Department of Mechanical Engineering Professor Emeritus and founding Director of the Center for Energetic Concepts Development (CECD) Dr. Ronald W. Armstrong was selected to give the keynote lecture at the International Symposium on the Strength of Fine Grained Materials, held at the University of Tokyo from July 16-18.

The symposium, sponsored by the Japan Society of Promotion of Science (JSPS), commemorates the 50-year anniversary of the 133rd Committee of University-Industry Cooperation of JSPS. The symposium aims to further the development of science and technology related to fine-grained materials.

Armstrong’s lecture, Hall-Petch Analysis: Past to Present Nano-Scale Connections, was followed by presentations from 11 other researchers in the field of fine-grained materials. Symposium topics included Hall-Petch relation, inverse Hall-Petch relation, superplasticity, strength of fine-grained steels, strength of fine-grained non-ferrous metals, strength of fine-grained ceramics, and grain boundary segregation and its effects on strength.
