||May Deadline for Galling Papers
ASTM Committee G02 on Wear and Erosion seeks paper submissions by May 31 for a Workshop
on Galling Test Methods at its upcoming meeting, Nov. 6-8, in
Miami Beach, Fla. The workshop will focus on different methods
of testing materials for galling resistance, as well as fundamental
aspects of galling behavior of materials.
The committee welcomes contributions from authors who perform
galling tests or research on galling of materials. Papers discussing
the comparison of different galling test methods, both analytical
and experimental, are particularly encouraged. It is expected
that the outcome of the workshop will be one or more proposed
standards for galling tests.
Currently there is only one ASTM standard for galling resistance
of materials: G 98, Standard Test Method for Galling Resistance of Materials, last
updated 1996. Authors should submit a one-page maximum abstract
by May 31 to Dr. Steve Shaffer, Senior Research Scientist, Battelle Memorial Institute, 505
King Ave., Columbus, OH 43201 (phone: 614/424-4960; fax: 7479).
Authors are requested to indicate whether they are submitting
the abstract for an oral-only presentation, or for a written manuscript
to also be submitted for publication in ASTMs Journal of Testing
and Evaluation. For written papers, final manuscripts will be
due at the time of the meeting. //
