Dr. Qing and Dr. Xu receive prestigious AFS Howard F. Taylor Award

Every year, the American Foundry Society recognizes several members of the metalcasting community for their accomplishments and contributions to the industry. The awards celebrate lifetimes of service, impactful research, volunteer leadership, and innovation.

AFS’s Howard F. Taylor Award was established to recognize a paper presented at the annual Metalcasting Congress that has the greatest long-range technical significance in the field of cast metals technology. There are two Taylor Award winners this year, the first of which is: “Structure of Spheroidal Graphite Nuclei and Spheroidizing Mechanism of Graphite in Mg-Treated Ductile Iron” by Dr. JingJing Qing and Dr. Mingzhi Xu of Georgia Southern University.

Dr. Qing is an assistant professor in the Manufacturing Engineering department. Dr. Xu is an assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering department. We congratulate this dynamic collaborative team on their accomplishment.
