The Technical Society of Knoxville will meet on December 10, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Knoxville. The speaker will be Dr. Sudarsanam Suresh Babu. As you may guess, he was educated in India and the United Kingdom and is now the UT/ORNL Governors chair professor of Advanced Manufacturing, Tickle College of Engineering, UTK. The subject of his talk will be application of computational models for qualification of manufactured components.
If you don’t know about the Governor’s Chairs program it “brings exceptionally accomplished researchers to Tennessee.”
Funded by the state and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the program attracts top researchers to broaden and enhance the unique research partnership that exists between the University of Tennessee—the state’s flagship university—and the nation’s largest multi-program laboratory. The program seeks to hire as many as twenty scientists for existing institutes operated jointly by UT and ORNL in the areas of advanced manufacturing, advanced materials, biological sciences, energy sciences, nuclear security, and urban design.
Dr. Babu is probably the world’s best person to ask about welding dissimilar metals and he is applying computers to manufacturing.
Attending Technical Society programs is an excellent way to keep abreast of changing technology. This program qualifies as a professional development program.(PDH).
