Dr. Ram K. Iyengar has a Doctorate degree in Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science and Master's degree in Metallurgical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Iyengar was Managing Director of National Industrial Development Corporation (India), which provided engineering and technology transfer services to industrial ventures in developing and emerging countries. He was Director General (Adjunct) of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (India) from 1986 to 1992. This is a network of industrial and basic research laboratories and institutes in India. From 1992 to present Dr. Iyengar has provided consulting services to several metal producing companies in USA including, Lukens Inc, USS, Bethlehem Steel, and Special Metals Corporation and has introduced several innovations in metallurgical and surface treatment processes. He has developed several applications in surface engineering with the ESD process.

Dr. Harish M. Dalal, acquired a Ph.D. in Materials Science from MIT in 1970. He has worked for over 30 years in various industries during which he developed surface treatments for improvement of wear and fatigue resistance of materials. From 1972-1978 he worked at SKF Industries on Navy and Army funded programs. He successfully demonstrated the ability of Ion Implantation and Cladding in reducing wear and improving fatigue life of bearings. From 1978-1980 he worked as the Director of Technology at KSM Industries where he developed surface treatment to improve the productivity and life of cold forming dies. At General Electric Space Division during 1980-1989, he worked as Chief Engineer in charge of Materials Selection and Processing. Here he developed coatings to improve vacuum sealing capability and fretting wear resistance of Titanium Alloys. From 1989-1994 he was the President of Jaya Hind Sciaky in Pune, India where he guided the development of plated coatings to improve weldability of steel components for electrical applications. As Director of Technology at Tristar Inc., (1994-1998) he guided the development of processing of glass containers for perfume bottles. The modified process was able to create a high surface compressive surface stress thereby increasing the burst pressure of the glass bottle form 175 psi to over 300 psi without significantly increasing the wall thickness.

Dr. John H. Bucher, has worked for over 30 years in the metals industry and has considerable experience in the rolling, heat treatment and finishing of metals. He was Vice President of Technology of Lukens Inc., a major producer of high performance steel plates for the Navy and Army. The PI has developed several high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels containing microalloying elements to develop strength, fatigue and corrosion resistance. Dr. Bucher has developed new steel compositions to meet the specifications of the Navy, Army, and other demanding customers.

Mr. Pani C. Panigrahy has experience in the primary production and technology of specialty metals and alloys. His technical expertise spans high temperature alloys, corrosion resistant, stainless, tool, alloy and carbon steels and other specialty alloys such as magnetic and electrical alloys in ingot, plate, strip, bar, billet, tube and wire rod forms. He was Manager melting operation of Special Metal Corporation, Huntington, director of Technology Firstmiss Steel Inc., Hollsopple, Pa, where he directed all quality assurance and control, analytical, technology and customer technical service. As Manufacturing/Plant Manager, Lockport, N.Y Plant Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, he directed all operating and maintenance functions with ARC/AOD, VIM, ESR and VAR operations producing primary ingots of stainless, tool and super-alloys for sheet, strip and plate applications. He was Superintendent of Melting at AMAX Specialty Metals Corporation, Florham Park, N.J, where he directed start-up and production operations of ARC/AOD, AIM, VIM and ESR for the production of custom alloys. He has a MS- Metallurgical Engineering degree from University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois, M. Tech-Metallurgical Engineering Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India.

Dr. Sudhir Sharma has a Doctorate degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science from Carnegie Mellon University, and Master's degree in Metallurgical Engineering from McMaster University Canada. He developed and commercialized inert gas stirring technology, including design of injection elements, process technology and economics. As research engineer with Bethlehem Steel Corporation, He determined criteria for predicting penetration of molten steel in tuyeres during inert gas injection. He also developed novel techniques to study the fundamental process mechanisms in steemaking with oxygen injection.
