Clarkson team recognized by American Welding Society
POTSDAM -- Clarkson University team receives award for their paper from the American Welding Society.
Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Professors Daryush Aidun and Marcias Martinez, along with Marharyta Pliazhuk ‘20 and graduate student Carlos Reyes have been awarded the Charles H. Jennings Award from the American Welding Society for their paper “In-situ Monitoring of Transient Strain Formation in Vertical Welds”.
This study looks at measurements of strain during manual weldments. The results of the study were validated through collaboration with professor John Goldak and Hossein Nimrouzi from Goldak Technologies, in Ottawa.
This study highlights the formation of complex residual stress fields during welding processes. These residual stresses are localized and can have detrimental effects on structural integrity and remaining useful component life of welded structures.
The study also highlights the importance of the Clarkson team’s collaboration efforts with international partners, as well as their local resources such as those provided by Clarkson’s machine Shop, and certified welder Mark Hebel.
The Charles H. Jennings award is sponsored by the American Welding Society in honor of Charles H. Jennings, who served as American Welding Society’s President from 1951–52. This award is presented for the most valuable paper written by a college student or faculty representative published in the Welding Journal during the previous calendar year
