Professor Frank Travis joins the Editorial Board as an Advisor to the journal of Manufacturing Review (January 2014)

We are pleased to announce that Professor Frank Travis now joins the Editorial Board of the journal as an Advisor to the journal.

Professor Travis worked for various university departments during his extraordinary career, namely Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Manchester (formerly with UMIST); Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management, The University of Strathclyde; Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University; and School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. He was also the Head of Department, Mechanical Engineering, University of Sunderland. Working in these departments, he made significant contributions to the development of the departments. In fact, his engagement with research and teaching is far beyond these organisations. For example, he was appointed Honorary Professor of the Silesian University of Technology, Poland, and has close links with universities in Taiwan, South Korea, Ireland, Malaysia, Germany and USA.

Professor Frank Travis was a pioneer in research in explosive forming/high-rate forming, the applications of which spanned from extrusion, tubular forming, sheet forming, blanking to welding. His later research activities also covered wide ranges of metalforming processes, from fine-blanking, piercing, hydroforming, hydrostatic extrusion, to forging. His knowledge in high-rate forming, impact and penetration mechanics, general metalforming technology and applications is recognised internationally. His terrific skill in lecturing has attracted a wide range of audiences from scientists and engineers to undergraduates and the general public.

The most notable contribution to science and engineering by Professor Frank Travis is the Journal of Materials Processing Technology which he launched in 1975. The journal became one of the most popular journals in the world in the manufacturing field. The impact of the journal is difficult to be defined. However, the widespread uses of the journal by academics, researchers and engineers are comparable to those of any leading engineering journals. The success of the journal was not only due to his diligence and enthusiasm for the dissemination of engineering knowledge when he was the editor of the journal for over 27 years, but also to his professionalism in assessing and editing technical papers.

Professor Frank Travis’s vast experience in developing the Journal of Materials Processing Technology will certainly help the growth of the Journal of Manufacturing Review. We look forward to working with Frank on this journal and also wish to use this opportunity to express our gratitude for his kindness to help the journal and its editorial board.
