Dr W Brian James, Ph.D. has received the Frank W Reinhart Award from the ASTM International Committee on Metal Powders And Metal Powder Products. James, who joined ASTM in 1986, was recognised for his contributions to the standardisation of terminology for the metal powder industry.

According to ASTM International, the award reflects his leadership and commitment to developing consistent and coherent terms for the committee. James has previously received the Award of Merit, the Distinguished Service Award, and two Awards of Appreciation from the committee.

Prior to his retirement, James served as Manager of International Technical Service for Hoeganaes Corporation, as a product development engineer for GKN Technology, as a development engineer for Round Oak Steel Works, among other roles. He holds both a Bachelor’s and Doctorate degree in metallurgy from the University of Manchester’s Institute of Science and Technology.
