Ivor Jenkins Award to be presented to Dr Brian James

October 15, 2014


The UK’s Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) has announced that the recipient of its 2014 Ivor Jenkins Medal award is Dr W. Brian James CEng FIMMM FAPMI FASTM. The prestigious award is presented to individuals in recognition of a significant contribution that has enhanced the scientific, industrial or technological understanding of materials processing or component production using particulate materials.

The award will be presented to Dr James on October 15 during a ceremony at the IOM3’s headquarters in London.    

In a career spanning over 40 years in both the UK and USA, Dr James has become widely known and highly respected in the Powder Metallurgy (PM) structural parts and Powder Forged (PF) sectors of the industry. He has developed and commercialised new PM and PF material grades, developed the first ever production PF connecting rod at GKN and has led many material development programmes at Hoeganaes Corporation in the USA.

Dr James has been extremely active for many years in PM standards development with MPIF, ASTM and ISO committees, and has provided regular training programmes on PM technology. He has participated in organising committees for many conferences and was Co-Chair of the organising committee at this year’s PM World Congress in Orlando.

During his career Dr James has been a strong contributor of technical papers to major international PM conferences and to PM journals. He was recently appointed as the new Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Powder Metallurgy and will begin this role at the end of 2014.
