Rajendra Bordia of Clemson University is among the winners of an award recognizing papers that make notable contributions to metallurgical or materials science.
Bordia, the George J. Bishop, III Endowed Chair in Ceramic and Materials Engineering, was among eight co-authors to share this year’s Champion H. Mathewson Award from The American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME).
They won for “Anisotropy of Mass Transfer During Sintering of Powder Materials with Pore–Particle Structure Orientation.” The paper ran in the January 2019 edition of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions.
“Many talented individuals have received the Champion H. Mathewson Award, and it’s an honor to be named among them,” Bordia said. “An interdisciplinary team from five institutions came together for the research reported in this paper.”
Kyle Brinkman, chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson, said the award underscores the high quality of research that Bordia brings to Clemson and is a testament to why he is so highly valued in collaborative research projects.
“The Champion H. Mathewson Award is a significant career achievement, and Dr. Bordia is well deserving,” Brinkman said. “I offer him my deepest congratulations.”
In addition to Bordia, the paper’s co-authors include: Elsa Torresani and Eugene A. Olevsky of San Diego State University; Diletta Giuntini of Hamburg University of Technology, Germany; Chaoyi Zhu, Tyler Harrington and Kenneth S. Vecchio of the University of California, San Diego; and Alberto Molinari of the University of Trento, Italy.
The award’s namesake was regarded as “a pioneer of modern physical metallurgy in this country, who laid much of the foundation of our understanding of the working and annealing of metals,” according to AIME.
The team received its award March 2 during the The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS) 2022 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California. TMS is a member society of AIME.
