Anand Senguttuvan and Gord Irons
Congratulations to Anand Senguttuvan and Gord Irons who are the recipients of the 2014 Jerry Silver Award for their work entitled "Model Studies on Slag Metal Entrainment in Gas-Stirred Ladles"
This award was named in honor of Jerry Sliver in recognition of his leadership in the development of student affairs and programs for the Iron & Steel Society. The award is presented to the author of a process metallurgy or product applications technical paper judged to be the best of class by the AIST Metallurgy Technology Division.
This award will be presented during the AIST Metallurgy, Processing, Products & Applications Technology Committee Meeting, co-located with the MS&T 2014 conference in Pittsburgh, PA USA (14 October 2014).
125 inch JHE Lobby Display
The new JHE lobby display was funded by the Faculty of Engineering as well as the VP Research at McMaster University. It is a video wall that measures 125 inches diagonal and has a unique continuous screen without joins or gaps. It is capable of showing full colour video images with an equivalent resolution exceeding Full High Definition (HD).
Individual slides and slide transitions can be animated to make a dynamic and engaging display. The display will be highly visible for people walking into the lobby along the corridor leading south to the JHE annex and will therefore capture a huge audience every day.
This display is the product of start-up company Seamless Display Systems Inc that was the result of student projects in the Xerox Center for Engineering Entrepreneurship and Innovation within the W. Booth School of Engineering Practice at McMaster University.
