Symposium 50 Years of Characterizing Structural Ceramics and Glasses: Recognizing the Contributions of George Quinn
Sponsorship ACerS
Organizer(s) Jeffrey Swab, Army Research Laboratory
Andrew A. Wereszczak, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Scope This Symposium will honor George Quinn and the numerous contributions he has made to the structural ceramics and glass communities for almost a half century. George began his career in the late 1960s as a student working for the US Army, became a staff engineer in 1973 and joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 1990. He retired in 2009 but continues working as a consultant. George's research has focused on understanding aspects of structural ceramics including: the fundamental relationship between properties, structure and processing; the conception and standardization of mechanical testing procedures; how machining practices and high temperatures affect mechanical response, and; failure and reliability analysis of ceramics and their structures. He led the formation of the Advanced Ceramics Committee within the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), served as Committee Chairman during its influential years of 1986-1997, and led the Versailles Advanced Materials and Standards (VAMAS) Technical Working Area on Ceramics. He has authored or co-authored 22 original ASTM and International Standards Organization (ISO) standard test methods including those for hardness, fracture toughness, fractography and strength. He is the author of the very-often-cited "Guide to Fractography of Ceramics and Glasses". George thankfully continues to share his knowledge and expertise by teaching the “Mechanical Properties of Ceramics and Glasses” course for the American Ceramic Society and co-teaching the "Fractography of Glasses and Ceramics" course at Alfred University.
