Khraishi chosen to serve as journal editor for ASME

February 26, 2021 - by Kim Delker

Tariq Khraishi, professor of mechanical engineering at The University of New Mexico, has been appointed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to serve as an associate editor of the Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology, produced by the society.

His appointment is for a three-year term.

He is currently working with the publication to produce a special Issue for one of the famous names in metal plasticity and plastic deformation, Hussein Zbib, who died unexpectedly last year, to honor his contributions to the field.

The Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology is one of the oldest U.S.-based journals in the field of mechanical engineering, with a focus on materials research, and is highly competitive (only about 10% of the submissions are published). ASME is one of the largest technically-based engineering societies.
