The TSS President's Award for Meritorious Service recognizes exceptional service to the Thermal Spray Society and the thermal spray community. Nominees should be members of TSS with at least 10 years of service.
Nomination deadline is September 30 each year.
TSS is seeking Board Nominations
The terms of two current members of the ASM Thermal Spray Society Board will expire in 2019. The ASM TSS Awards & Nominations Committee is currently seeking nominations to fill these positions. The Committee is particularly seeking nominees from the government and international community, but nominations are solicited from all segments of the thermal spray community.
TSS is seeking Student Board Members
The TSS Student Board Member positions are open to undergraduate or graduate students, studying or researching in an area closely related to the field of thermal spray technology. Two Students are selected each year.
Berndt leads Australian training facility
Christopher C. Berndt, FASM, TSS-HoF, has been selected to lead the new Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre in Surface Engineering for Advanced Materials (SEAM). The center has been awarded funding by the ARC and matching partners totaling more than $8.39 million. The core Australian university partners are Swinburne University, where Berndt is a distinguished professor, along with the University of South Australia and RMIT University. Berndt is an ASM past president, TSS past president, and former editor of the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology.
TSS, the Thermal Spray Society, is dedicated to the expansion of knowledge, technical information, safety guidelines, and best processes and procedures in this unique and valuable surface application. With an unparalleled international community and network, TSS members have access to a global marketplace that continues to grow. TSS members enjoy a wealth of benefits.
Handbook on Thermal Spray Technology and Cold Spray
The Thermal Spray Technology book is an excellent introduction and guidebook for those new to thermal spray. Expanded selection of applications includes electronics and semiconductors, automotive, energy, and biomedical. Prominent thermal spray markets such as aerospace and industrial gas turbines, and areas of growth such as advanced thermal barrier materials are also reviewed.
This new book, Cold Spray is a highly practical and useful "go-to" resource that presents an in-depth look at the high pressure cold spray process and describes applications in various industries. High Pressure Cold Spray: Principles and Applications is both a comprehensive and technically advanced resource for anyone involved in cold spray technology, from coating design and development to performance of coatings and coated parts in both the laboratory and industrial environments.
