  • Advanced Manufacturing Seminar

    Fri, Mar 19, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Dr. Ming C. Leu, Keith and Pat Bailey Distinguished Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Missouri University of Science and Technology

    Talk Title: Additive Manufacturing of Advanced Ceramics: Technologies, Applications and Opportunities

    Abstract: Ceramics are important engineering materials due to their unique properties such as high hardness, high-temperature resistance, and high-corrosion resistance. Additive manufacturing (AM) of ceramic material is difficult and challenging because of the high melting temperature and flaw-sensitive nature of ceramics. However, through intensive research over the past two decades, significant progress on AM of ceramics has been made. This talk will first review different categories of ceramic AM processes and recent technology advances in each category. Comparisons will be made on the advantages and limitations of each ceramic AM process category in terms of part quality, dimensional accuracy, surface finish, and material flexibility. The practical applications of various ceramic AM processes in relation to the characteristics of each process category will be described. A novel extrusion-based AM process, called Ceramic On-Demand Extrusion (CODE), which was developed in recent years by the seminar speakers research group for fabricating ceramic components with near theoretical density will be presented, including choice of support material and part fabrication with multiple and graded materials. Finally, future research needs and innovation opportunities of ceramic AM will be discussed.

    Biography: The research interests of Dr Leu include additive manufacturing, 3D printing, intelligent robotics and automation, and cyber-physical manufacturing. He has published over 480 papers in referred professional journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Leu has received numerous professional awards including, among others, the International Freeform and Additive Manufacturing Excellence (FAME) Award (2020), ASME Milton C. Shaw Manufacturing Research Medal (2018), University of Missouri President Leadership Award (2017), ASME Blackall Machine Tool and Gage Award (2014), ISFA Hideo Hanafusa Outstanding Investigator Award (2008), ASME Distinguished Service Award (2004), SME University Lead Award (1994), NJIT Harlan J. Perlis Research Award (1993), NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award (1985), SAE Ralph R. Teetor Education Award (1985), as well as several best paper awards.

  • MEGA Student Speaker Series #10: Jasmine Persephone Jupiter

    Fri, Mar 19, 2021 @ 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Student Activity

    Are you a student in the games industry and want to learn about unionization? This Friday, March 19 at 5:00 PM PST, Jasmine Persephone Jupiter will be explaining the basics of labor organizing as well as giving a brief overview of the history of the movement for a games union. Jasmine will be presenting alongside Robin Trach, a fellow organizer with Game Workers of Southern California, former head of MEGA, and a representative from Code-CWA (the initiative that recently organized the union at Google!).

    Why is unionization important? If you're looking to work in the games industry, you may already be familiar with the expectations of 100-hour crunch weeks, high turnover, and pay gaps. The unionization effort aims to protect workers in the game industry and push for better working conditions. The Game Workers of Southern California is one such group dedicated to this cause.

    Game Workers of Southern California (GWSC) is a volunteer-based group of game workers and labor organizers in Los Angeles, Orange County, and the greater Southern California region.
