Lab Engineer Position Description

ArcelorMittal Sponsoring 7th Man Hockey T-shirts

IMG_0768Michigan Tech hockey is pleased to announce a partnership with ArcelorMittal in the 7th Man T-shirt Project. ArcelorMittal has purchased 850 T-shirts for Michigan Tech students to wear at the home-opening series against the University of Michigan on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

“I would like to thank ArcelorMittal and Joe Nowosad (MSE ’87) for sponsoring our 7th Man T-shirts,” Tech hockey coach Mel Pearson said. “Any time you host a team like the University of Michigan, it’s a big deal. It’s going to be an exciting weekend of hockey here at the MacInnes Student Ice Arena, and we’re happy our student section will be covered in gold.”

One hundred of the ArcelorMittal 7th Man T-shirts will be handed out at a live radio remote in the Van Pelt and Opie Library on Wednesday, Oct. 29. The hockey team and coaching staff will be on campus promoting the series against Michigan.

The remaining 750 7th Man T-shirts will be handed out at the Experience Tech student entrance at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena before Friday night’s game.

“We are honored with this opportunity to be the first company to sponsor the 7th Man at Michigan Tech,” Jake Haelfrisch, an engineer at ArcelorMittal said. “ArcelorMittal is very proud to work with such a great partner over the past eight years. The engineers that we’ve hired from Michigan Tech are at all levels of our corporation and this sponsorship is the least we could do to recognize this partnership. We hope that we see an arena filled with Husky Gold. Go Huskies.”

ArcelorMittal employs more than 60 Michigan Tech graduates, and is the world’s leading steel and mining company, with around 232,000 employees in more than 60 countries. They are the leader in all major global steel markets, including automotive, construction, household appliances and packaging. Underpinning all their operations is a philosophy to produce safe, sustainable steel. See the ArcelorMittal website for more information.

“It’s great to see all the Michigan Tech graduates that ArcelorMittal employs,” added Pearson. “They obviously see a value in our students, and we’re thankful that they’re now going to partner our department and team.”

Unplugged: 3D Printing Goes Solar

3D printing guru Joshua Pearce wants nothing more than to provide the means of production to everyone, especially people in developing regions who must get by on very little. But there has been a drawback.

3D printers make all manner of fun and useful things, but they do require electricity. And the grid is notoriously unreliable in many parts of the world. “What do you do if the power goes out while you are right in the middle of printing something?” says Pearce, an associate professor at Michigan Technological University. “It’s not good.”

Ethical Filament: Can Fair Trade Plastic Save People and the Planet?

It’s old news that open-source 3D printing is cheaper than conventional manufacturing, not to mention greener and incredibly useful for making everything from lab equipment to chess pieces. Now it’s time to add another star to the 3D printing constellation. It may help lift some of the world’s most destitute people from poverty while cleaning up a major blight on the earth and its oceans: plastic trash.

MSE Seminar: Properties of Glassy Polymers at the Nanoscale versus the Bulk State

Materials Science and Engineering Department, John & Virginia Towers Distinguished Lecture Series Seminar, Tuesday, October 7, 2014, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm, Room 610 M&M Building;

Donald R. Paul, University of Texas at Austin, Title: Properties of Glassy Polymers at the Nanoscale versus the Bulk State

The need for more energy efficient processes continues to drive interest in polymeric membranes for gas separations; removal of carbon dioxide and other impurities from natural gas is one of the important targets for this technology. There is interest in the discovery of new polymer structures for membranes that are more permeable, more selective or more robust particularly with regard to resisting plasticization by highly soluble gases like carbon dioxide. In general, the best polymers for these applications have high glass transition temperatures.

To achieve commercially attractive levels of flux or productivity, most membranes have an asymmetric or composite structure where the separating layer is very thin, of the order of 100 nm in thickness. It is generally assumed that these thin layers have the same permeation properties as thick films, tens of microns in thickness, which are easily prepared in the laboratory for evaluation of membrane materials. In fact, the usual method for estimating the thickness of the separating layer is to compare its gas permeance or flux to the permeability of a thick film. However, there is growing evidence that thin films of glassy polymers with thicknesses of a few hundred nanometers behave quite differently than thick films. A major factor is the observation that thin glassy films undergo physical aging, i.e., approach towards equilibrium, much more rapidly than do bulk glasses presumably due to high segmental mobility at free surfaces. This presentation will summarize recent evidence concerning the differences between thin and thick films with regard to aging, plasticization and thermal history based on gas permeation observations.
