Under the great joint effort of Professor Rosiczkowski, Chair of Mechanical Engineering, Rosalie DiRaimondo and Marcy Bradley, a book reception for Dr. Jinghong Fan's book "Multiscale Analysis of Deformation and Failure of Materials" was held Tuesday, February 8th from 11:30-1:00pm at the Alfred University Bookstore. Dean Doreen Edwards of the Inamori School of Engineering (SOE), professors from SOE, the Department of Physics, Business colleages, Scholes library, graduate students, and undergraduate students who have used the draft of the book in 2010 and the newly released book attended this reception. Students and a distance learning student from Corning Inc. who are now taking Dr. Fan's course "Mechanics of Materials" also attended this reception. The following 21 pictures show the happy activity at the reception.
