ASM International and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) have collaborated to present the book "Transformations: Selected works of G.B. Olson on Materials, Microstructure, and Design," a collection of the selected works of Dr. Greg B. Olson, FASM, in honor of his 70th birthday in 2017. This collection highlights his influential contributions to the understanding of martensite transformations and the development and application of a systems design approach to materials.

ASM International and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) have collaborated to present the book Transformations: Selected works of G.B. Olson on Materials, Microstructure, and Design.

“Greg has been a great friend and inspiration, a true scholar and a gentleman. I was able to discuss science with him. I sometimes felt inadequate afterward, though never disheartened.”

ASM International and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) have collaborated to present a collection of the selected works of Dr. Greg B. Olson. Papers chosen for the collection were selected by editors Carelyn E. Campbell, Michele V. Manuel, and Wei Xiong with input from Dr. Olson. The papers are organized into two parts, Martensite and Materials Design.

Part I: Martensite, with an Introduction by Sir Harry Bhadeshia, emphasizes Dr. Olson’s work to develop a dislocation theory for martensite transformations, to improve the understanding of the statistical nature of martensite nucleation, and to expand the use of quantitative microscopy to characterize phase transformations.

Part II: Materials Design, with an Introduction by Dr. Charles Kuehmann, FASM, focuses on the application of a systems design approach to materials and the development of integrated computational design curriculum for undergraduate education.

Harry Bhadeshia states in his introduction, “Greg has been a great friend and inspiration, a true scholar and a gentleman. I was able to discuss science with him. I sometimes felt inadequate afterward, though never disheartened.”

"Transformations: Selected works of G.B. Olson on Materials, Microstructure, and Design" ($149.00, $129.00 ASM Members, 547 pages, hardcover ISBN: 978-1-62708-137-5, eBook EISBN: 978-1-62708-138-2) is available at http://www.asminternational.org/transformations or by calling the ASM International Service Center at 800.336.5152.
