Check out the August 2021 issue of Industrial Heating, featuring the Benefits of Modular Induction Heating Systems, "Additive Drives the Adoption of CT for Nondestructive Thermal Inspection", and much more.
Seebeck discovered that when two dissimilar metals are connected (“junctioned”) together, a minute electric potential will be generated. This phenomenon, known as the Seebeck Effect, is the basis of how a thermocouple functions.
In our final IH Rx Podcast, Dan Herring and I covered some readers’ questions about carburizing. We transcribed and edited that podcast into a two-part article, which is seen here and will continue in the September issue.
Many components and assemblies have internal features that are difficult to inspect, none more so than additively manufactured (AM) parts. Conventional quality control requires samples to be sectioned and subsequently scrapped. However, the advent in the 1980s of X-ray computed tomography (CT) for industrial material analysis and nondestructive testing heralded a new era for inspection of such parts, both internally and externally.
Now fully six months into his term in office, President Biden has made little actual change to many of the trade policies implemented by the previous administration that are still in place today. This leaves manufacturers wondering how to manage their supply chains in the coming months, what to anticipate from overseas import competition and whether to expect a new direction from this White House.
The National Science Foundation’s Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC) supports interdisciplinary materials research and education focusing on fundamental problems in materials science and engineering.

There are 19 such centers across the nation. Each of them addresses research of a scope and complexity requiring the scale, synergy and research talent provided by a campus-based research center. The MRSECs essentially support the materials research infrastructure in the United States; promote collaboration between universities, industry and international organizations; and contribute to the development of a national network of university-based centers in materials research, education and facilities.
