"Peaks of Excellence" By Joseph M. Marchello, Chancellor Today's world is complex and the country's technological needs are diverse.

To provide the best possible education for engineering and science students, UMRolla has assembled a faculty whose interests lie not only in teaching but in research. Much of this research at UM-Rolla has reached or is at the point of national and international stature. There will be oppor~unities in the period ahead to build on these areas of instruction and research in order to further develop the technological base of the country and to gain added recognition for the efforts of UM-Rolla .

"Thrust for Excellence" We are making a concerted effort to solicit private support toward a "Thrust for Excellence" at UM-Rolla in areas of faculty expertise. Gifts offer significant leverage toward increases in grant and contract support from federal. state .and corporate sources.

The study of uses for high pressure water jets is one of the "Peaks of Excellence" areas at UM-Rolla. Under the direction of Dr. David Summers, Curators' Professor of Mining Engineering and director of the high pressure water jet laboratory, UMR's water jet process has been adapted to the performance of several tasks. Used in mining machines named Hydrominer I and II, it cuts coal more safely and just as quickly as conventional machines. It has been used for drilling-it can even drill around corners, and it can be used for dangerous cleaning jobs such as salvage or conversion of armaments. In this picture, the water jet is cutting through granite to form one of the stones used in UM-Rolla's Stonehenge. As you can see, the jet is down to the last few inches on the granite face .

Direct Support Opportunities • Research Contracts • Matching fund research projects • Faculty consultants By identifying mutually beneficial areas of cooperation, UM-Rolla can provide cost effective research and consultation for industry. Direct and indirect benefits will accrue to the operating units of the sponsoring company and to the University from the faculty and staff professional development and renewal process. University and industry research also can benefit from state and federal financial assistance. The Missouri Research Assistance Act of 1982 created a program that provides state initiatives. Funding is on the basis of one state dollar for·every two private dollars, and it has been used to benefit both the sponsoring corporation and the university. Under that Act, with the assistance of industrial co-sponsors, faculty researchers-and the students they direct-have engaged in a number of

Sun projects. And there are many more opportunities available. Support levels range from a few thousand to nearly a million dollars. An example is the sigrial pro· cessing laboratory in UMR's electrical engineering department. The equipll!ent has come to the university through a Research Assistance Act funded project sponsored by McDonnell-Douglas with state matching support. In addition to contributing needed information for an important industry, the' lab will provide students with hands-on experience using state-of-the·art equipment. At the federal level the University/Industry Cooperative Research Program, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, encourages universities and industries to enter cooperative relationships to engage in research projects. Through this 'program, the company and the university can benefit. Industrial sponsors can obtain support for faculties and facilities. Of interest to both the technical entrepreneur and the university is the Small Business Innovation Research program coordinated by the SBA. UMR par· ticipates in the program through its Centers for Applied Engineering and Technological Development. This program sets aside a portion of federal research and development funding in technological areas for small businesses. One purpose of SBIR is to provide incentives for innovative small businesses to engage in research that might result in the development of new products and processes.

General Support Opportunities • Scholarships and Fellowships • Program Enhancement Gifts • Equipment and Facilities To sustain excellence in a particular academic area, support is necessary to provide the extra incentives which encourage extraordinary effort on the part of faculty and students. Scholarships al'ld fellowships guarantee that qualified students will be able to pursue their chosen interests. Program support is necessary to enable faculty and students to attend professional meetings or visit institutions doing similar work; to purchase the latest 'books or software programs, and to provide clerical and staff assistance. Gifts of special equipment or of funds to purchase special equip-

ment are vital to the ensutance of high quality research and education . Par· ticularly important is equipment not generally obtainable.

How The Program Works Major responsibility for the UMR program lies with the individual faculty member or faculty team in each area of research strength . It is the time, expertise and specific knowledge of the faculty, and through them· the-students. that is being offered for support consideration. The Development Office acts as a clearinghouse and gives general ad· ministrative direction to the program by providing coordination and offering advice to faculty in matters of scheduling, establishing priorities and identifying potential supporters.

Program Activities • Through consultation among faculty and administrators. areas of UM Rolla's strength have been identified . These are subject to continual review and revision . . • The Development office, with the assistance of the faculty. has made a preliminary presentation of the program to members of the UMR Development Council. Suggestions of companies with interests in the strength areas were ·sought. The process of adding names .of corporations to the list will continue as projects evolve. • After initial contact with selected companies. the Development office asks these companies to identify individuals within their organization who have responsibilities in the corresponding areas. • Development then gives designated faculty the names of corporate contacts so faculty may communicate with them to schedule meetings or other means of learning more ~bout the companies' specific needs and interests. • After areas of mutual interest have been identified. faculty, members .. prepare a proposal to the company identifying ways in which UMR and the company CJIl be mutually supportive. 'Financial backing may be provided by operating units of the company directly through active support processes or by indirect general support.

New Computerized Technology at UM-Rolla As the development of "flexible manufacturing systems" has been moving the United States and other industrialized nations to the threshold of a new industrial revolution, this new computerized technology also is transforming the way engineering is taught at the University of Missouri-Rolla. The establishment of the Institute for Flexible Manufacturing and Industrial Automation at UM R provides a focal point for the campus' instructional and research programs and activities i ~ these two areas. "Flexible manufacturing systems grew out of factory automation efforts begun ' in the 1950s with numerically controlled machines," said.Dr. Robert L. Davis, dean of the UMR School of Engineering. "These systems take that original concept further by integrating database management with computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) techniques, robotics and computer-controlled materials handling. "Because flexible manufacturing is computer-controlled, it has several advantages over conventional 'hard automation' that enable it to produce high-quality goods more efficiently and economically," he continued. "As a result, an increasing number of companies, both here and abroad, are-either planning to or are already making use of this technology. This, in turn, is having a tremendous impact on engineering education." "At UMR we have always believed that we could best meet the needs of our students by giving them hands-on experience with tomorrow's technology in today's classrooms and laboratories," Davis said. "Consequently, we felt we had to develop state-of-the-art laboratories and a curriculum that would prepare our students for the jobs that will be available in the coming years. "To accomplish this we have set as our goal the development of a flexible manufacturing system in UMR's School of Engineering," he added . "We were fortunate in that much of the expertise and some of the equipment necessary for such an undertaking already existed on campus." In developing this system and a corresponding curriculum, UM-Rolla's approach has been different from that of many other universities. "We chose to structure our program from the bottom up and concentrate on undergraduate education," Davis explained. "We believed it was necessary, given the needs of American industry , to develop a comprehensive program that would introduce the maximum number of students to this new technology ."

Program Development

In 1979 and 1980, UMR laid the cornerstone fo r its flexible manufacturing pr9gram with the purchase of $1.5 million worth of computer graphics equipment, including a host compu ter for graph ics and 24 graphics terminals. This equipment, together with a special classroom that was outfitted for the system , enabled UMR to begin offering instruction in computer-aided design and analysis techniq ues in the summer of 1981 . Most engineering students at UM-Rolla receive their initial exposure to computer-aided design in their freshman engineering graphics class ("Engineering Drawing and Descriptive Geometry"). In that course, they learn how to produce soph isticated engineering drawings and perform engineering analysis on a com· puter terminal instead of at a drafting table. "Our Computer Aided Design (CAD) system is programmed to provide students with numerous drafting and geometric capabilities," said Wells N. Leitner, professor-in-charge of engineering graphics at UMR . "It also allows drawings to be produced in a much shorter time than those do ne by hand. and it enables students to analyze their designs at every stage of development.·'

A sophomore-level course in "Gr<\phical Design" which introduces students to mechanisms, also is offered. 'This course uses the CAD system to study such things as gear tooth geometries and mesh, cam profiles and cam-actuated mechanisms. linkage displacement analysis and two- and three-dimensional vector plots." said George Swancutt, UMR associate professor of engineering graphics and course instructor. "Using locally written programs. students also can study selected plane mechanisms in animated motion ." Th~ next component in UMR's flexible manufacturing system came with the purchase of a PUMA (Programmable Universal Machine for Assembly) 600 in· dustrial robot in July 1981. The robot can be used to simulate numerous industrial operations and has become an integral part of several research projects and a valuable teaching tool, serving courses in mechanical engineering and com puter science. That summer UMR also received a $250.000 CAUSE (Comprehensive Assistance to Undergraduate Science Education) grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant, together with matching institutional funds, has been used for a project that deals with the "Development and Implementation of an Integrated Computer-Aided Design. Analysis and Manufacturing System." In addition to the development of that system, the project also investigated ways that it could best be integrated into UMR's mechanical and aerospace engineering curriculum . "The CAUSE grant has been extremely helpful in our efforts to make this new technology a part of our curriculum." said Dr. Thomas Faucett. UMR professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and project director. "The project has been a multidisciplinary effort with faculty members from several departments contributing. "It's really brought the campus together," he added. "and the use of this new technology really has grown in our courses and laboratories because of it." With the CAUSE grant UM -Rolla has been able to purchase additional computer equipment, 'I state-of-the-art direct numerically controlled milling machine tool, a flexible numerically controlled lathe and turning center and two largescreen graphics video projectors for use in lectures. In addition. the grant has provided support for the development of extensive relevant computer software and interfaces. Other flexible manufacturing-related facilities that UMR has developed include CAD/CAM, robotics and computer data acquisition and control laboratories in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department; an image processing laboratory in the electrical engineering department and a business graphics laboratory in the engineering management department. In addition, a digital signal processing laboratory is currently under development in the electrical engineering department. In the summer of 1983. UM R was one of 20 universities nationwide selected by the IBM Corp. to receive a $2 million state-of· the-art CA D/CAM system as part of the compa ny's Man ufacturing Engineering G rant Program. That system. which includes an IBM 434 1 host computer. graph ics terminals and several software packages, has been insta lled and is now operational. "The system that we received from IBM is similar to and will complement the one we already have," sa id Dr. O.R. Plummer. director of computing and infor· mations systems at UM R. " It will double our computing capabilities in this area as well as do ubling the number of work stat.ions available to our students." This system also will ~u ppo rt a significan t management component in addition to provid ing numerous enginee ring applications and capabili ties. "This manage· ment component represents the new dimension that this system opens for us." sa id Dr. Raymond Klu u/:y. UM R associate professor of engineering manage· ment.

Institute for Flexible Manufacturing and Industrial Automation The establishment of the Institute for Flexible Manufacturing and Industrial Automation was "the next logical step in the continuing development of campus programs in these two areas," according . to Dr. Richard T. John~on, institute director and UMR professor of mechanical engineering. Faculty from the UM -Rolla departments of mechanical and aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, engineering management. engineering mechanics, computer science and economics are associated with the institute.

"The interdisciplinary nature of the institute will foster cooperative instructional and research programs among faculty members in these departments," Johnson said. "It also will facilitate the integration of these programs into our undergraduate engineering curricula." In addition, the institute will support faculty development in the areas of intelligent computin¡g and automated manufacturing, establish an information center on flexible manufacturing and related topics and assist in the development and cooperative use of flexible manufacturing facilities and equipment.

The freshman engineering graphics course enables . students to learn to produce sophisticated engineering drawings and perform engineering analysis on a computer terminal instead of at a drawing table,


The PUMA 600 industrial robot can be used to simulate numerous industrial operations and has become an integral part of several courses in mechanical engineering and computer science as well as a component of several research projects.

The programmer prepares graphical representation of Knot yard threedimensional cam. The computer will prepare machine language code for transmission to CNC milling machine. When the program computer is in a remote location from the CNC machine (in the computer lab) , new parts can be programmed for the same or different machine while milling is in progress.

The CNC machine mills a wax model of the, Knot yard cam from program transmitted from the computer. The wax model will be identical to the prototype cam and the prototype is used to verify the program steps.

A Small Automated Factory Laboratory According to Dean Davis, the flexible manufacturing system which is currently under development at UMR "will amount to a small automated factory" when complete. The system will function in the following manner: -Parts will be designed on UMR's computer graphics system. All of the design information will be stored in a central computer for future reference during the manufacturing process. -Automatically controlled carts following imbedded cables or stripes painted on the floor will deliver materials to machining centers. . -Once these materials have been delivered to the machining centers, they will be removed from the carts by robots and placed in computer-controlled lathes or milling machines, where they will be machined to specifications stored in the central computer. Other robots may do welding or perform assembly operations at various stage& of the manufacturing process. In the future, these robots will become more intelligent and will possess senses such as vision and touch. - When the machining .has been completed, a robot will remove the part from the computer-controlled machine and place it back on the cart or on a conveyor belt for its trip to the next work station. -After completion, the newly made part will be scrutinized by a camera that contains a semiconductor chip that can "see" and instantly measure any deviation from the design information stored in the computer. - When the inspection of the part is complete, it will be sent to a packaging facility that can be integrated into the system. -All of these operations will be monitored by means of computer terminals a~ remote locations.

"In practical terms such flexible manufacturing facilitieS will require only a small work force," Davis said, "and because they are computer-controlled, changes can be made in design, number of articles to be produced and other areas simply by changing the programs that control the system. "This means," he added, "that the same facility can be used to manufacture a wide variety of components or subsystems. This situation is in sharp contrast to conventional 'hard automation: in which extensive retooling is necessary in order to change the product line. It also improves product quality, increases efficiency, makes the manufacture of small batches of components financially feasible and dramatic.ally reduces design and manufacturing time ." In order to allow students ~o gain the best possible experience with this equipment , a corresponding curriculum has been under development at UMR with new courses being offered and new technology being integrated into existing ones. Siudents in the upper level CAD/CAM course, which has been approved for the past 'several semesters, make use of UM-Rolla's computer graphics system to : design a part. It is then produced using the department's computer¡controlled milling machines. "When the computer drafting has been completed and the part's geometry defined, post-processing software allows the generation of tool paths with operator supervision and visual illustration of cutter movement over the part for verification," said Dr. Faucett. "Once satisfactory tool paths have been generated, additional post-processing provides machine language coding that can be sent directly to the appropriate machine tool for the actual production of the part," he added. The course on roboti¡:, Ihat Dr. David Ardayfio, UMR assistant professor of mechanical engineering, tc:aches is concerned with the study of kinematics, or the

motion , of robotic manipulators; robot dynamics; robot work space geometry ; robot programming and control; and applications. "The course consists of three major parts," Ardayfio explained. "The students learn about ma'1ipulator geometry, which deals with the work space of the robot, and kinematics, which is concerned with joint motion. They als6 do laboratory work with the PUMA 600 robot that stimulates actual industrial operations and computer simulations." Although the facility became operational just a year ago, the mechanical and aerospace engineering department's computer graphics laboratory alre~dy has . been integrated into several of the department's other courses as well. These courses include: "Kinematics," "Machine Design," 'Thermodynamics" and "Vibrations." The facility also is used for demonstrations and in individual projects. Mechanical and aerospace engineering's computer data acquisition and control laboratory features commercially available microcomputers and data acquisition systems and programmable controllers designed for use in an industrial environ¡ ment. The laboratory was implemented in the fall of 1982 through the efforts of Dr. Johnson and Ken R. Schmid, UMR teaching associate in mechanical engineering, with financial support from foundation and industrial sources. "This laboratory and corresponding course work are designed to introduce our students to the use of the microcomputer as an engineering tool," said Johnson, ' who teaches the course in this area. "Emphasis is placed on understanding the application of these systems to engineering problems and not on the microcomputers themselves. "The students learn about such things as the use of the microcomputer for data acquisition, processing and graphica l display ," he added. "The course also

deals with some of the potential applications of microcomputers in plant supervision ; measurement, control and assembly systems; and robotics." In UMR's electrical engineering department , Dr. Randy Moss, assistant professor of electrical engineering, received a grant from the General Electric Foundation to develop an image-processing laboratory and course. In this course, which was based on a research project Moss conducted on robotic vision, students learn basic image processing techniques and how to apply these techniques to robotic vision systems. It was offered for the first time in the 1983 fall semester. "Students in the UMR engineering management department have been receiving increased exposure to computerized decision-making techniques in recent years," Dr. Raymond Kluczny said. "Our new engineering management software will enable them to do work in forecasting, inventory management , master production schedule planning, plant monitoring and control, customer order servic- . ing and plant maintenance among other things." The UMR computer science department has been offering courses in computer graphics for the past 10 years, and in the 1981 winter semester, Dr. Peter C. Ho, UMR professor of computer science, offered what he termed "one of the first courses in robotics to be taught in the Midwest." . Ultimately, the state and the nation will benefit from the UMR students' experience with this new technology. "American industry needs the trained professionals that UMR will be able to provide in this area in order to remain competitive in the world market," Dean Davis said. "In addition, the integration of this technology into our curriculum and the presence of this equipment on our campus will mean increased external research funding for UMR. It also will help Missouri attract and develop new technology-based industry."

UMR Stonehenge UM-Rolla Stonehenge, a half-scale partial reconstruction of Stonehenge, the ancient megalith located on Salisbury Plain 75 miles southwest of London , was dedicated on June 20, on the summer solstice at the site on the northwest edge of campus (14th Street and Bishop A venue)_ The UMR replica of Stonehenge incorporates many of the features of the original and includes two capabilities that the original jid not possess. It features a 50-foot-in-diameter ring of 29 Y2 sarsen stones around a horseshoe of five trilithons through wh ich various sightings of su nrise and sunset can be made. The sarsen stones are I Y2 feet high, wh ile each of the trilithons measures 13 Y4 feet from the ground to the top of the lintel. There also is a heel stone, four compass markers and low- level lighting for night use.

On The Cover

The south-facing trilithon is provided with an aperture for an analemma. Our¡ ing. the year, the noon sun sh ining through this opening describes a figure "8" on the horizontal and vertical stones at the base of the trilithon . At noon each _day, the analemma can be used to determine the date from the location of the sun's image on the figure "8". The north-facing trilithon is equipped with a polaris window through which the North Star can be viewed. T his feat ure and the analemma were not part of the original Stonehenge and were added so that visitors can make use of U MRolla Stonehenge at night and during the day . A marker bearing the inscription "UMR-Stonehenge" has been placed in the center of the monument. This marker identifies the spot as an official triangulation point in the National Geodetic Survey's North American Triangulation Net work. (Such points are used for mapping and control purposes. ) Approx imatel y 160 tons of granite were used in the monument. The rock was cut to the proper dimensions by UMR's wa terjet equ ipment. This equipment used two waterjets cutting at a pressure of 15 ,000 pounds per sq uare inch traversing the surface just like a conventional saw. The jets moved at a speed of about 10 feet per minute and cut one-quarter inch on each path. The Original Stonehenge

Sunrise, which registers through the southeast trilithon of UMR's Stonehenge, is very early in the first part of June. A sleepy photographer caught this scene shortly after the trilithon was put in place this year.

The original Stonehenge was built in three stages beginning abo ut 2800 B.C. and ending about 1100 B.C. and can be classified as one of the world's outstan ding engineering project s. Stones weighing tons were cut , shaped, transported great distances and raised and placed with tremendous acc uracy using onl y primitive technology. Th e first phase was built by the Late Stone Age people, the second phase by the Beakers and the third phase by the Wessex people during the Bronze Age. Stonehenge consists ul a series of circular rings of standing stone set in a pat ¡ tern which relates them to important positions of the sun and moon . The outer

ring is made up of sarsen stones. each capped with a lill":1 so that there was a walkway around the monument. Within this circle a ~e rles of five trilithons. each consisting of two uprights /21 -25 feet high and weighing 50 tons) and a capstone. were arranged in a horseshoe shape . The en tire array is ur iented so that the ris.ing sun at the summer solstice ca n be observed through the central trilithon aligned with the "heel stone" outside the ring. The "heel stone." one of the first large stones which the early builders erected . at Stonehenge. was 20 feet long. eight feet wide. seven feet thick and weighed an estimated 35 tons. This stone is entirely natural in shape and was not altered by chipping or scraping. The 19-sarsen stones following the one-half size stone indicate that Stonehenge's builders were aware of the 19-year eclipse cycle. while the 29 Vz sarsen stones represented the lunar month . It also was possible to accurately predict seasonal changes. eclipses and moon phase~.

Adrian Daane

Dr. Adrian Daane, who has received the titles of emeritus dean of graduate study and emeritus professor of chemistry at UMR, promises that his retirement will be an active one. The first order of business for Daane and his wife, Jean, will be a move to La Grange, Ga. "We've enjoyed Rolla and UMR tremendously during the past 12 years, and we will be taking a lot of good memories with us," Daane said. Daane also will miss UMR and all that the campus has to offer. "UMR i~ a unique environment for a scientist or an engineer," he said, "and it's one-that I found to be very comfortable and stimulating. "The students at UMR are also some of the most able that I have encountered during my teaching career," he added. "The feelings and attachment they have fOF the campus is extraordinary. The Daanes are looking forward to their move to Georgia for several reasons. "Our children live in Atlanta and La Grange is only about 50 miles away from there," he said. "Living in La Grange will give us the opportunity to spend more time with our family." La Grange also is the home of La Grange College, where Daane will serve as an adjunct professor of chemistry._ La Grange's proximity to "a yery nice large lake" also appeals to Daane. "Jean and I learned to sail while I was on the faculty l!t Kansas State University," he said. "It will be nice to get out on the water again, particularly during the hot GeOrgia summer." Other activities to which Daane plans to devote more time are golf, gardening - .and flying. "I took flying lessons from Del Day (UMR Curators' Professor of ceramic engineering) several years ago and earned my pilot's license," he said. Daane also plans to stay involved professionally. ''I'll present lectures throughout the country under the auspices of the American Chemical Society on ~opics related to the research I have done on the rare earth elements," he said: Daane joined the UMR faculty in 1972. Prior to that he served on the faculties of Iowa State University and Kansas State University. He was awarded a B.S. degree in chemistry from the University of Florida in 1941 and a Ph .D. in chemistry from Iowa State University in 1950.

Madison Daily Receives UM-Rolla's First Ph.D. In Engineering Management


Receiving the first Ph.D. degree in engineering management awarded by the University of Missouri-Rolla was a dream come true for Madison M.¡ Daily, Rolla. "I had been waiting for some time to walk across the stage and receive my doctorate," said Daily, who received his degree at UMR's III th annual com. mencement in May. Daily began his work toward a Ph.D. in the 1960s at UCLA but the demands of his Air Force career caused him to interrupt his studies. "Ever since then I had dreamed of resuming my studies," he said. "When UMR established its Ph.D. program in engineering managment three years ago, everything started to come together and I went back to school." Daily's return to school followed a 25-year career in the Air Force-he retired in 1979 with the rank of colonel-and two years working in private industry. "I was familiar with U MR because of the three years (1971-74) I spent on campus as chairman of the Air Force ROTC program ," he said. "Coming back to UMR . was like returning home for me." Daily also knew about student life at UMR through his children. "Two of my daughters and my son have graduated from UMR ," he said. "In addition , another daughter is currently a junior at UM R and my wife is taking classes here." . Despite some initial nervousness, Daily, who is 51, had no problems readjusting to being a student again. In fact, he finished his three years at UMR with all A's. "I found that I blended right in and that age was no factor in my dealings with other students," he said. "My career experiences also helped me in school and I recommend going back to college for other people my age.

MADISON M. DAI LY "I believe that learning is a lifetime experience and I'm not about to stop now ," he added . , Daily, whose background is in aerospace engineering, believes that management skills are important for all engineers and that UMR offers a unique program in this area. "The program at UMR is a good blend of theory and practice," he said. "Theory is an essential part of all management, and it is from the application of theory to practical situations that you learn the lessons that remain with you for life." His Ph.D. dissertation was an applied project that dealt with the development of a computerized decision support system for a trucking company. "I really think that doing an applied project enhanced my education," he said. "I have presented papers on this subject in San Antonio and Louisville and my work has been very well-received by the trucking industry. "As in many other industries, computers are having a revolutionary effect on the trucking industry in the United States," he added. "Computer skills will become even more essential in the future." Following commencement Daily traveled to San Francisco to present a paper at the annual meeting of the Institute of Management Science/Operations Research Society of America. He spent the summer in Kansas City implementing his decision support system in a trucking company there. In the fall , Daily will return to UMR again, but this time it will be as a teacher. "I will be an assistant professor in the engineering managment department ," he said. "I've enjoyed the teaching I've done as a graduate assistant, and I'm looking forward to doing it on a full-time basis." Daily holds a B.S. from the U,S. Naval Academ y and an M.S. from the Air Force Institute of Technology.

Alumnus Circulation The ALUM NUS is . published six times per year, February, April, June, August, October, and December, The February , August and December issues are in tabloid format , the o,ther issues are magazines. The February ALUM路 NUS carries a report of the Alumni An路 nual Fund and the Honor Roll of Donors. The December issue has stories of Homecoming activities, Association reports, and results of elections. The oth~r issues carry general news of alum路 ni and the University.


The publication of the ALUMNliS is financed by gifts to the ANNUAL ALUMNI FUND. University funds do not pay for the ALUMNUS. The Board of Directors of the MSM-UMR Alumni Association sets the circulation policy and these are its guidelines: - Each issue is mailed to all members of the most recent graduating class. -Each issue is distributed to all faculty and staff members. . -Each issue is mailed to all University of MiSsouri Curators and certain University administrators. -The February, August, and December issues are mailed to all alumnI of record. - The other issues are mailed to donors to the Annual Alumni Fund, so that they receive six issues after the date of " their gift. This variation in mailing lists results in some problems. We get news items in a variety of ways and do not make it a practice to check to see if the news item refers to a donor to the Fund-that is not a part of the decision of whether to publish. Consequently, we do publish items which refer to alumni who are not regular readers of the ALUMNUS. They never know. Frequently, we get a news item without any identification as to the alumnus involved. If you have sent us an item and you be.1ieve we have ignored it, there are several tests YOIl can make: First, are you a current donor (you are not current if you get Fund mailings), and se- . cond, was the item identified so that your name and relationship to UMR was clear. Let us know if we are guilty of missing a newsworthy item-that is not our intention.

UMR Places Eight Athletes on MIAA All-Academic Team The University of Missouri-Rolla placed eight athletes on the 1984 MIAA All-Academic team, as seven men and one woman were honored for their prowess in the c1assroom_


UMR had more representatives on the team than any other conference school, with the exception of Northwest Missouri State's 13 athletes. The scholars were selected strictly on gradepoint average, with field of study not figuring into the criteria.


"Weare very proud of the accomplishments of this group of young .student-athletes," said Miner athletic director Billy Key. "When you consider the fields of study involved, it makes their success even more rewarding and satisfying."

The honored Miner athletes were: Dave Moellenhoff (basketball)-4.0 in electrical engineering; Todd f'/entz (basketball)-3.78 in pre-medicine; John Borthwick (track)-3.80 in petroleum engineering; Tim Schoenecker (track)-3.78 in engineering management; Jim Bullard (cross country)-3.76 in electrical engineering; Chris Colona (wrestling)-3.56 in electrical engineering; Brad Lee (baseball)-3.55 in electrical engineering, and Karen Penney (cross country)-3.79 in chemical engineering.

Of the above group, Wentz gained national recognition. He was selected second-team Academic All-American by The College Sports Informati~n Directors of America.

Miners Place Fifth Nationally A team of six mining engineering students from UM-Rolla finished fifth in the sixth annual Intercollegiate Mining Competition held in Reno, Nev . last spring. The UMR team, which was sponsored by the campus's student chapter of the Society of Mining Engineers of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers competed against 14 other teams representing universities in the United States and Canada that have mining engineering programs. The competition featured contests that tested the participants' proficiency in such traditional mining skills as hand steeling of blast holes with a steel bit and a four-pound hammer, machine drilling of blast holes with a jackleg drill, bow sawing of mine timers, laying a section

of rail spiked to ties and hand mucking or shoveling rock into a mine car. Depending on the event, the teams were judged on the basis of how quickly they completed various operations or how much progress they were able to make within a given time. "Our students worked long and hard preparing for the competition," said Dr. Charles Beasley, chairman of the UMR mining engineering department, "and all of the team members recorded their best individual scores at the nationals. "It was a tremendous experience for the students and one I'm sure they will remember for a long time," he added. "We're very proud of them." The winning team in the national competition receives a trophy and hosts the following year's competition. Next year's meet will be held in Butte, Mont.

Metallurgical Grant Matthew J. O'Keefe, a UMR senior in metallurgical engineering from Rolla, was awarded ' a $2500 Summer Project Granl for 198'4 through ' the Olin Cor· poration Charitable Trust. The grant was one of 10 awarded na.tionwide. Under the grant, O'Keefe is conduct ing research at UMR to investigate the role of lubricant-implant interactions when ion-implanted steel specimens are . subjected to wear conditions. "It is believed that through proper selection of surface treatment and lubri · cant. steel components can be design ~d 10 lasl 10 10 100 times longer than normal," said Dr. Ronald Kohser. UMR associate professor of metallurgical engineering .. "This summer project will investigate ihe validity of these assump· tions and optimize the resultant processes." Kohser and Dr. Edward B. Hale, UMR professor of physics, serve as project adviserS. Nineteen colleges and universities were invited to nominate one candidate each and the 10 recipients were selected from these nominees. Upon comple~ion of the project. the 10 recipients will submit reports which will be judged by the Olin Corporation Charitable Trust. The student judged to have performed the best work will be awarded an additional $2,500 scholarship for continued study during his or her sen ior year. O'K!!efe is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Thomas J. O'Keefe, Rolla. O'Keefe, '58, is a professor of metallurgical engineeringat UMR.

Liberal Arts Scholarships UM -Rolla has awarded scholarships for the 1984-85 academic year to an entering freshman in each of the following UMR departments : English, economics, history-political science and psychology . - Students arid the areas which they were awarded scholarships are: John C. Van Besien (English), Rolla; Charles M. Carver (history-political science), Rolla; Timothy P. Thompson (economics), Cabool; and Andrea E. Volmer (psychology), Plato. "We are very pleased to be able to award these scholarships to these outstanding students," said Dr. Marvin Barker, dean of the UMR College of Arts and Sciences. "This is the first time that we have awarded these scholarships," he added, "and We had many outstanding applications to consider. Selecting the awardees was a difficult but pleasant task."

work. "All of our big brothers and sisters are volunteers who must undergo an in¡ tensive screening process and instructional period before joining the program," Daane said.

"At present, 18 out of 41 big.brothers and big sisters in Rolla are UMR students," Daane, said. "I think this speaks very highly of these students and their concern for other people and the community. They really give a lot of themselves to the program."

"Each volunteer," she added, "then must agree to spend at least two to four hours per week-most of them spend more-with their little brother or sister. They also must do this for at least one year."

Being a big brother or big sister to a child from a single-parent family takes a great deal of commitment and a lot of

vacations and after graduation," Daane said. . "In fact, we had one student who bicycled from Jefferson City to Rolla several times one summer to spend time with his little brother," she added. "The students really take an interest in the children." This dedication is appreciated by the students' little brothers and sisters. "The children really look up to the students," Daane said. "They think they're the greatest." The UMR students also think that their little brothers and sisters are something special. "I always wanted a

big brother of my own when I was younger," said Jeff Massengill, a UMR senior in civil engineering. "I know how close my dad and I were and I like doing some of the things we used to do together like fishing and playing ball with my little brother in Rolla. I really enjoy the time we spend together." Participating in the program also has other rewards for UMR ' students. "I come from a large family," said David Millman, a UMR senior in engineering management, "and I missed all of my brothers and sisters when I went away to college. Having a little brother has helped Rolla feel more like home to me."

Harry B. Smith, '42 Wins AESS "Pioneer Award"

1 f


o Harry B. Smith, '42, president-defense and electronic systems, Westinghouse Electric Corp., received the Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) "Pioneer Award" in May. One of the traditions of the AESS and its predecessor groups of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the annual "Pioneer A ward," established in 1949. The list of winners of this award constitutes a roster of distinguished persons who have contributed notable achievements to the technical fields of AESS. The award is given for "contributing significantly to bringing into being systems that are in existence." The contributions for which the award is given should have occurred at least 20 years prior to the year of the award in order to ensure proper historical perspective for evaluation of the con路 tribution. After receiving his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from MSM, Smith joined the Naval Research Laboratory then spent two years as an officer in the Army Signal Corps. In 1946 he joined Davies Laboratories and developed radar altimeters and fuses for the Diamond Ordnance Laboratory. While at Davies he received a masters degree from the University of Maryland in 1949.


He joined Westinghouse in 1952, became manager of radar development in 1953 and immediately initiatect an in路house funded PD (pulse doppler) radar development. He became manager of advanced development in 1959 and chief engineer, aerospace, in 1962. He completed the advanced management program at Harvard in 1964 and became general manager of the aerospace division in 1966 where he guided the development and production of all Westinghouse PD radars. In 1972, Smith initiated the WX series of modular. design路 to-cost radars being used today on the F16, BI and DIVADS. He attained his present position with Westinghouse in 1977 . Smith received the Westinghouse special patent award in 1960, the Sarnoff award (for pulse doppler) in 1962, the Westinghouse Order of Merit in 1969: He has 15 patents, was elected a Fellow of IEEE in 1965, and was a member of the AF Scientific Advisory Board 1965-1974. He was technical chairman of the 1983 Old Crows Symposium, and is currently national chairman of NSIA. He received UM R's Alumni Achievement A ward in 1980, the professional degree, management engineer, in 1977, and路a Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Maryland in 1982. He is a member of UMR's Academy of Electrical Engineering.

Vicki Johnson, '82 Wins Awards in Virginia She's outstandingly intelligent and recently won the local and district competitions in the Virginia Business and Professional Women's Club Young Career Woman Competition. Her name is Vicki Johnson and she's an aerospace technologist in the Aeronautical Systems Office of NASA's Langley Research Center. A native of Spokane, Wash., she began her career at Langley in August 1978 as an engineering co-op. In 1982 she graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri-Rolla with a bachelor of science degree in aeronautical engineering. She began working permanently at Langley in June 1982. Johnson's supervisor at Langley, Harry Heyson, vehicle integration manager in the Aeronautical Systems Office, said that during her co-op period "she showed remarkable aptitude and learning ability. Within a few weeks, she was operating a complex of massive computer programs in the redesign of a supersonic transport configuration. Her work was so successful that her efforts were incorporated into a model which was tested in one of Langley's supersonic wind tunnels." She maintained this aptitude throughout her co-op period and Heyson said, "We felt particularly favored, when Ms. Johnson chose to work with us after graduation." _ She is currently the Young Members Chairperson for the Hampton Roads Chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. She is also a

member of the Engineers Club of the Virginia Peninsula. Johnson's interest and exceIlence is not limited to engineering, however. She is also a competent flute player and a member of the adult handbell choir at the First Methodist Church in Hampton . This warm and well-rounded individual urges college students to get involved in a co-op program because "it makes school a lot more tolerable." She commented that she probably wouldn't have finished school without the co-op program because she couldn't relate to what she was being taught. The experience that she received as a co-op showed her what she could expect from a career in engineering and she liked what she saw and decided to stay in school. But what does she want to do with her future? "My goals for the next 10 years include completing my formal education through the Ph.D. level, developing an expertise in the areas of aircraft systems integration and advanced technology appljcation and making several significant contributions to the aerospace field . Additionally, I want to teach graduate-level classes on a part-time basis to begin preparation for the second phase of my career as a full -time professor/researcher at a well-known university." With her past record of performance, she should have no trouble attaining these goals. Reprinted from "Langley Researcher"
