i 173 RICHARD A. WOOD received a B.S. degree in geology (1952) from the Ohio State University. He then joined Battelle Columbus Laboratories where he has worked for 30 years on titanium metallurgy research. Currently, he is Battelle's principal research scientist in the physical metallurgy section. In conjunction with his titanium research, he has served as titanium specialist with the Metals and Ceramics Information Center and was on the 1969 MAB Panel on Usage of Titanium and Its Compounds with Comments on Scrap and Sponge. In 1972 he prepared a Titanium Alloys Handbook as a primary reference for DOD and commercial titanium users. His continued research on titanium was used to prepare handbooks and repo rt s f or several government age nc ies and industrial Organizations. They contained mainly information on industry problems and the availability and utilization of titanium. His broad metals and materials expertise includes alloy development, processing, properties evaluation, application assessments, and failure analyses relevant to a range of materials with specialization in titanium metallurgy.
