Keynote Speaker I
Ultrasonic characterization of microstructure with applications for hybrid additive manufacturing of metals
Joseph A. Turner | Robert W. Brightfelt Professor of MME, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
About the Speaker
Joseph A. Turner is currently the Robert W. Brightfelt Professor of Mechanical and Materials Engineering and Director of the Nano-Engineering Research Core Facility (NERCF) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). He received his B.S. (Eng. Sci.) and M.Engr. (Eng. Sci. Mech.) degrees from Iowa State University and his Ph.D. (Theoretical and Appl. Mech.) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). After a postdoctoral experience at UIUC, he served as an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellow at the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing (IZFP) in Saarbrücken, Germany before joining UNL. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and recipient of the Wilhelm Bessel Forschungspreis from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. His expertise in ultrasonic scattering has applications for many types of microstructures including those found in additively manufactured metals.
Keynote Speaker II
In-Space Inspection Needs: Opportunities for NDE tools such as x-ray CT for additively manufactured parts, in-situ resource utilization, geological applications, and more.
Dr. Justin S. Jones | Senior Materials Engineer , NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
About the Speaker
Dr. Justin S. Jones is the NDE Subject Matter Expert and a senior Materials Engineer for the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. An alumnus of the Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Jones has worked at NASA GSFC since 2010. Aside from regular duties as GSFC’s NDE lead, Dr. Jones has recently focused efforts on the NDE of additively manufactured parts, NDE in support of geology for planetary exploration, and advocating the use of NDE inspection tools for in-space applications.
