May 31 Deadline for Galling Workshop 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 Steve Shaffer, Ph.D., senior research scientist, Battelle Memorial Institute, 505 King Ave., Columbus, OH 43201 (614-424-4960; fax: 7479). Indicate whether the abstract is for oral-only presentation, or if a written manuscript will be submitted for publication in ASTM’s Journal of Testing and Evaluation. //
