Frauke Hogue, Hogue Metallography
Frauke Hogue, FASM, received her education in metallography and testing of materials in Berlin, Germany.

In 1967 she moved to the Los Angeles area and worked for Voi-Shan, a manufacturer of aerospace fasteners, in the Quality Control laboratory for 10 years. 1981 Frauke became an independent consultant in metallography, working mainly in the greater Los Angeles area, providing metallographic services to failure analysis companies.

Since 1985 she has been teaching intensive courses at ASM International and at companies throughout the United States and abroad. Frauke developed "Practical Interpretation of Microstructures" in 1998 which consists of a collection of about 300 mounts and a notebook of annotated images of various materials and conditions. This was followed by "Metallography for Fasteners" and "Metallography for Failure Analysis".

Additively Manufactured Titanium Artworks
Titanium and titanium alloys are advanced metallic materials that are uniquely suited to the manufacture of long-lasting artworks. Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D Printing offers unprecedented design freedom and manufacturability for the manufacture of intricate and complex designs of artworks. This talk discusses a range of selected examples of titanium artworks additively manufactured by selective laser melting (SLM) and selective electron beam melting (SEBM) processes. It is shown that additive manufacturing by either SLM or SEBM has enabled the design and manufacture of titanium artworks with remarkable fine features.

Dr Tingting Song is a research fellow working at Centre for Additive Manufacturing, School of Engineering,  RMIT University, Australia. She completed her PhD on Materials and Manufacturing Engineering at RMIT in 2016. Her research has been focusing on the development of low-cost and high-performance Ti-alloys via metal additive manufacturing. She also does research on biomimetic design and advanced manufacturing of functional porous metallic materials. Up to 2019, she has one Australian Patent, two book chapters and 27 peer-reviewed journal papers (ten first-authored) in major journals in the field including Acta Materialia, Corrosion Science and Electrochimica Acta.
