properties, and Processing for nine consecutive years. He earned his professional engineering license in the discipline of metallurgy, and is licensed in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. He has numerous technical publications in refereed scientific journals spanning subjects from low temperature physics and fracture mechanics to the simulation of atomic solidification processes and laser theory. He has been a member of ASM International since 1988, and currently serves as a member of the ASM International Technical Books Committee.
