ABC's Fall Event was a Big Hit Members had a great time dining and socializing at ABC's annual Fall Event "Hot Glass, Cool Night" at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma. Guests had a wonderful evening watching the glass blowing demonstration in the Hot Shop, taking fun group photos in the photo booth, and viewing the stunning glass installations in the museum. ABC recognized member milestones, the 2017 Member of the Year Dawn Lanz (Sea-Tac Electric), and Young Professional of the Year Doug Jones (Haggard Electrical Contractors). Thanks to our sponsors for making this night a success: Photo Booth Sponsors Sea-Tac Electric and Tradesmen International; Bar Sponsor Peterson Sullivan LLP; Dinner Sponsor Saybr Contractors; and Dessert…

[1702.04807] Synthesis and Hydrogen Sorption Characteristics of Mechanically Alloyed...
Title: Synthesis and Hydrogen Sorption Characteristics of Mechanically Alloyed Mg(NixMn1-x)2 Intermetallics (Submitted on 15 Feb 2017) Abstract: New ternary Mg-Ni-Mn intermetallics have been successfully synthesized by High Energy Ball Milling (HEBM) and have been studied as possible materials for efficient hydrogen storage applications. The microstructures of the as-cast and milled alloys were characterized by means of X-ray Powder Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) both prior and after the hydrogenation process, while the hydrogen storage characteristics (P-c-T) and the kinetics were measured by using a commercial and automatically controlled Sievert-type apparatus. The hydrogenation and dehydrogenation measurements were performed at four different temperatures 150-200-250-300oC and the results showed that the kinetics for both the hydrogenation and…
