Professor German obtained his PhD from the University of California at Davis (1975), He is a Fellow of the American Society for Metals and Fellow of American Powder Metallurgy Institute. His awards

include the Tesla Medal, Nanyang Professorship, Japan Institute for Materials Research

Lectureship, Penn State Engineering Society Outstanding Research Award and Premiere

Research Award, Distinguished Research Award from the Japan Society for Powder Metallurgy,

Kuczynski Prize, and Samsonov Prize. He is listed in several Who's Who and serves as an editor

or key reader for more than 20 journals and held several director positions, including two terms

with APMI, and served on the Fellows Awards Committee of two professional societies.

He has supervised 100 theses, published over 960 articles, 25 patents, and 16 books, including Mathematical Relations in Particulate Materials Processing (2008), Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials Processing (2005), Liquid Phase Sintering (1985), Sintering Theory and Practice (1996), and Powder Injection Molding - Design and Applications (2003). He has edited 19 books and co-chaired more than 30 conferences.

Professor German's research and teaching deal with the net-shape fabrication of engineering materials via sintering techniques as used in powder metallurgy, cemented carbides, and ceramics.

As sintering applications march toward a $30 billion global business, the models for sintering have progressed, but generally follow behind observation. Documentation of the steps needed to build to a quantitative and predictive theory are often missed. Sintering: From Empirical Observations to Scientific Principles partitions sintering applications and observations to show critical turning points required to establish modern sintering as a predictive science.

This book, written by the most cited author in his field, is laced with people, organizations, critical steps, and important formulations in a mixture of history, personalities, and applications. Exploring how insights in seemingly unrelated fields sparked progress, it is also a teaching tool to show where there is success, where there are problems, and how to organize teams to leapfrog to new applications or plateaus of use. Randall German's Sintering: From Empirical Observations to Scientific Principles is a platform for directly addressing the critical control parameters in these new research and development efforts.

  • Shows how the theories and understanding of sintering were developed and improved over time, and how different products were developed, ultimately leading to important knowledge and lessons for solving real sintering problems
  • Covers all the necessary infrastructure of sintering theory and practice, such as atomic theory, surface energy, microstructure, and measurement and observation tools
  • Introduces the history and development of such early sintered products as porcelain, tungsten lamp filaments, bronze bearings, steel automotive components, platinum crucibles and more
