Recent Group Activities
DoD-Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference - 11/2015
The Burns Research Group was very active at the 2015 DoD-Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference with Mike McMurtrey giving two talks, while Noelle Co and Zach Harris each gave one. Noelle took home the 2nd place prize in the Milton Levy Category for Corrosion Science for her poster titled "Galvanic Corrosion Induced Fatigue Crack Initiation and Propagation Behavior in AA 7050-T7451." Nice work Noelle! The group enjoyed the sights and food of downtown Pittsburgh during their stay by eating at a few local spots, including the famous Primanti Bros. and Peppi's sandwich shops!
Team Hike and Dinner - 9/2015
The group went on an awesome hike along the Moorman River in the Shenandoah National Park that featured several creek/river crossings and a few good laughs. After the hike, the group enjoyed some excellent food at Crozet's Pizza!
TMS Conference - 3/2015
The Burns Research Group was very active at TMS 2015, with Prof. Burns, Jenny Jones, and Mike McMurtrey all giving talks on their work. Noelle Co and Ryan Donahue also went to TMS, with each presenting a poster on their recent findings. Overall, the conference was a success and everyone had a great time soaking up the sun in Orlando!
Christmas Party - 12/2014
The Burns Research Group, along with Greg Pioszak, had the annual Christmas Party at Prof Gangloff's house. The food was excellent - thank you for hosting Prof. and Mrs. Gangloff!
Teambuilding Hike at Crabtree Falls - 9/2014
The group took a Friday off to explore Crabtree Falls as a teambuilding activity to kick off the new year. The hike went fairly smoothly and the group enjoyed a well-deserved break (and view) once they got to the top. Once the group returned to the bottom, we promptly made our way over to Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton for some good food! Pictures are below:
