HOST: Nate Bulcroft
Title: ASM Materials Platform for Data Science – Success Stories: High Temperature Oxidation - Inconel 625
This webinar series will highlight unique Success Stories of users that utilized the ASM Materials Platform for Data Science (MPDS) to solve complex materials science challenges. In this webinar, we will explore the Success Story of an Engineer tasked with solving an application issue in the power generation industry.
Success Story background:
Application: High-Temperature Oxidation for Valves in Steam Turbines
Material: Inconel 625 (IN625)
Application Issue: As a result of high-temperature oxidation, the valve was sticking and causing an immediate forced outage for end-users
MPDS User: An Engineer responsible for finding a remedial solution to the high-temperature oxidation and establishing the valve's desired operating performance
We will emphasize the problem solving methodology that the Engineer went through in the process of solving this high-temperature oxidation challenge. Although this is a Success Story based on an application in the power generation industry, the audience will relate to the many technical challenges associated with solving a complex materials challenge. Through the problem solving methodology process, we will 1) Define the Problem, 2) Gather What We Know, 3) Identify the Unknown, 4) Experiment & Research, and 5) Gather Facts & Develop Actions.
The webinar presentation will explain the complicated technical challenges and the ways that the ASM Materials Platform for Data Science was an irreplaceable resource for solving the problem in a much more timely and effective manner, rather than utilizing other search-engine-type methods of research. MPDS is the digital continuation of the Pauling File and the world's largest and most comprehensive repository of the inorganic materials data comprised of phase diagrams, crystal structures, and a broad range of properties – physical, mechanical, electrical, optical, magnetic, to name a few.
Speaker: Ray Fryan – Executive Director of New Product Development, ASM International
Ray Fryan joined ASM after a 37 year career with The Timken Company and TimkenSteel Corporation., serving in technology, manufacturing, quality, and business development leadership roles, the most recent of which was as Vice President of Technology and Quality. Ray's ICME vision led to the creation and development of an ICME-capable team who created innovative new products - including ultra-pure fatigue resistant clean steels, and an award-winning family of high strength/high toughness alloys. As Executive Director of New Product Development, Ray is a key member of the cross-functional Chief Technology Office team, bringing that experience, leadership, and vision, to enhance and expand ASM International's product offerings.
Ray is a graduate of Grove City College, and completed both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Material Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. A native of northeast Ohio, and a Jackson Township resident, Ray's family includes his wife of 38 years, Peggy; two grown children, RJ (Laura) and Brigitte (Chris), and 5 grandchildren. Ray enjoys woodworking, non-competitive golf, and competitive distance running; he has finished 12 Boston Marathon events, including 7 with his daughter (most recently the Virtual Boston Marathon on Saturday 9/12).
