Dr. Sung-Hoon Jung (formerly graduate student at GIFT, now in POSCO Technical Research Laboratories) and Dr. Youn-Bae Kang (associate professor, GIFT) are the recipients of 2017 Marcus A. Grossman Young Author Award, by ASM International.
The Marcus A. Grossmann Young Author Award was established in 1960 in recognition of Dr. Grossmann's accomplishments and especially in recognition of his abiding interest in and encouragement of younger metallurgists and materials engineers whose paper has been selected as the best of those published in a specific volume of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions. The author must be under 40 years of age on January 1 of the year in which the paper was published.
The paper was published in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B in 2016 (http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11663-016-0699-5), and reports the authors' research results for ferrous scrap recycling as one of efforts in developing environmental friendly steelmaking processes. Cu and Sn in the ferrous scrap are known to be harmful to final steel products. The authors carried out experimental and theoretical study in order to elucidate evaporation reaction mechanism of Cu and Sn from liquid steel, and to develop a reaction rate model which predicts evaporative refining speed. The paper was also chosen as "Editor's choice for Open Access" by Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B, and "This week's featured article" by International Metallographic Society.
This award will be presented in MS&T 2017, Pittsburgh, USA in this October.
