Lehigh sweeps AWS grad student poster competition

Lehigh MSE students Daniel Bechetti, Erin Barrick, and Robert Hamlin won all three places in the graduate student poster competition at the American Welding Society (AWS) Conference in November. Their advisor is John DuPont.

In the AWS Poster Session at the conference, students present their research results using photomicrographs, tables, systems architecture, and other illustrative materials. Dan won first place for “Microstructural Evolution and Creep-Rupture Behavior of A-USC Alloy Fusion Welds.” Erin placed second for “Phase Transformations and Mechanical Properties of Fusion Welds in 10 wt% Nickel Steel.” Robert won third place for “Microstructural Evolution and Mechanical Properties of Simulated Heat Affected Zones in Cast Precipitation Hardened Stainless Steels 17-4 and 13-8+Mo.”

The AWS was founded in 1919 with a mission to advance the science, technology, and application of welding and allied joining and cutting processes, including brazing, soldering and thermal spraying.
